Gas fireplaces are a recent entry in home heating solutions. The fireplaces have gained popularity drastically and are currently giving wood heaters stiff competition. The debate of whether gas or wood fireplaces are better is still unresolved as new technologies are introduced to improve the efficiency of both fittings. Gas fireplaces have the advantage of being energy efficient and convenient. On the other hand, wood fuel is cheaper. Nonetheless, gas fireplaces have taken the market by storm and currently, numerous big names have their models in Australian homes.
Gas fireplaces come in different designs ranging from freestanding fireplaces and inserts to linear gas fireplaces. The freestanding fireplaces require no surrounding enclosure and come in an array of designs. Both traditional and contemporary designs are available for the fireplace and high definition log sets are designed to augment the look. Inserts, on the other hand, are installed into the masonry. They are ideal for replacing pre-existing fireplaces. Inserts are designed for ease of installation and come with a flexible flue, multiple faces and finishing panels to fit perfectly into the existing opening. Linear gas fireplaces are an elegant selection for living spaces. The fireplace is always the talking point of many interior designs.
