Heat Your Home
Cheaply and Quickly With a Gas
Natural gas is one of the best fuels known to man. Unlike
oil, for example, natural gas is relatively clean burning and
will not emit any unhealthy scents as part of its combustion
Unfortunately it is a bit more expensive than its oily
counterpart – however, this is not exactly a problem as it is
still cheap enough to be used effectively for heating your

From your dryer to your hot water heater to your oven, stove
and furnace, there are plenty of items in your house which may
already use natural gas as their primary source of heating
Provided you have at least one of these appliances in
your home, you will already have a natural gas pipeline
installed underneath your floorboards, making it far easier to
install a natural gas powered fireplace if you do not already
There are a pretty decent amount of people who will not be
able to use the clean burning power of natural gas to power
Fortunately enough, you can run a gas
fireplace on just about any type of gas – including the much
more portable propane variety.
Propane Gas Service
With propane you can easily take the power of gas to just
about any place you can imagine.
Since it comes in its very own
tank, propane can be used to power a gas fireplace even if
there is not a natural gas fireplace for miles.
Some gas fireplaces even have special compartments behind the mantel
which will allow you to store any unsightly propane tanks while
they are in use.

Electric Fireplace: Modern electric fireplaces models are now more long and narrow format, much like the HD and newest K4 TV LED screens? There are a number of buying decisions to be made when purchasing an electric fireplace.
If buying a wall-mounted fireplace, will you accept an electric fireplace installed "flush mounted directly to the wall". This means that the fireplace box will project from the wall. Depending on the fireplace model, this projection can be anywhere from 3-5 inches. You want to ask yourself, when you enter the proposed room, will you view the fireplace from the side? If so, you may find fire box venting and light leaks undesirable. Recess mounting into the wall is a more professional finished look and generally preferred but will involve greater remodel work to recess the firebox within the wall.
