Nothing beats a warm crackling fire in the winter, but fussing with logs, firestarters, newspapers, ash and soot is enough to keep anyone from enjoying their masonry fireplace. If you’re one of those homeowners neglecting their fireplace because of the hassle involved, gas fireplace inserts can save you a ton of trouble and money.
A gas fireplace inserts is essentially a stove fitted to your existing masonry fireplace so that you can have a real fire at the flip of a switch. Besides the obvious benefit of convenience, there are several other reasons you might opt for a gas fireplace insert in your home.
