Convert a Fireplace to Gas

Converting your wood-burning fireplace to natural gas is a great idea. All you’ll have to do is flip a switch or touch a remote and you’re warm and cozy. No more hauling wood, getting smoke in your eyes, or cleaning up ashes.

More Advantages of Gas Fireplace Inserts:

  • Operating Costs: Your savings depend on the amount of time you use your fireplace. The average cost of a therm (100,000 BTU) of gas in the Twin Cities has been about $ .50. Therefore, the cost to operate a 25,000 BTU fireplace for one hour is only about 12 cents!
  • Efficiency: Most gas fireplaces burn with a thermal efficiency of 70 percent or higher. Efficiency will vary depending on venting applications.
  • Beauty & Customization: Gas fireplace inserts from Kozy Heat have a giant assortment of glass media and optional accents, giving your fireplace a look that compliments and enhances its surroundings. It's easy to change things up in the future, with new glass media, logs or lighting accents.
  • Gas Fireplace Heat Output: : A fireplace with a 21,000 BTU input, at about 70 percent efficiency, can heat up to 1,000 square feet in the average home. The amount of heat a gas fireplace generates is dependent on the type of glass used and the BTU of the fireplace.
  • Heat During a Power Outage: Our fireplace inserts have standing pilot lights that don't require electricity. You can use your gas fireplace as an auxiliary heating source during power outages.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Natural gas is the “most environmentally clean” fossil fuel and doesn’t require expensive, pollution-causing processing.

FREE in-home visits are available within the Twin Cities and select areas of greater Minnesota. The free consultation helps you determine the best gas fireplace or insert to fit your needs and décor.
