Gas-Burning Fireplaces, Stoves, Inserts & Gas Logs


When choosing a new appliance for your home, you’ll need to consider your budget, space, desired use, and other factors.

A gas-burning unit can offer a mix of benefits, and your CSIA-certified Home Safe Hearth & Chimney, Inc. technician can help you figure out whether gas is right for your needs. The gas in gas-burning units will usually be natural gas, though propane is also sometimes used.

Benefits Of A Gas Unit

  • Easy maintenance – Part of the convenience of a gas unit comes in its maintenance. Although annual maintenance by a CSIA-certified technician is recommended to ensure that your unit is functioning safely and efficiently, you won’t have a lot of the regular maintenance that comes with a wood-burning unit, since gas burns much cleaner and doesn’t leave behind the same soot and ash. During your annual inspection, a Home Safe Hearth & Chimney, Inc. technician will check your gas unit’s pilot light, burner, venting, and more. But your simple fire-to-fire maintenance will usually consist of turning the unit on and off.
  • Flexibility in location, size and style – You have a lot of options with a prefabricated gas unit. With their well-insulated construction and various venting options, a Home Safe Hearth & Chimney, Inc. technician can install a unit in a corner, along a wall, or even in the center of a room — basically anywhere a gas line can be safely connected. You can choose between units that are open on one side, with a more traditional look, or open on two, three or four sides. And depending on the amount of space you need to heat, you’ll be able to choose between a variety of sizes as well.
  • Efficient, clean, convenient heating – Without the effort of building a fire, gas units generally come on with the push of a button, and provide even, efficient heat. Many units even have thermostats, which allow homeowners to set and maintain the desired temperature. In addition to being convenient – gas units are green! The EPA states that natural gas and propane units emit less air pollutants than wood- or pellet-burning fireplaces and stoves.

Types of gas-burning units

  • Gas fireplaces – Units that are built into the hearth, often surrounded by a mantel
  • Gas stoves – Free-standing units that come in a variety of sizes and styles, from traditional looking cast-iron to brightly colored and sleek, contemporary, steel stoves
  • Gas Inserts – Units that can be retrofitted into an existing fireplace if you want a more efficient unit or need to replace a prefabricated fireplace that’s come to the end of its service life
  • Gas logs – Designed to look like wood logs, gas logs have gas burners built inside, and offer the convenience and efficiency of gas with the look of a real wood fire

As with any home heating appliance, in order to ensure that your gas-burning unit is safely and efficiently installed, you’ll want to hire a certified technician to do the job. Home Safe Hearth & Chimney, Inc. technicians are all CSIA– and/or NFI-certified.
