Gas Fireplace Installation: Enjoy Your Fireplace

Many people enjoy relaxing in front of a fire, but are unwilling to put in the time and energy necessary to properly and safely maintain a traditional fireplace. Luckily for the casual fireplace enthusiast, gas fireplace installation is a relatively easy process, allowing you to enjoy some quality time in front of the fire without the hassle.

Gas fireplaces come in an assortment of styles, finishes and styles, allowing you to pick the perfect fireplace to complement your home. For those who embrace the aesthetic of the plain gas fireplace, options exist that forgo gas fireplace logs and just show the gas fire.

Other varieties exist that are meant to replicate traditional fireplaces. If you’re flashing back to your great aunt’s wholly unrealistic gas fireplace, there’s no need to panic. Criticism of old gas fireplaces with plastic looking gas fireplace logs and bright blue flames have driven the industry to create incredibly realistic gas fireplaces.

From flickering orange flames, to glowing coals and embers, it’s hard for the casual observer to tell the difference between gas and traditional fireplaces. Gas fireplace logs have especially evolved, perfectly split and dark around the edges, effectively replicating their natural counterparts without the mess.

If you already have a fireplace that isn’t in use, gas fireplace inserts exist that can be easily installed into the preexisting space. With a chimney inspection to clean out any previous residue and ensure a properly functioning chimney, your gas fireplace installation can be finished quickly, allowing you to bask in the warmth. If your home doesn’t have a pre-existing chimney, don’t worry. Modern gas fireplaces often just need a vent to the outside. This short vent doesn’t involve major remodeling or invasive construction; most companies can install in within a day.

For the busy modern family, gas fireplaces are a perfect choice. There’s no need to collect wood, clean ashes, or monitor the flue for flammable deposits of creosote and soot. If you decide to leave the home or go to bed, a flip of a switch will kill the flames immediately, allowing you to enjoy a fire when you want without extended commitment to watching it. Many modern gas fireplaces even come equipped with a remote control, allowing easy use at a distance. There’s a reason gas fireplaces have been gaining popularity over the years.

the starter for my gas fireplace is leaking and has been tagged by the gas company. what would be the normal cost for a new starter? not the switch.

Mali, it’s not possible, or wise, to guess prices with this much information. Nobody likes this answer but you truly do have to have a serviceman come look at it first. If you are in the DC Metro area please give us a call. If you live elsewhere you want to find a company with a full-time gas tech on staff or at least that the technician is NFI Gas Certified.
