Natural Gas Fireplaces
A gas fireplace requires the gas line to be run to the area, and a small vent is needed for most models. Vent-free units are available if unable to run a vent. This fireplace consists of noncombustible logs covering gas vents, and the fire itself burns behind glass doors. The fire draws air outside air through a gasline to support combustion, so no warm room air is drawn out of the house. If you want to add a fireplace to an existing home, a gas fireplace makes sense The unit is then set in place and hooked up.
Propane Gas Fireplaces
The advantages of a propane fireplace starts with safety as there is no open flame. Propane is inexpensive. It burns efficiently and is clean. A propane fireplace is about 80% efficient.

We can do the installation of the propane fireplace, due to the nature of gas, it is better to have professionals do the installation.
Direct Vent Fireplaces
A Direct-Vent system uses two vent pipes. One draws air in from outdoors to support combustion. The other exhausts the by-products of combustion (waste) to the outside. Combustion takes place inside a sealed chamber , with a glass front in the case of a fireplace. Room air circulates around the combustion chamber, assisted by a blower, to heat the room. Direct vent gas inserts use outside air for combustion. This results in no cold air coming in the house from windows, doorways, or other leaks to feed the fire like a natural wood fire does. As a result, this allows the room air to not lose heat and then warm up faster. Direct vents do need to be able to vent to the outside. A DV system is often installed along an outside wall to simplify the vent run, but can also be installed elsewhere in the home and vented through the roof.
Vent Free Fireplaces
A Vent-Free system uses room air for combustion and delivers 99.9% of the available heat energy directly to the room. Vent-Free systems have an unmatched safety record, thanks in part to their clean-burning technology and their Oxygen Depletion Sensor, which instantly shuts off the valve if oxygen in the room drops to and unsafe level. , It is very common to put in a Vent-Free system because they have a failing flue and don’t want to rebuild a chimney. Because no venting is required Vent-Free systems offer more installation options.
A fireplace insert is a sealed box that is inserted into an existing masonry fireplace.
