Can I Get Financial Assistance to Upgrade My Old Wood Fireplace?

Utah has a Wood Stove and Fireplace Conversion Assistance Program designed to help homeowners upgrade wood fireplaces to natural gas or propane devices. Eligible homeowners can receive rebates ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 if they live in designated northern counties. Approved counties are Cache, Davis, Salt Lake, Utah, and Weber, and sections of Box Elder and Tooele.

Is it Easy to Change From a Wood to a Gas Fireplace?

It sure can be! After removing the wood-burning fixtures, an experienced gas fitter can set a fireplace insert in the exact location. Of course, there’s more to do behind the scenes, such as connecting to gas lines, meeting building codes, and ensuring safety standards are met. Still, you can leave that to the installers. All you need to do is choose the gas fireplace insert.

For your gas fireplace conversion needs in Salt Lake City, UT, and the surrounding areas, Croft Fireplace can manage the whole process for you.

I Don’t Have Access to Natural Gas. Are There Propane Gas Fireplace Inserts?

Yes, there certainly are. We have a range of fireplace inserts specifically designed to be fueled by propane. Contact us for more information on the propane models we stock. They are comparable in design and features to our natural gas models.

What Features Should I Be Looking for in a Gas Fireplace Insert?

The features of your hearth should be chosen to meet your home design and heating requirements. However, here are some of the most requested features for gas fireplace inserts:

  • Glass fronts to view fire effects and keep children safe from naked flames.
  • A range of realistic log and flame settings.
  • Remote controls.
  • Colors and fireplace surround materials that match or complement room styles.
