Gas Fireplaces and Stoves

George's Tips Gas fireplace inserts and gas stoves produce safe, clean and reliable heat! These units:

  • can be operated with a switch or a thermostat,
  • unlike most furnaces many such units can be operated during a power outage,
  • can be used as part of your home's heating system,
  • produce less air pollution than wood heat,
  • require very little service or cleaning, and
  • they are usually less expensive than a wood burning appliance.

Gas fireplaces can and are being used as the primary heat source in many homes. For example, they are often used in the living rooms and 'great rooms' of town houses. In such applications, other types of zone heating can be used the rest of the home.
