Fireplace

Installing a gas fireplace in the most-used area of your home can save up to 40% on heating bills.

Traditional wood-burning fireplaces are often a source of air leaks and pollution. A gas fireplace is a great alternative that keeps heat in and helps air stay cleaner.

The convenience and efficiency of gas fireplaces

Direct-vent gas fireplaces are safe, easy to operate and provide efficient heat at the push of a button.

How is it Efficient?

Gas fireplaces burn with up to a 90% efficiency rating, meaning almost no pollution. Highly efficient gas fireplaces can heat up to 1,000 square feet of living space at low cost. This means that you can turn down your thermostat and use your gas fireplace as the heat source for your most used space, lowering your utility bills.

Recommended Type

A high-efficiency direct-vent gas fireplace uses air from outside to feed the flame, and exhausts combustion gases through a wall-mounted vent—keeping those gases out of your home. Better yet, 70% of the heat that a direct-vent gas fireplace generates remains in your home.
