Gas fireplace inserts let you start a fire in seconds that immediately warms the room it’s in, so it makes sense that gas fireplaces inserts are the top choice of homeowners. Gas inserts are easy to use, dependable, and clean; the advantages of using a gas fireplace insert over a traditional masonry fireplace are clear. Let’s take a closer look at gas fireplace inserts.
Is your masonry fireplace failing to keep your family warm? You don’t have to tear out your old fireplace to put in a new one; a gas fireplace insert fits right in the firebox. You won’t have to remodel your living room when using a gas fireplace insert. Our crews comprise certified chimney sweeps who will install a quality gas fireplace insert made by Regency. FlameMaster’s chimney sweeps have the training and experience to install a gas fireplace insert safely and efficiently.
Gas fireplace inserts are fueled in one of two ways, natural gas or propane. Our fireplace installation crew will run the gas lines to the insert to ensure it works properly and is safe to use. The fact that a gas fireplace insert runs on natural gas or propane makes it infinitely cleaner than old masonry fireplaces, which produced soot and coated the inside of the chimney with creosote. When you are done with a gas-burning fire insert, you simply turn off the gas with a click of your remote control. When you are done with a fire in a masonry fireplace, you have to clean up the burnt logs and the ash they produced; it can be messy and time-consuming.
Gas fireplace inserts are more efficient than masonry fireplaces and produce high-efficiency heat, which can help you save money on your heating bills. Traditional masonry fireplaces let most of the heat produced by a fire escape up the chimney, only yielding 10% to 20% efficiency. By comparison, a Regency gas fireplace insert can yield between 70% and 90% efficiency.
Regency gas fireplace inserts are easy to clean and maintain. Since there is no creosote produced by a gas-fed fire, there is no creosote buildup in your chimney. What does that mean? It means that the highly flammable creosote won’t start a chimney fire. It also means there won’t be an overpowering odor from creosote buildup. An annual inspection by one of our Chimney Sweep Institute of America (CSIA) chimney inspectors is all you need to ensure that your chimney is in good working order when you have a gas fireplace insert.
