Gas Fireplace Inserts | The ILLUME Series

in Design Ideas by Roxie Leigh

Gas Fireplace Inserts are Both Efficient & Elegant

A high-efficiency gas fireplace insert is the easiest way to update a drafty old wood burning masonry fireplace.

A gas fireplace insert is a sealed firebox that fits directly into an existing masonry fireplace and uses the chimney to support venting. Opting to go with a fireplace insert saves both time and money because removing a masonry fireplace is a big renovation project.

Fireplace inserts produce more heat and use less fuel than their wood burning counterparts, therefore they are much more efficient. The ILLUME Series meets the requirements for efficiency rebates.

A gas fireplace insert also does away with the chopping labor and messy clean up of traditional wood burning fireplaces. Meanwhile, a gorgeous flame, on-demand, at the click of a button, means you can spend more time enjoying your fireplace.

Benefits of a Fireplace Insert

There are many benefits to installing a gas fireplace insert. First, sealing an existing masonry chimney can eliminate drafts and greatly increase heating efficiency. As a result, a fireplace insert keeps your home warmer in winter and cooler in the summer.

Most importantly, more of the heat generated by a gas insert is directed inside the home instead of out the chimney, which is both more heat and fuel efficient. In other words, the ILLUME insert has efficiency ratings so good, fans are optional!

Easy Cleaning & Service

In addition to being ultra efficient, the ILLUME Series was created with serviceability in mind. Clear access to the control system makes routine maintenance and service easy. You also won’t need any specialty tools to perform these routine tasks.

Design Versatility

Another benefit of an insert is versatility of design. Montigo’s gas fireplace inserts are flexible, so they work in spaces that are traditional, contemporary, or somewhere in between.

A gas fireplace insert is not “one-size-fits-all” though. To determine the correct fit, measure the height, width, and depth of your existing masonry fireplace. For accurate depth, measure from the back wall to the front of the opening.

Once you have chosen the size and accessories to create your perfect gas fireplace insert, it’s time for design. Style your new fireplace insert with a classic logset or a sleek, sparkling bed of modern glass available in a range of color choices.

Select Your Fireplace Insert Style

Montigo’s fireplace inserts are versatile enough to work in any room. Slick and modern, classic and cozy, or a mixture of the two for a transitional look. Overall, the ILLUME is at home in any environment.
