Put the days of chopping wood and cleaning out ashes behind you when you install a gas insert in your fireplace. With a gas insert you can transform your messy wood fireplace into a hassle-free, efficient heating appliance. The convenience and special features that gas inserts offer make them an obvious choice for many homeowners. The luxury of controlling your fireplace with a thermostat or remote control will make it a pleasure to use your gas fireplace any day.

We may not have the biggest selection, but there are plenty of reasons we’ve become the favorite hearth store of Fairfield County – and our knowledgeable experts and superb customer service are just to name a few.
Low Maintenance & Efficient
Both natural gas and liquid propane (LP) gas inserts require very little maintenance besides an annual checkup to ensure they continue to function properly. Unlike wood inserts that produce soot and creosote, gas inserts are clean burning. You won’t need to have your chimney regularly cleaned or worry about harmful emissions. Vent free gas inserts burn so efficiently that no vent pipe is needed. Direct vent gas inserts only require a small pipe that vents to the outside. Whether you choose a vent free or direct vent gas insert, you won’t have to labor to start a fire in the hearth again. With the flip of a switch or touch of a button your fireplace will come to life.
While traditional fireplaces allow the majority of heat to be absorbed by the masonry or to escape up the chimney, gas inserts circulate heat throughout the room. They can have up to an 80% efficiency rating. Their high efficiency means that every dollar you spend on fueling your fireplace will go further. You can comfortably zone heat areas of your home from one room to a whole floor with the right fireplace insert.
The additional features that are available for gas inserts appeal to many New England homeowners. You can set the right mood for a romantic night in or create the perfect ambiance for a social gathering with a remote control operated gas insert that allows you to determine the flame height, light accents and more. Since you can control the heat output, you may be more inclined to use your fireplace throughout the year instead of just during the chilly months of winter. Though features vary from model to model, you are sure to find a gas insert with the convenient advantages you are hoping for in a style that complements your home décor.
Whether your goal is to improve the appearance and convenience of your fireplace or bring down your heating bills, investing in a gas fireplace insert is a wise choice. It is important to know that some manufacturers’ warranties are actually voided if the insert is not installed by a certified technician. Be sure to have it professionally installed to ensure the safety of your family and use of your warranty. Our friendly staff would be happy to help you set up an installation appointment. We can also explain the technical aspects of each insert that we offer along with the customizations that are available so that you can select the best insert for your home.
