As we head into winter, many people begin looking into what fireplace is best for their home. We know that looking for a new fireplace can be overwhelming when there are so many different types of gas fireplaces on the market.

What is best suited for your home or commercial space is no longer just dependent on whether you want an indoor or outdoor fireplace – there are now other technical features and design customisations to consider.

What different types of gas fires are available? 

The following gas fireplaces are available:

  • Single-Sided Fireplaces
  • Double-Sided Fireplaces
  • Energy-Efficient Fireplaces
  • Outdoor Fireplaces

    Single-Sided Gas Fireplace

    When picturing a traditional fireplace, a single-sided fireplace is most likely what comes to mind.

    So, what are the benefits of a single-sided gas fireplace? People usually make the switch from a wood-burning fireplace to a gas fireplace as gas fires don’t require the same level of upkeep. Escea fireplaces give you the ability to control your gas fireplace via Smart Heat, which allows you to set timers and change heat settings via your phone.

    Escea’s DF Series also offers a mantel surround, which is constructed out of MDF and can easily be fixed to your fireplace. This allows you to keep the traditional design elements of a single-sided fireplace, while still reaping the benefits of a gas fireplace. Just Gas Log Fires installs a range of single-sided gas fireplaces, but a couple of the popular models are the Escea DF700 and DF960.

    Escea DF700 Gas Fireplace

    The Escea DF700 is compact in size, making it the ideal indoor fireplace if you have a smaller living space. While it is smaller in comparison to some of the other Escea fireplaces, don’t worry. Its 5.9kW heat output will still ensure you stay warm.

    Whether your new gas fireplace is being installed in a timber-framed cavity or in a brick chimney using flexi-flue extensions, it can be easily installed in a variety of living spaces. The Escea DF700 uses Direct Vent technology, which draws from outside into its sealed vent. This means, your home is kept free of moisture and fumes. It also has a 5-star efficiency rating, so the gas is actually being converted into heat.

    Escea DF690 Gas Fireplace

    The Escea DF960 is perfect if you would like a fireplace to admire. Its large 670W X 470H glass window means that you have the best view of the flames possible.

    Not only is it beautiful, but this gas fireplace puts out 7.7kW of heat. It also has a 5-star efficiency rating, so the majority of the gas being burnt in the fireplace is actually converted into heat.

    The DF960 also uses Direct Vent technology (it draws air from outside the home into its sealed unit), ensuring that your home will be kept free of moisture and fumes.

    Double-Sided Gas Fireplaces

    Double-sided gas fireplaces are a great option if you have a large amount of space that needs to be heated – for example, if you have a large living and dining area. They also act as an amazing focal point in your home and include our Smart Heat feature control.

    At Just Gas Log Fires, we install a range of double-sided gas fireplaces from leading brands. A couple of popular models are the Escea DS1400 and DS1150.

    Escea DS1400 Gas Fireplace

    The Escea DS1400 is a customer favourite. Its sleek design means that you have a bigger glass viewing area (411H x 1359W), so you can enjoy your new gas fireplace from just about anywhere. 

    This double-sided fireplace really packs a punch. Delivering a huge 9.5kW worth of heat, rest assured that both rooms will be expertly heated, no matter the size. Due to its Powered Direct Vent Technology, the Escea DS1400 has a 5-star efficiency rating.

    Escea DS1150 Gas Fireplace

    Like the DS1400, the Escea DS1150 is completely frameless, making it perfect for minimalist home design. The fireplace’s sleek design allows you to completely focus on the beauty of the flames, while its impressive max heat output of 8.3kW will make sure you stay toasty all winter.

    This type of fireplace includes Powered Direct Technology to make sure no unwanted moisture or fumes will be entering your home! Its 5-star efficiency rating means that whenever you flick your Escea on, you can rest assured that there is no unnecessary energy waste taking place in your home.

    Energy-Efficient Gas Fireplaces

    During winter, our home heating systems are on more often than not. Because of this, we are seeing increased popularity for different types of gas fireplaces that have high outputs, but have 4.5 – 5-star energy ratings. 

    The Escea DL1100 and DL850 focus on energy efficiency, however, they still have the ability to heat large living spaces. The Smart Heat feature is also included with these energy-efficient gas fireplaces and acts as a remote control. This allows you to set timers for your fireplace, as well as allowing you to turn it on and off from your phone.

    Escea DL1100 Gas Fireplace

    The Escea DL1100 has a 5-star efficiency rating and includes Powered Direct Vent technology – no fumes or moisture will be getting into your home!

    It delivers over 10.4kW of heat, so you’ll be warm in even the largest of living rooms.

    The DL1100 is also customisable. Whether you prefer the look of logs over black coal, or linear trim over the minimalist frameless look, we’ll have something to suit your own, personal style.

    Escea DL850 Gas Fireplace

    The Escea DL850 is very similar to the DL1100 – just smaller.

    It has a 4.5-star efficiency rating and delivers over 8.5kW worth of heat, making them perfect for a large living area!

    We understand the importance of making sure our gas fireplaces suit the design of your home, so you have the ability to customise the Fuelbed and the Fascia.

    Outdoor Gas Fireplaces

    Whether you’re wanting to be able to entertain throughout the year or you’re just wanting to curl up on your outdoor living set with a good book, outdoor gas fireplaces are a great option for your home. 

    One of the most popular outdoor gas fireplaces we install is the Escea EF5000.  Its on/off switch also means you won’t have to worry about cleaning up any wood at the end of a long night, and you will simply be able to flick your outdoor gas fireplace off before you head inside.

    Escea EF5000 Gas Fireplace

    The Escea EF5000 has a maximum heat output of 16.5kW, so you can rest assured that your guests will stay warm on even the coldest, Melbourne nights.

    Its minimalist design means it will be suited to almost every home (and it is easily customisable, so if it’s not, you can make the changes necessary for it to suit).
