*A quick note on the differences between gas inserts and gas fireplaces. An insert is placed into an existing masonry fireplace. A gas fireplace is framed and installed directly in a wall or bump-out.
The Killington Gas Insert is a unit with a traditional look using modern technology.
A Direct Vent gas insert, the Killington has a double heat exchanger which helps retain heat from traveling up the chimney, increasing efficiency. The flame on the Killington is fully adjustable (via remote) for a high flame and high heat output or for a lower ambient flame and heat output. The fan on the Killington is also adjustable. At a preset temperature the fan comes on and then the consumer may choose the fan speed. In an area with a high rate of power outages, the Killington has an option for a milli-volt ignition system. This system requires no electricity for initial start up, but instead draws on energy created by the standing pilot. This minuscule amount of energy is used to light the flame on the unit to provide heat during an outage.
The Killington can be ordered in either Natural Gas or Propane. Heating an area of approximately 1500 sq. ft. the Killington has a BTU rating of 13,000-32,000
This insert has 3 color options; Blue-Black Enamel, Brown Enamel, and Matte Black. There is also the option of having a wall switch, three way thermostat switch, or a programmable remote control. If the glare of glass detracts from the beauty of the flame, consumers may choose to purchase the fire-screen kit which will help make the glass fade out so it would appear to be an open flame.
