Gas Fireplaces Offer Convenience and Authenticity

In the past, gas fireplaces didn’t look authentic – and they just weren’t pleasing to the eye. They looked “fake.” Now, they’re as beautiful as they are utilitarian. Gas fireplaces provide a realistic depiction of a wood burning fireplace, and they provide a nearly unparalleled ambiance when the family gathers round at the end of the day.

There’s also no ash to sweep, no wood to stack, and they operate either with the flick of a switch or a thermostat – for an even less “hands on” approach to overall home heating.

Types of Venting

Depending on the type of fireplace and the set-up of the home, there are several venting options.

Direct Venting is very adaptable. It can be vented through the wall, roof, or even an existing chimney. This type of venting is especially useful, because it also eliminates drafts and other types of heat loss that can happen with a traditional fireplace. Direct venting uses a sealed firebox, and it draws combustion air from outside the home. It’s also useful for homes with competing appliances for combustion air. All-in-all it’s perfect for smaller homes, or even apartments.

B Venting is one that utilizes an existing fireplace or chimney. Air is drawn into the chimney for combustion, which makes it perfect for older homes that aren’t quite as tight as newer housing.
