Fireplace inserts replace the firebox in your existing masonry fireplace. They’re the best way to increase your fireplace’s efficiency.
A ventless insert works similarly to a vent free gas log set. If you’re considering vent free gas logs, but your fireplace could use a bit of a cosmetic facelift, then a ventless insert is a great solution.
A direct vent insert is a sealed system, so it completely eliminates the heat loss of other fireplace types. It exhausts gas outside your home and then brings in fresh air. If you’re looking for supplemental heat and you don’t want to lose any heat from the rest of your home, a direct vent insert is perfect.
