Looking for an efficient way to warm your living space? A gas log fireplace is one of the most popular heating options throughout Melbourne homes. Not only are gas fireplaces more environmentally friendly than a standard fireplace or electric fireplace, but there are also a variety of modern designs you can choose from.

However, before getting your heart set on a particular fireplace, it is important to determine what factors need to be considered when installing a gas fireplace.

What are my gas fire installation options?

Installing a gas fireplace involves an assessment of your space – whether that be your home, apartment, or commercial space. Doing this helps us identify the best way to supply gas to your room, whether a wall is required to house your fireplace, as well as where the best place to put your gas fireplace is (where you position your fireplace will actually determine the strength of the heat output in your home).

In terms of what options are available, a vented gas fireplace is a great choice and makes for easy gas fire installation. Newer models of gas fireplaces allow for easier flue installation, making installing a gas fireplace easy.

If you want the ease of a gas fireplace, while still wanting the look of real flames, choosing a vented fireplace over a ventless one may be the best option for you. Vented gas fireplaces also expel carbon monoxide through a chimney or flue, making them significantly more environmentally friendly.

Other considerations you want to take into account are the different types of gas fireplaces available. For example, do you prefer a double-sided modern fireplace design or would you prefer a traditional fireplace that is single-sided? These are things that need to be thought of when looking at the design and planning of your gas fire installation.

So, the things you need to determine when looking at installing a gas fireplace are:

  • What suits my current set-up – vented or ventless?
  • Do I want a single or double-sided fireplace?
  • The positioning of the fireplace

How much will it cost to install a gas fireplace?

It is hard to give you an upfront cost when it comes to how much it would cost to have a gas fireplace installed because just like installing a dishwasher, fridge or shower, there are a few things that impact this final cost.
