If you have a fireplace but don't want to deal with the inconvenience of burning wood, a Gas Fireplace Insert may be the solution for you. Gas inserts are usually wood-burning fireplaces that have been converted to run on gas. Inserts are housed in a metal box that fits into the fireplace and is surrounded by a bigger metal box. The gas insert heats the air between the two boxes before releasing heat from its firebox. They're ideal for those who want to transition from a wood-burning fireplace to a more efficient and manageable heating system.

Gas Inserts, unlike Gas Logs, generate more radiant heat. If you're looking for a primary source of heat, a Gas Insert is preferable. However, they produce less heat than a Built-in Gas Fireplace. Gas inserts are available in vented and vent-free configuration, just like gas logs and fireplaces.
Gas inserts are the most cost-effective alternative. They're more expensive than gas logs but less so than a fully integrated gas fireplace. They are significantly less expensive to operate than gas logs but it’s worth it because of their efficiency.
