Gas fireplaces are a popular choice for their convenience, efficiency, and aesthetic appeal. They come in several types, each with its unique installation requirements and benefits:
  1. Gas Fireplace Inserts: These are designed to be installed in an existing wood-burning fireplace to convert it into a gas fireplace. The insert is a complete unit that includes a gas log set enclosed in a fireproof box surrounded by steel or cast iron. This type of installation is perfect for those who want to upgrade their traditional fireplace to a more efficient and easy-to-use gas fireplace.

  2. Built-In Gas Fireplaces: Also known as “zero-clearance” fireplaces, these are designed to be installed during the construction or renovation of a home. They can be installed directly against combustible materials like wood or drywall, which allows for flexible placement in the home. Built-in gas fireplaces can be vented through a chimney or direct vented through the wall or roof.

  3. Freestanding Gas Fireplaces: These are standalone units that resemble old-fashioned wood-burning stoves. They are an excellent choice for those who want the charm of a wood stove with the convenience of gas. Freestanding gas fireplaces can be vented through a chimney, direct vented, or be ventless.

  4. Ventless Gas Fireplaces: These fireplaces do not require a chimney or vent, making them easy to install almost anywhere in the home. They are highly efficient as they do not lose any heat through a vent or chimney. However, they release combustion byproducts into the home and may not be allowed in some areas due to local regulations.

  5. Outdoor Gas Fireplaces: These are designed to be installed outdoors in a patio or backyard area. They can be built-in or freestanding and are a great way to extend your living space outdoors.

Each type of gas fireplace installation has its advantages and considerations. It’s important to choose the right one based on your home’s structure, local regulations, and personal preferences. Always consult with a professional fireplace installer to ensure a safe and proper installation.

Fireplace Repair

In addition to installation, Techno-Gas also offers fireplace repair services. With a one-year guarantee on all repairs, you can feel confident that any issues will be addressed promptly and professionally. Their experienced technicians are committed to providing quality services and will work with you to ensure that your fireplace is running safely and efficiently.

Gas fireplace repair involves a range of services, from simple cleaning and maintenance to more complex tasks like fixing faulty gas lines or replacing worn-out parts. Here are some common problems that require gas fireplace repair:
  • Pilot Light Issues: The pilot light is a small flame that ignites the gas burner in your fireplace. If it goes out or won’t stay lit, it could be due to a faulty thermocouple, a clogged pilot orifice, or issues with the gas supply.

  • Faulty Gas Valves or Lines: If your fireplace isn’t producing a flame or the flame is weak, there might be an issue with the gas valve or the gas lines. This could be due to blockages, leaks, or a faulty valve.

  • Dirty or Damaged Burners: Over time, the burners in your gas fireplace can become dirty or corroded, which can affect the efficiency of your fireplace and the quality of the flame.

  • Venting Issues: Proper venting is crucial for the safe operation of your gas fireplace. Blockages, leaks, or damage in the venting system can lead to poor combustion and the release of harmful gases into your home.

  • Thermopile or Thermocouple Failure: The thermopile and thermocouple are safety devices that detect whether the pilot light is on. If they fail, the gas supply to your fireplace will be cut off to prevent gas leaks.
