    Propane Fireplace Inserts

    On a cold winter's evening, there's nothing better than curling up on the couch with a good book while a cozy fire burns in the fireplace nearby. And with a propane fireplace insert or natural gas insert, you can start that fire with a literal flip of a switch! Propane gas fireplace inserts are designed to be installed in your current masonry fireplace, so you don't even have to clear out an extra space. Some of the most popular models here on are the Empire Medium Innsbrook Vent-Free Gas Fireplace Insert and the Napoleon GI3600 Natural Vent Gas Fireplace Insert.

    Can 36,000 BTU vent-free propane logs be installed, where 20,000 BTU natural gas logs were taken out?
    1 Answer
    The log set can be installed so long as a propane gas supply is available with a minimum inlet pressure that is suitable for the propane log set.

    I need to purchase two items for two existing fireplaces that we are having propane run to: Fireplace 1 - We are going to burn real logs in this fireplace, but I would like to have the propane starter here, so that I can put the logs and light the propane starter and once the logs are on fire we will turn this off. I am taking care of running the piping to the fireplace but I need everything else required. width is approximately 30in Fireplace 2 - This was historically a wood burning fireplace , but we are going to convert it to have have this be fake logs. The width is 23in. I do not need a remote and am fine having a pilot going / or turning the key and lighting it with a match every time we want it on. Once again, we are having the propane pipe run to the fireplace, but I need all other parts required.

    For the first fireplace, our Dante Combination Log Lighter & Universal Mixer - 17" - Propane will work well. Dante manufactures a quality product and the multiple taps on the air mixer can accommodate different supply pipe orientations. For the second fireplace, a refractory log set with a basic manual pilot will work. Such an option is the Real Fyre 16" Golden Oak Vented Propane Gas Logs Set with Safety Pilot Kit. This set is technically 1 inch over size for your application, but it can be brought forward in the fireplace opening slightly to accommodate the difference.

    I have a propane fireplace that has a large glass front. I am looking to replace glass front with doors to make it easier for hubby and I to operate (we need to be able to access pilot to turn off during summer). Model is a Temco GLD500-1P. Do you have parts for this type of fireplace?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, this is a direct vent type of fireplace which requires that the solid glass front be in place for operation. While door overlays are often produced that give the appearance of glass doors, the solid glass pane behind the doors is left in place. This is one of the only disadvantages of direct vent fireplaces, as the pane of glass can indeed be difficult to remove when lighting the pilot for the beginning of the season.

    I want to covert a wood burning fireplace to propane. What do I need to do this?
    1 Answer
    There are a couple of ways to go about this type of conversion. For heating purposes, a propane fireplace insert would be the better way to go. The insert can be slid into the opening and the chimney lined to accommodate intake air and exhaust for the system. Another option is to use propane logs, which can be installed for decorative purposes, while providing limited heat.

    from ME asked:
    April 25, 2013
    My living room is very small. Can I eliminate this free-standing propane gas stove (see picture) and put in a small gas insert (I see you have a small one that is 13") in the existing chimney, which is about 20-22" wide. The chimney was, I believe, originally built for a wood burning stove that was later converted to propane. I envision the gas insert being vent free with doors that open, or maybe closed with a fan if that is a better way to get the heat into the room.
    1 Answer
    As long as the dimensions of the fireplace do indeed meet the minimum required by our gas inserts, you could certainly install a unit into the opening. Most of our inserts do come with a circulating fan as standard to increase convection, but do not have doors as an option. By nature, these gas inserts will operate with a fixed safety screen in place. However, if you can provide exact measurements of the opening, we will be able to give you better information.

    Will this insert smoke and soot my walls?
    1 Answer
    This chances of this happening are very low. If a direct vent fireplace insert is used, this could not occur, as the unit will be completely sealed with a pane of glass. All combustion air comes from the outdoors and exhaust gases are vented to the outdoors as well. Vent free inserts are the only type that can cause a slight discoloration of the walls in a room. This will only occur if the item is used in a dusty room over an extended period of time. Yearly service of these inserts is also required to ensure that they will continue to burn cleanly.

    We have a Heat N Glo direct vent propane fireplace insert that is having problems with keeping the pilot light lit. Do you do service on the Heat N Glo models and can we replace the guts of the fireplace without replacing the whole box, logs etc?
    1 Answer
    We are a retailer of several brands of hearth products, however we do not offer repair services at this time. It would be necessary to contact a local Heat N Glo dealer in your area or a qualified hearth technician for service. Heat N Glo is not a brand of fireplace we sell, so I cannot speak to the upgradeability of the unit. Some models can indeed use a new burner and valve module which will replace the original. However, many units are only listed for use with the original internals and the unit must be replaced in its entirety, should you wish to change it.

    I have a metal prefab fireplace now containing a propane supplied log set. Does your company make an insert for such fireplaces? If so, how can I contact your company to discuss buying one?
    1 Answer
    It is possible to use a fireplace insert in some models of prefab fireplaces, but it will depend on the brand and model of the prefab unit itself. If you would like to give us a call at 1-800-203-1642, we can determine if your unit would be suitable for an insert.

    Propane fires can be lit in an instant-they literally light at the touch of a button. What an incredible convenience! No more wrestling with kindling and matches. Now you simply turn on your fireplace and instantly enjoy dancing flames! And since propane is so economical, the fire can be lit every day. In fact, your propane fire may produce enough heat to warm your entire living area! Many inserts include a blower to help with heat circulation. Even clean-up is a breeze with propane fireplace inserts! Instead of sweeping out ashes and wiping soot off of every surface, there are a few specific parts that need to be cleaned occasionally. Your owner's manual will give specific instructions for cleaning, but the task is not nearly as labor intensive as cleaning an insert that burns wood or coal. At, we recognize that you're making a sacrifice to upgrade your fireplace. That's why we offer some of the best prices on our items! And with our large selection, you're sure to find products that meet your needs and don't break your budget. You can even enjoy free shipping with most of our items!
