Frequently Asked Questions

Popular Fireplace Questions

  • Gas, Electric, or Wood Burning?

    One of the best things about gas fireplaces is that they provide excellent heat and a hearth flame with the flip of a switch. There is wide variety of sizes and aesthetic choices in gas fireplaces and considerably more leeway in terms of venting (inserts, direct-vent and vent-free models) than that offered by wood-burning fireplaces.

    Electric fireplaces usually come out of the box, so you do not need to choose construction materials or dimensions because the fireplace will come already constructed. They are typically on the smaller side, making them an excellent choice for smaller rooms.

  • Vented or Vent Free Fireplace?

    The two main types of gas fireplaces available today are Direct Vent and Ventless. Direct Vent fireplaces require a venting system while Ventless fireplaces are just that – completely vent-free.

  • What Brands do you carry?

    We are authorized dealers for Napoleon, Town & Country, Valor, Astria, Empire, RH Peterson, Valor, Eiklor, Mendota and more. Our showroom has over 30 fully functional fireplaces on display in many different styles and configurations. We are always adding new displays to our lineup to keep things fresh. 

  • Decorative or functional fireplace?

    First you’ll have to decide what type of fireplace is right for you and your family. Will the unit be a source of primary heat or will it be used for decorative purposes? Is ease of use and maintenance a priority? What kind of fuel do you prefer? These questions should help you determine whether you’d like an electric, gas or wood burning fireplace.
