Upgrading an Outdated Insert to a Modern Insert (Retrofit)

Style changes over time, meaning the fireplace that was installed when your home was built might be outdated. By retrofitting your fireplace, you avoid extensive remodeling costs, but enjoy:

Converting a Wood Fireplace to a Gas Insert

Wood fireplaces are appealing, but maintenance and upkeep can become a burden. They’re also not very efficient. Choosing to upgrade to an insert provides many of the same benefits and more, including:

  • Cleaner burning
  • Less maintenance
  • Easier to operate and maintain

Also, city homes in Denver have gas lines ready to install from the street, making the conversion an easier and popular option.

Replacing an Older Gas Log Set with an Insert Solution

As the name implies, gas inserts are used to replace gas log sets. These inserts can be placed in a variety of fireplaces, including masonry and factory units. They’re better than old gas logs for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Convenience: You can control the flame with a remote control.
  • Cost effective: Less energy is wasted.
  • Add to the appeal and value of your home

Coal Fireplace Conversion

Many of Denver’s older homes have drafty (and unstable) coal fireplaces that aren’t energy efficient. Home and Hearth Outfitters worked with Enviro to develop a solution to bring these fireplaces into modern times.

The result of this collaboration is the Q1 from Enviro, specially designed for retrofitting coal fireplaces with a gas fireplace insert that has the shallow depth of typical of coal burning fireplaces. The Q1 is easy to install and offers a variety of classic styles to match your home. The Q1 is also adjustable for better air circulation and BTUs so you can warm your home with the perfect amount of heat.
