Gas Insert: Valor G3.5 - Evergreen, CO

Gas Inserts & Gas log sets

Gas inserts are designed to transform older, open masonry fireplaces from inefficient, decorative appliances into highly-efficient systems that can heat large areas of your home.  Unlike fireplaces, which are framed into a wall, inserts must be placed in an existing fireplace.  Gas inserts are designed for the front of the insert to sit flush with the opening of the original masonry fireplace. All gas inserts are direct vent—they use a two chamber vent pipe to bring combustion air down into the firebox and take exhaust back up and out through the chimney; this means that combustion air is not drawn from the living environment and no soot or carbon monoxide can enter your home. The input rating on gas inserts ranges from 20,000-40,000 BTU/hour.  As with all hearth appliances, the ceramic glass on the front a gas insert radiates the largest percentage of heat into the room but additional heat is available from a heat-circulating blower system.

Unlike gas inserts, which have a sealed firebox, gas logs are an open-faced appliance designed to be decorative instead of heat-producing. They are available in two general styles—logs that look charred and those that look un-burnt.  Gas logs can be operated manually or with a remote control.
