What Are Gas Fireplace Inserts?
A gas fireplace insert is installed within an existing masonry cavity or fireplace, transforming it into an efficient, powerful heating source. The gas stove essentially is a metal box with a smaller metal box inside it that retrofits inside your existing fireplace. The gas insert heats the air in the space between these two boxes, then emits heat from its firebox to allow you to enjoy a beautiful glowing fire without heat loss from your chimney.
Benefits of Gas Fireplace Inserts
If you have an existing fireplace, there are many advantages to replacing your wood-burning fireplace with gas fireplace inserts.
Gas inserts are typically covered in glass which allows less gas and heat to escape. Chimney.com’s gas fireplace inserts are a great way to reduce your energy bills while enjoying warmth throughout your entire home or business.
Because gas fireplace inserts do not produce much smoke or other sources of pollution, they are an eco-friendly way to enjoy the comfort of a fire while reducing the carbon footprint and impact on the environment.
With gas fireplace inserts by Chimney.com, you can have the same realistic, aesthetic appeal as a natural wood-burning fireplace without the hassles of solid fuel.
Easy To Use

Clean and Easy To Maintain
One of the key benefits of gas fireplace inserts is that they are clean and easy to maintain. You’ll never have soot or creosote building up, and you won’t need a chimney sweep to clean your chimney.

Frequently Asked Questions
Gas Log Questions

Gas log fireplaces produce low-to-medium heat output, depending on whether you install vented or unvented gas logs. Ventless gas logs do not require a chimney or flue, so the heat is more likely to stay in your room.
How much does converting a wood fireplace using gas logs cost?
The price of gas log installation can run from $1,500 to over $3,000 depending on several factors, including the existing fireplace, the need to install gas lines, product choices, and more.
How long does it take to install gas logs in a wood fireplace?
A wood fireplace conversion with gas logs can typically be completed in half a day or less.
Gas Insert Questions
How much heat does a gas insert fireplace produce?
Gas fireplace inserts generate medium-to-high heat output, making them ideal for heating large spaces and colder climates.

What is a WSSC-licensed Master Plumber & Gasfitter, and why does it matter?
An improperly installed gas appliance can cause unsafe levels of carbon monoxide in a home and can also lead to explosions. For your safety, WSSC permits and inspections are required for many new/replaced gas appliances.
Only a WSSC-licensed Master Plumber & Gasfitter should perform gas fireplace installations. If your gas fireplace installer does not have a WSSC license to show you, it’s a red flag.
