– Gas fireplaces generally cost less to operate than wood burning and pellet stoves. If you use gas logs, which are an option with most modern installations, the fuel usage will be even lower because it does not require a blower to run.
The cost of using a gas fireplace depends on the size and type of unit installed. A typical home installation can be done for $300 to $500, while larger commercial projects may require more extensive work that costs several thousand dollars. The size and layout of your building also determines how much it will take to install or upgrade an existing fireplace.
