What’s involved with installing a gas fireplace?

If you’re looking for an efficient way to warm up your living spaces than a gas log fireplace may be your best option. Installing a gas fireplace involves an assessment of your home, apartment or commercial space to identify the best way to supply gas to your room, whether a wall is required to house your fireplace and where to place to efficiently maintain optimum warmth levels.

This process could involve an exchange of photographs of your space, a quick chat to identify your needs so that we can quickly identify the best fireplace brand and model for your home and let you know of any costs upfront.

What are my installation options?

A vented gas fireplace is a good option as it expels carbon monoxide through a chimney or flue. Newer models of gas fireplaces can allow for an easier installation of a flue such as the Escea’s flexible flue technology. Vented gas fireplaces also produce realistic-looking flames compared to ventless ones. If you have an existing wood-burning fireplace than choosing a vented gas log fireplace insert would ideal as you already have an existing chimney or flue.

Other considerations you want to take into account are what kind of gas fireplace you want to install. For example, do you prefer a double-sided modern fireplace design or would you prefer a traditional fireplace that is single-sided?

Just like property real estate agents, we’re all about location (well at least in a gas fireplace placement sense). We can work with you to determine the optimal place to put your fireplace to shorten the run of any gas piping required and to ensure maximum heat economy. As such, the first considerations you might want to chat with your house members about are: vented or ventless, single or double-sided and where to place the fireplace.

Whilst the fireplace will be most popular in the colder months during the Melbourne winter, the stone and marble detailing makes it aesthetically pleasing. The highly cubic design makes simplicity incredibly appealing.

How much will it cost to install a gas fireplace?

It is hard to give you an upfront costing about how much it would cost you to have a gas fireplace installed because just like installing a dishwasher, fridge or shower to your home there a few factors we take into consideration:

  • the architecture of your house
  • whether you have an existing gas supply
  • whether an additional wall needs to be built to house the unit
  • flue installation
  • whether you have an existing chimney or flue
