Do you want to purchase a gas fireplace, but aren’t quite sure about gas fireplace installation costs

Whether you’re wanting a gas log fireplace for your home, apartment, or commercial space, we are here to help you learn more about the installation process and what it may cost you to install a gas fireplace.

Gas Fireplace Installation Costs

Fireplace costs tend to differ based on various factors, such as the environment you are in, as well as the type of fireplace that you are looking to buy. When it comes to pricing a gas fireplace, there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration for how much it would cost to install a gas fireplace.

Things that may affect the total cost to install a fireplace include how your home has been built. While it is possible to add a fireplace to your home once it has been built, the way a house has been built can determine what type of gas fireplace is best suited to your space. For example, if you have an existing chimney or flue in your home, it will make it easier to install a gas fireplace. However, if you need a flue to be installed, this will affect your total cost. There are various changes that you may need to make to your home which will affect the cost.

Gas Fireplace Cost Considerations

Gas supply

Connection to the gas supply is something that will have an impact on the cost of installing a gas fireplace. Do you own a wood-burning fireplace and want to make the switch to a gas log fireplace? Gas fireplaces are a fantastic alternative to your traditional fireplace, as they require less upkeep and offer a high level of energy efficiency! They also can run off either LPG or natural gas to suit the existing configurations of your property.

If you have an existing gas line, we always ensure we use the shortest run possible to make sure the installation process is as smooth as possible. However, if you do not have an already existing gas supply, you will have to contact a licensed gas supplier. This will lead to an additional cost.

Wall builds

If you do not have an existing fireplace or do not have an area where a gas fireplace can be built, we will have to build a fake wall to house your unit. This will be included in the overall fireplace installation cost.

Flue installation

A flue is a passage in which gas and other products of combustion are moved outside your home. If you do not have an existing fireplace in your home, a flue will have to be professionally installed. This is something that will lead to additional costing. 

However, newer models of gas fireplaces can allow for easier installation of a flue – such as the Escea’s flexible flue technology.

Maintenance Costs

Although a gas fireplace is more cost-effective in comparison to a wood fireplace, they still need regular services every 2 years. This is an additional cost that you should also take into consideration when buying a gas fireplace.
