The Gas Fireplaces Guelph and Surrounding Communities Choose First
An efficient and safe way to take the chill out of winter nights and invite snuggling and quality time by the fire, a gas fireplace also quickly heats up a room. It often serves as a focal point for a family room and make an uninviting and chilly basement a sanctuary for gathering together.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF
Here’s a rundown of some of the most popular:
- Log inserts – A log insert is an artificial gas-burning log that is installed into a pre-existing wood-burning fireplace. The log insert does not provide any useable heat. This is a good option when you have a wood-burning fireplace that you no longer want to actually use but don’t want to get rid of.
- Fireplace inserts – A fireplace insert consists of a fully enclosed gas fireplace that is installed into a pre-existing wood-burning fireplace. This type of fireplace provides enough heat to warm an average-sized living area (25 000 to 40 000 BTU output).
- Built-in fireplaces – The built-in gas fireplace is a self-contained fireplace that does not require a pre-existing fireplace structure. Built-in gas fireplaces are an efficient way to heat even a large living area. Although the actual fireplace itself is a complete unit, it must be framed within a box, called the surround. The surround is then finished in a way that complements the room.
- Stand-alone fireplaces – These look more like stoves than fireplaces. Some are styled much like the old-fashioned cast-iron or enamel wood-burning stoves with attractive metal moldings. Unlike wood-burning stoves, stand-alone fireplaces are efficient and charming.
