Gas Fireplace Invites Gathering Place in Your Home
Fireplaces have long held a special place in the hearts of Canadians. They remain a gathering spot for family and friends, a symbol of romanticism and comfort. Visually attractive, clean burning and energy efficient gas burning fireplaces are so popular that, it is difficult to sell a new or existing home without one. Gas fireplaces can be installed as a completely new fireplace or as an insert converting an existing wood fireplace to gas. Gas fireplaces have increased in popularity over the past few years, and the attraction of owning a gas fireplace lies in the following:
- The convenience of an on/off switch and an ever-present fuel supply.
- The Cleanliness factor (gas fireplaces generate no mess in terms of ashes, wood chips and bark).
- The elimination of chimney cleaning.
- The safety of sealed combustion units, which offer little chance for toxic combustion gases to spill into the room.
- The environmental benefits as compared with those of a conventional wood fireplace
What to look for?
Depending on the size of your room and how important the fireplace is to serve as a heat source, you’ll want to consider total BTU output, good radiant heat, and controllable turndown for maximum performance when purchasing a new gas fireplace.
Got a special look you‘re hoping to achieve? Our Gas Fireplace Specialists can help guide you in the right direction. We carry a wide range of styles from contemporary to traditional and everything in between.
Depending on your needs, today’s gas fireplaces come with a wide variety of options including wireless remote control, energy efficiencies, and log arrangements.
After doing this for over a decade, we’ve mastered the process required to add the warm ambiance of a gas fireplace into your home. From start to finish, there are four steps:
Step One: Framing & Rough
Before you can start framing in the new fireplace, you’re going to need to do some planning to know where the gas line will run, where the venting will go and to make sure all clearances are met. We can pass this information along to your contractor or your architect if you are building a new home.
Step Two: Gas Line, Fireplace & Venting Installation
Now it’s the exciting part! We’ll have our licensed gas fitter to run the line to your fireplace. We’ll also then install the fireplace and venting components, connecting everything for a seamless installation.
Step Three: Test & Run
With the installation now complete, your gas fireplace will be tested by our installer onsite to assure the unit is running in good order and all installation codes have been followed.
Step Four: Finishing, Mantle Installation & Completion
With the required permit in place, you can now enclose the fireplace area to suit your tastes. We can recommend mantle finishers who do great work and certainly don’t mind passing them along to you.
