  Our Gas Inserts

A new gas insert will transform your fireplace.  Imagine lighting a fire with the remote control from your recliner! You’ll enjoy a fire every night!  Cricket on the Hearth installs gas inserts from Kozy Heat, Mendota and Jotul.  They offer a wide array of beautiful fronts to decorate your room with.  Mendota has forty faces to choose from including black, copper, chrome, gold and brass designs.

The logs and ember beds are so realistic and the heat so comforting you’ll turn it on every night.  You can also design a modern insert with a bed of glass media or ceramic stones.

The energy savings from zone-heating with a gas insert are tremendous and today’s inserts can be thermostatically controlled by the remote.


Whether you choose wood, gas, pellet, or electric the range of hearth products and fuels has never been greater. We have chosen Jotul, Blaze King and Enerzone stoves to provide top or the line quality to our customers.
Make no mistake, that beautiful fireplace or stove you’ve always wanted will provide much more than a romantic atmosphere (although it does that very well)! Consider it as primary survival gear, to heat your home, cook some food, shed some light and keep your pipes from freezing in a power out. Many of our customers enjoy using their stoves as a primary heat source to avoid the utility company’s high rates for gas, electric and fuel oil. We even heat our store with our wood burning displays!
