Gas fireplaces offer you the beauty of the fire without the effort of wood burning. A good alternative to chopping and stacking firewood, gas fireplaces operate with the convenience of a remote control or wall thermostat and work in a power failure! Thanks to direct vent technology these fireplaces don’t require a conventional chimney, which makes them very versatile in where you can install them.
Wood fireplaces give you that nostalgic feeling, where you can hear the snap, crackle of the fire and know that you have the comfort of heat even if the power goes out. Today’s models offer you highly efficient air tight fireplaces to heat your home or stunning clean view fireplaces with low emissions to create that special ambiance.
Electric fireplaces are perfect for creating ambiance without a lot of heat. You can have the flames “burning” without having the heater on so you can use this fireplace all year long. Modern fireplaces are so easy you can install them yourself, many linear electric fireplaces hang on the wall and just plug in.
Ethanol fireplaces have a real flickering flame and provide easy heat without any hassle. Ethanol fireplaces give you a sophisticated contemporary look to any room in your home.

Why choose new, modern fireplaces?
Modern fireplaces are built to a different standard than older fireplaces. Whether they use gas, wood or electricity, the fuel is used more efficiently than designs even 10 years old. Some of our gas fireplaces can reach up to 84% efficiency, so 84% of the fuel expended is returned to your room as heat energy.
By comparison, older, wood burning fireplaces can be as low as 30% efficient, losing heat to the surrounding walls, poor burning conditions, poor ventilation and other factors. Factors we can today almost totally eliminate.
