Installing an energy-efficient fireplace in the most-used area of your home can save money on your heating bills.
Traditional wood-burning fireplaces are often a source of air leaks and pollution. An insert fireplace is a great alternative that keeps heat in, and electric and gas versions help air stay cleaner.
The convenience and efficiency of gas fireplaces
Direct-vent gas fireplaces are safe, easy to operate and provide efficient heat at the push of a button. Both gas and electric insert fireplaces can produce a wide range of heat, potentially serving as the primary heating source for spaces up to 1,000 square feet. However, electric insert fireplaces do not heat directly from the flame, and instead incorporate an inefficient secondary heating source to heat the space.
Gas fireplaces burn with up to a 90% efficiency rating, meaning almost no pollution. Highly efficient gas fireplaces can heat up to 1,000 square feet of living space at low cost. This means that you can turn down your thermostat and use your gas fireplace as the heat source for your most used space, lowering your utility bills.
A high-efficiency direct-vent gas fireplace uses air from outside to feed the flame, and exhausts combustion gases through a wall-mounted vent—keeping those gases out of your home. Better yet, 70% of the heat that a direct-vent gas fireplace generates remains in your home. See more gas fireplace benefits.
