Looking for a way to cut down on your heating bills and add comfort to a room? Transform your wood-burning traditional fireplace into a natural gas fireplace! If you have natural gas at your home and if you have a wood fireplace already built-in, it is a no brainer. The gas fireplace insert can vent through your existing chimney.
The key is to make sure you’re purchasing the natural gas “insert” with a blower and not just gas logs. You want the cold air to be closed off when not in use and you want the blower to maximize the heat circulation in the room.
The best use for a gas fireplace insert is for zone heating. This allows you to turn on your gas fireplace and turn down your heat in the rest of the home. This will cut down on your energy bills when you reduce the heat in the entire home and just heat the room you spend the most time in.

Your current wood fireplace is an inefficient, messy way to heat your home so stop cutting or buying wood. Just turn on the gas fireplace insert and enjoy the heat and savings!
