Gas Fireplaces

Upgrade your home’s ambiance and warmth with the convenience of natural gas and propane fireplaces. These units can provide inexpensive heat and create a cozy atmosphere with a simple switch or remote control. Plus, they serve as a reliable backup heat source during power outages.

To determine the right type of gas fireplace for your needs, it’s important to understand the different categories available. Keep reading for a comprehensive breakdown of the main installation scenarios and appliance types. This knowledge is essential in helping you make an informed decision when selecting a new fireplace.

Built-in Gas Fireplaces

Built-in propane and natural gas fireplaces offer endless possibilities in terms of shape, size, and style, ranging from modern to traditional designs. Although these “Zero Clearance” fireplaces still have clearance rules to follow, they are built into walls and often installed during home construction. Alternatively, you can also add them later with some framing, drywall, and finishing.

Once installed, you usually tile or stone in built-in fireplaces, and removing them requires removing the finishing as well. These fireplaces have the largest heat and price range. They can be very small or very large, with most installations falling in between.

Compared to a fireplace insert or stove, a built-in fireplace unit requires a more significant installation process. It is often part of a larger home improvement project. Furthermore, after installation, finishing work such as painting, tiling, or stonework is still necessary. While built-in installs typically take one day, they can occasionally require two days, and there is still finishing work to be done once the fireplace is fully installed.

Gas Insert Fireplace

Upgrade your existing wood fireplace to a cleaner and more efficient gas fireplace with a propane or natural gas fireplace insert. These inserts fit into an existing wood fireplace opening, making installation relatively straightforward. Additionally, the new venting uses the existing chimney, eliminating the need for extensive renovation. Consequently, the heat output is far superior to any open-burning masonry fireplace.

By using a gas fireplace insert, you can seal up your inefficient masonry fireplace and stop drafts while adding a powerful and efficient heat source. Moreover, these inserts are cost-effective and help maintain a beautiful ambiance, even when not in use.

Gas fireplace inserts heat your home during the colder months and help cool it down during the summer by sealing off the fireplace opening. Most installations are completed in just one day, making it a quick and easy process to upgrade your fireplace.

Freestanding Gas Stove

Gas stoves, also known as freestanding fireplaces, add warmth and coziness to your home with minimal mess and minor loss of floor space. Furthermore, these units offer extreme flexibility in venting, often providing multiple options for each unit. For instance, you can vent them up old wood stove chimneys, directly out an outside wall, or up through the attic and roof.

In addition, from extremely modern to traditional, gas stoves come in a wide range of styles to suit any taste. They are an easy and versatile option to add to an already finished home. Moreover, most gas stove installations can be completed in just one day.
