Choosing Your Fuel Source: Gas Vs. Wood-burning Insert

Propane or Natural Gas:

Enjoy the convenience of continuous heating when you remodel your fireplace with a propane or natural gas insert.

With heating efficiency ratings of 70% or more, your family will enjoy a warmer, cozier living space and significantly lower heating bills.


When you want the natural ambiance of a wood-burning fire without the smoke and creosote of a traditional hearth, a wood-burning insert is an ideal fireplace makeover for a brand-new appearance. Not only is a wood-burning insert more fuel efficient, but it is also much easier to clean and maintain.

Benefits of Modernizing Your Fireplace

When your fireplace starts looking outdated, worn, and run-down, it can detract from your home’s interior appearance. Traditional masonry fireplaces are an inefficient heating source, but they can also be a fire or health hazard when the masonry or chimney liner is cracking. A new fireplace insert can restore your fireplace to your desired style without costly chimney modifications. Here is a few more reasons remodeling your fireplace is a wise investment:

  • Ambiance: Makes your fireplace the centerpiece of the living space in your choice of style, ranging from traditional to contemporary designs.
  • Higher Energy Efficiency: Remodeling your older inefficient masonry fireplace increases energy efficiency by more than 450%! That’s because most heat is distributed into your home instead of outside the chimney.
  • Lower Winter Heating Bills: When you remodel your fireplace with a robust insert, you will rely less on central heating, lowering heating bills. Ask us how you can save even more with zone heating and avoid wasting money heating unoccupied living spaces.
  • Better Indoor Air Quality: A fireplace modernized with a gas or wood-burning insert burns cleaner with less smoke and significantly fewer emissions, resulting in improved indoor air quality
  • Simpler to Operate: Whether you choose the allure of natural wood or the convenience of gas, a modernized fireplace is as easy to light as pushing a button on the fireplace or a handy remote right from your chair.
