Gas Fireplace Inserts are an Efficient Way to Lower Your Heating Bill – Providence, RI

Joseph Coupal - Friday, February 14, 2014

If you heat your home with oil or propane, it has been a tough winter for you. With temperatures well below average, and the late in the season snow, you are most likely anxious for the winter to end. If you have natural gas in your home, you can heat your home more efficiently without replacing your oil furnace and tank.

Adding a gas fireplace insert to your home supplements your home heating and gives you oil heat a break. A new gas fireplace insert cost far less than  a new furnace, and it can dramatically decrease your heating bills. Gas inserts can also acomodate any style decor, from traditional to modern and everything in between.

Everyone loves to enjoy sitting in front of a roaring fire. And nothing compares to the efficiency of a gas fireplace insert. They are also a cleaner burning option than wood and very easy to use. You may have an open wood burning fireplace, so how do you turn it to gas? A plumber runs a gas line to your open hearth, and a gas fireplace insert is easily installed.  A gas fireplace insert slides directly in your present fireplace and is connected to the gas line.

Energy savings is the biggest reason that more and more customers are looking at gas inserts. A gas fireplace insert fits snugly inside your existing fireplace. There are plenty of ready- made fireplace inserts that fit into existing open hearths. After they are installed, the change to the look and feel of your home is dramatic. Gas fireplaces light with the push of a button. There is nothing like coming home and turning on the fire to help you relax and get warm.

It is not too late to start heating your home more efficiently. If you heat with oil, but have natural gas in the house, you have numerous options.  In fact, by adding a gas stove or gas fireplace insert to help heat your home, you can reduce the price of your oil bill by quite a bit. Heating with natural gas is less expensive than oil.

In fact, a new gas stove or gas fireplace insert will be more efficient than your furnace. So heating your home with gas is more cost effective. And, if your home has a natural gas line already, you are halfway there already.

At The Fireplace Showcase, we have many customers that come see us about heating with wood or pellets. That works for many folks. But once we talk about their home and their lifestyle and we find out they have a natural gas line already running to their home, they usually go for a gas stove or gas fireplace insert.

Natural Gas is the least expensive fuel, and no work. At the same time, you can reduce your home heating bills during this frigid and snowy winter. Gas stoves and inserts are controlled by a switch or a remote. You want a fire burning in your hearth? Push the button. They can also be controlled with a thermostat, so you can have more constant even heating. No wood to stack, no pellets to haul in. And natural gas is economical.
