If you heat your home with oil or propane, this may be a tough winter, it's cold out! With temperatures well below average, and the "bomb-cyclone" upon us, you most likely have your heat turned up higher than normal. If you have natural gas in your home, you can heat your home more efficiently without replacing your oil furnace and tank.
Adding a gas fireplace insert to your home supplements your home heating and gives you oil heat a break. A new gas fireplace insert cost far less than a new furnace, and it can dramatically decrease your heating bills.
Everyone loves to enjoy sitting in front of a roaring fire. And nothing compares to the efficiency of a gas fireplace. They are also a cleaner burning option than wood and very easy to use. You may have an open wood burning fireplace, so how do you turn it to gas? A plumber runs a gas line to your open hearth, and a gas fireplace insert is easily installed. A gas fireplace insert slides directly in your present fireplace and is connected to the gas line.
Energy savings is the biggest reason that more and more customers are looking at gas fireplace inserts. A gas fireplace insert fits snugly inside your existing fireplace. There are plenty of ready- made fireplace inserts that fit into existing open hearths. After they are installed, the change to the look and feel of your home is dramatic. Gas fireplaces light with the push of a button. There is nothing like coming home and turning on the fire to help you relax and get warm.
