There are multiple fireplace types that we can provide for your home. Understanding the differences between these types will help you to make the ideal decision for your own property. The ideal situation will depend a great deal on your specific property, as well as any existing fireplaces you may already have within your home.
Vented Gas Logs
Vented gas log fireplaces help to mimic the appearance of a traditional log-burning fireplace, while minimizing any of the related drawbacks. The major difference between vented gas log fireplaces and vent-free gas log fireplaces is that the fire in a vented gas log fireplace tends to look more realistic and natural. The vent system is used to allow the fumes to move safely through the fireplace, where they won’t impact the health of those within the building.
Direct vent fireplaces use a versatile venting system that enables them to be used in many different locations throughout your home. These types of fireplaces are both energy efficient and environmentally-friendly. They won’t impact the air quality within your building, which is one of the many reasons that direct vent fireplaces are ideal for residential use.
Gas inserts enable you to transform your wood-burning fireplace into fireplaces that use gas to fuel their flames. These gas inserts are an inexpensive strategy for improving your fireplace, without requiring full-fledged renovations to your home. It is important to carefully measure your fireplace to ensure that you use the appropriately sized gas insert for your fireplace.
Vent-Free Gas Logs
Vent-free gas log fireplaces tend to provide the ideal combination by intermingling the traditional appearance of a log-burning fireplace without the drawbacks of burning logs in your home. They tend to be extremely heat-efficient, which increases their comfort without requiring substantial expenses. These fireplaces feature ceramic, artificial logs that contain the jets where the flames are held. Vent-free gas log fireplaces are clean and easy to use.
