Types of Direct Vent Inserts

Gas Inserts

Natural gas fireplace Inserts are a popular choice for homeowners because they are convenient and efficient.

Gas Inserts are known for their clean-burning technology, which minimizes emissions and maintains indoor air quality. Additionally, many models have realistic flame effects that look like a traditional wood fire, adding a cozy feel to your home.

If you love the experience of a real wood fire, Wood Inserts are an excellent choice. These inserts allow you to enjoy the crackling sound and natural smell of burning wood while maximizing the efficiency of your existing fireplace. Wood Inserts are designed with advanced combustion technology to maximize heat output and minimize smoke and ash production. They also have large windows so you can watch the flames. These come in both ventless fireplace insert options as well as vent options.

Electric Inserts

Electric Inserts offer a versatile and low-maintenance option for homeowners. These inserts use electricity to produce heat and a realistic flame effect, so you don’t need to worry about venting or storing fuel. Electric Inserts are easy to install and can be placed in any room, making them perfect for homes without an existing fireplace. They also come with adjustable heat settings and can be operated with a remote control, providing convenience and comfort.
