These five popular gas fireplace inserts could brighten up your home on a winter’s day. Are you tired of lugging home firewood and fighting with your old drafty fireplace each winter? Gas fireplace inserts may turn that drafty disaster into a cozy home. They can be set into your existing fireplace quite easily, turning a messy traditional fireplace into an efficient, easy, clean, heat source. Below, read about the most stylish fireplace inserts that are out there this fall and where to find them.
The Cosmo Gas Insert will add a modern touch to any home. Starting at $2,600 (before installation and venting), this fireplace is designed to be amenable to any preexisting fireplace. A black glass liner reflects the flames inside the fireplace while a curved fitted glass face protects those by the fire. The perimeter can be customized with stone or glass fixtures. You can find this fireplace at Napolean Fire Places.
The Escape Fire brick Insert has a more traditional feel. A set of six or seven ceramic logs with a realistic ember glow are clearly visible through the large window at the face of the fireplace. In addition, this fireplace is very efficient with dual blower fans to circulate the hot air into the room. Starting at $2,800, this fireplace has more options than any other on the market. It also has a remote control. Several more modern facades are available to suite any home’s décor. You can find this fireplace at Napolean Fire Places.
The Grand starts at $2,300 and is completely focused on heat efficiency with a nod to style. This fireplace is one of the biggest and requires a larger preexisting fireplace to get the proper fit. The frame is built with specially formulated energy-wise metal that retains heat. Dual remote control fans operate at variable speeds and control the flow of warm air out of the fireplace. Ceramic logs and embers have a realistic feel (though not as good as the Escape Fire Brick Insert) and you can choose your style of finish. You can find this fireplace at Napolean Fire Places.
Despite its name, the supreme is designed to fit smaller fireplaces. Much like the Grand, the Supreme has similar specially formulated metal that retains heat, a dual fan to spread heat into the living space, and ceramic logs and embers to give a more traditional feel. This insert starts at $2,100 and you can have your choice of finishes. You can find this fireplace at Heat N Glo.
The most elegant of gas fireplace inserts, the Crystaline would be a great addition to your home. This fire sparkles with a glass ember bed in either clear, blue, amber, topaz, black or red that flashes with the flicker of the flames, and you can choose from four color options for the facade. A porcelain radiating panel lines the bottom to help transfer heat from the flames to your living space. A remote control can be used to control the fireplace at a distance. Even though the focus here is on style, the fireplaces are incredibly efficient. This unit is approved to work in bathrooms, living rooms, bedrooms, and mobile homes. You can find this fireplace at Heat N Glo.
