Why Convert Your Wood-Burning Fireplace to Gas?

Nothing quite beats the crackling magic of a wood-burning fire … but that comes at a price. To enjoy a wood fire, you must first chop or buy wood (which means you need a place to store it), haul it inside, arrange it in the fireplace, open the flue, and get the fire to catch. You’ll also need to keep adding wood as the fire burns. When you want to put out the fire, you’ll have to take care to make sure it’s truly out. Occasionally, you’ll have to clean out soot.

All of that labor goes out the door when you convert your wood-burning fireplace to gas. You can have a roaring fire going in seconds and stop it instantly whenever you want. No mess, no stress — just a beautiful fire in your fireplace!

Converting a Wood Fireplace Using Gas Logs

Gas logs are a stack of ceramic logs that are placed directly inside your existing fireplace. They have a gas burner, and the flames come up through the logs in a realistic fashion. You can choose any kind of log design — the type of wood they are modeled after and how charred they appear can all be customized. Gas logs have a control unit in the fireplace, and most of them also come with a remote for convenience.

Converting a Wood Fireplace Using a Gas Insert

Gas fireplace inserts are popular in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC, homes. A gas insert is a metal box that fits exactly inside your existing fireplace. We essentially create a gas stove inside the opening of your fireplace. The metal box has a slightly smaller metal box inside of it. The gas insert heats the air in the space between these two boxes, then emits heat from its firebox.
