How to Choose a Gas Fireplace for Your Home

With the wide range of gas fireplaces available today, choosing the right one for your home can be an intimidating task. So how do you go about picking the right fire for your needs? What to look for when choosing a gas fire. 

Here are some tips on choosing a gas fire for your home.

Firstly, the type of gas fireplace:

Although a modern gas fire can be fitted into virtually any property, the type of fire suitable for your home will depend on the type of flue, or whether you have a flue at all.

If you live in an older property, pre-1960, you will almost certainly have a traditional fireplace and chimney as the main flue. Make sure it hasn’t been blocked off by a previous owner to help retain warmth.

As solid fuel fires went out of vogue in the 1970’s and central heating became the norm, fireplaces and chimneys were replaced with flat walls, and what are known as pre-cast flues. These are hollow concrete blocks which run up inside the cavity wall to the roof and a raised ridge tile, which allows the noxious gases to vent to the outside.

Finally, you may well live in a modern house with no flue. Even so, there are now a large range of balanced flues gas fires available, which will suit your purpose.

Installing A Pumice Chimney

In this video we’ll show you from start to finish how we installed a brick chimney with a pumice lining

This customer originally asked for a quote on a steel flue system, however it wasn’t until he was advised of the benefits of a real chimney that he opted for  a new brick chimney.

The two most important factors were the appearance from the outside of the house and that it saved a lot of space inside the room.

We created a nice large opening inside so he could have the stove installed onto a simple hearth connecting directly to the chimney.  There is no need for a steel liner with a pumice chimney..
