We install fireplace inserts for a wide range of residential and commercial customers who prefer an ambient fireplace with low maintenance over traditional wood-burning fireplaces.

Our Waukesha-based fireplace installers can install gas or electric fireplace inserts in both indoor and outdoor fireplaces, as well as indoor/outdoor see-through fireplaces. We are highly skilled at installing or replacing fireplace inserts in various types of fireplaces, including marble, granite, wood, brick and stone.


Why Would You Want A Fireplace Insert?

Wood burning fireplaces are great, but let's face it: they're a hassle and a half. Besides having to procure seasoned wood, you have to monitor the fire while it's burning and you have to clean up a hearth full of ashes when the fire is out. On top of that, you inevitably get a smoky smell in your living room.

Perhaps the biggest hassle of all, though, is that you have to plan on being home until the fire has gone out. There's no lighting a fire, getting it going, then deciding you're going to go out to do your grocery shopping. You absolutely cannot leave a fire unattended and you cannot just turn it off. Similarly, you can't turn in for the night with the fire still blazing.

Ah, but with a gas or electric fireplace insert you CAN! And that's precisely the appeal. Or at least part of the appeal. If you want to enjoy a fire while you're watching TV and then go to bed, it's as simple as turning it off. No worries about a fire starting while you sleep. And you don't have to buy seasoned firewood and lug it into your living room every time you want a fire.

Another great thing about a gas or electric fireplace: You're not losing most of the heat through your chimney, like you do with a wood burning fireplace. You get a solid 18,500 to 35,000 BTUs--more than enough to heat a medium to large sized room. And the cost works out to a very reasonable 37 cents per hour.

In years past, gas fireplaces were sorely lacking in the visual appeal offered by wood burning fireplaces. Today, though, gas fireplaces not only rival wood-burning fireplaces, they also offer unique interpretations of it. Besides remarkably realistic looking logs, there are also gas fireplaces available with stones or glass beads.

Pros and Cons of Gas Fireplace Inserts

Two Types of Fireplace Inserts

Wood Inserts

Wood fireplace inserts allow you to burn firewood, while still conforming to EPA standards for a clean burning heat source. Unlike an open-burning fireplace, a wood insert doesn’t suck the warm air in the room up the chimney. They are easy to install in an existing wood-burning fireplace, and because they include a firebox installation which is much more cost-effective than rebuilding an existing fireplace in disrepair.

Gas Inserts

Gas fireplaces work well for both new construction and for retrofitting into an existing wood-burning fireplace. The convenience of being able to enjoy the warmth and glow of a fire at the flip of a switch is the most appealing feature of gas inserts. You can also adjust the temperature output. The realism of the gas log sets available today is amazing, but you can also choose from more modern glass or stone firebeds. There are direct vent gas fireplaces, up vent fireplaces (vertical venting to the roof) and vent-free prefab fireplaces. Per Wisconsin law, the vent-free type can only be installed in homes built prior to 1980.
