Service Gas Fire
Give us a call to service your gas fire place
More Than Just One Option
A gas fire place can come in three types. Inserts, for those of us who want to retrofit a wood-burning firebox with something more convenient and efficient. Built-ins, for those who want a fireplace where there isn’t one now. Last but not least, you have the log sets, basic burners that sit in existing, open fireplaces.
Both inserts and built-in fireplaces are reliable heat producers, filling your room with a mix of warm air and radiant heat. Log sets are usually more for looks than warmth. With each type, you have a choice between models that vent the flames’ fumes outside or vent-free versions that discharge all their heat, and exhaust, into the house.

Why keep your gas fire?
- \A wall thermostat can control the flame size—and therefore heat output—to maintain a specific temperature setting in the room.
- \The fixed glass panels covering direct-vent fireboxes ensure that the furnace- or boiler-heated air in the rest of the house doesn’t escape up the flue, as it does with a wood fire.
- \You can get as much as 75 to 99 percent of a fuel’s energy back as heat, instead of the 10 to 30 percent for wood fires.
- \A gas fire place can go almost anywhere—in an upstairs bathroom, in a basement, or outdoors—without needing a chimney.
- \You don’t have to split, stack, season, or haul logs.
- \There are no ashes to bag, no smoky smells, no chimney to clean.
- \You can start, adjust, and snuff out fires with the touch of a remote control.
- \The fire needs no tending and won’t die out from neglect.
