A Direct-Vent Fireplace Insert turns your existing wood-burning fireplace into an efficient gas-fired heat source.  Direct-Vent Fireplace Inserts are classified as zone heating appliances. Zone heating is inherently more efficient than your existing wood-burning fireplace or your central furnace.

Rushmore fireplace inserts feature the TruFlame system – a combination of technology and aesthetics to create realistic flames and a glowing ember bed, mimicking a natural wood fire. Available in two sizes, 30 and 35, these inserts turn your wood-burning fireplace into an attractive and efficient focal point. The multifunction remote operates as a conventional thermostat, a Smart Thermostat – which modulates flame height as the room reaches the desired temperature, or as a manual control. The remote also operates the included accent light and blower.

If you are looking for a high-quality, durable insert then Empire has what you need. The Empire 35" Rushmore Direct Vent Gas Insert uses TruFlame technology, making it easy to light at the touch of a button. The remote control customizes the flame height, lighting, and variable-speed blower so you can get your fireplace insert at just the right setting for you. This insert comes in your choice of natural, or propane gas and comes with everything you need to get your house warm and toasty this season.
