Modern Inserts Help to Accent Contempory Style .
If your living room is a few decades behind the times, choosing a sleek and modern gas insert can make a world of difference. Gas inserts create a roaring fire behind a completely closed off glass screen, creating a clean face look with no louvers or old fashioned fireplace ephemera. With most products, you can choose from a few different looks for your firebox and panel to synch up with your living room décor.

Inserts Save You Money.
When you switch from gas logs to gas insert, you’ll notice the increased efficiency of the gas insert on your gas bill. Save that money to and use it on something to drink by the fireside!
