Complete Fireplace Packages

When you think of fireplaces, you probably think about wood burning fireplaces. The crackling wood seems integral to the experience of enjoying a fire. But what if we told you that you could combine the look and feel of a traditional fireplace with modern convenience? These are just a few of the benefits of owning a gas fireplace.

Of course, you don't have to choose a gas fireplace with the classic appearance of a wood unit. If the layout of your home permits, you might consider an transparent installation in a central location that can be enjoyed from multiple vantage points. This type of fireplace is a great option if your house has an open floor plan. Alternately, you could choose a stark contemporary unit that is set right into the wall without a surrounding mantel or defined hearth space.

The controls for gas fireplaces can be customized to suit the preferences of the people who will be using them. The simplest set-ups have switches right on the fireplaces that turn the flames on instantly. For more convenience, you could install a wall switch or even a remote control. These devices range from basic on/off switches to precise temperature adjusters. To see some examples of the different ways to design and configure a gas fireplace, take a look at our pre-selected packages.
