Costs for Operating a Gas Fireplace or Insert
More than a half a century ago, gas fireplaces came along and changed the landscape of hearth products forever. They made fires convenient and quick – eliminating the need to haul wood and spend time starting and feeding fires. They also made the experience of having fires inexpensive.
Now you can find out just how inexpensive it is to enjoy fires with a gas fireplace. And it’s super easy. All you need to know is one of two things: either the BTUs of your fireplace or insert, or you can choose from a list of Heatilator models. The Gas Appliance Cost Calculator does the work for you, calculating approximately what it costs per hour to run the fireplace or insert.
The bottom line? It’s really inexpensive to run a gas fireplace or insert. For instance, the popular Heatilator Novus nXt costs a mere .32 cents per hour* to operate. So, enjoying a fire for an entire evening can cost as little as $2. That’s a small price to pay for the ambience and warmth that will fill your home.
