Are There Gas Fireplace Choices?
Gas fireplaces offer such a variety of designs and types, you may have to look twice when your fire is burning, double checking that it really is gas. If this is the look you want, the designs out there can pretty closely emulate a natural wood fire.
On the other hand, there are other looks more on the artsy side with ceramic stones or tempered glass chips. There is an option out there for every design style and budget, and our highly trained team members are happy to assist you in any way you need.
Despite the deluge of design choices, there are still primarily three types of gas fireplaces––log sets, inserts, and built-ins. Here is a short rundown on the differences:
• Log sets. This type comes in as the least expensive of the three and is more for atmosphere than actual warmth. The set consists of ceramic logs that are deliberately arranged in your existing firebox with a gas burner. Installation is pretty basic and some are vented while others are vent-free. Check with one of our team members for more specifics if this option interests you.
• Inserts. The design of inserts is somewhat comparable to nesting dolls. Inserts are a log-and-burner set that sits inside a metal box that sits inside another metal box. These are tucked into your existing fireplace. There is a gap between the two boxes holding air that is warmed, which then radiates into your room. These also can be vented or not vented, and there is a little more to their installation and pricing than with log sets. Our professionals would be happy to talk with you if this choice sounds like a good fit for you.
• Built-ins. Built-ins are pretty close in design to inserts because they too are a box within a box. But these do not need an existing fireplace or chimney, so they can be installed anywhere. They come in designs for either vented or vent-free like the other two types, each having its own set of advantages and disadvantages. These also produce heat like the inserts do and require a bit more for installation, both in effort and money. If this interests you, be sure to speak with one of our team members about details.
