Richmond VA Gas Fireplace Sales & Installation | Get the Prefab Fireplace of Your Dreams
Is it time for a new fireplace? Do you have an old, underperforming gas or wood fireplace and you’re thinking of an upgrade? What about a current open masonry fireplace that you just can’t get enough heat from? In either case, a new gas-fueled zero-clearance fireplace may be exactly what you’re looking for.
Chimney Saver Solutions helps homeowners throughout the Richmond area move up to more heat and performance with modern factory-built gas fireplaces. We offer professional installation, and we’re happy to work with you to determine the best model and value for your home and budget.
What is a Gas ZC Fireplace?
Zero-clearance (or ZC) fireplaces are pre-built and ready to install in an outside wall in your home. These units come heavily insulated, making them safe to be installed very close to wall boards, flooring, wiring and other materials in your home.
A variety of sizes, finishes, design styles, BTU outputs and heat-efficiency ratings are available in modern ZC gas fireplaces. These units are safe, sturdy and excellent heat producers.
How Much Heat?
Each fireplace has its own specs, but gas fireplaces often receive heat-efficiency ratings of 70% and as high as 85%. What does this number mean? It means that the majority of the heat produced in your fireplaces will be retained to heat your home.
Compare this efficiency with that of standard masonry fireplaces, which are common in many homes. While they bring a lovely visual to a room, masonry appliances often are heat-efficiency rated at less than 20% – sometimes much less.
Advantages of Gas Fireplaces
Consider some of the advantages you’ll enjoy with a new ZC gas fireplace.
- Amazing, consistent heat on the coldest nights
- Easy to use: a switch or remote fires it up and just as quickly puts the fire out
- You have control over how much heat is produced
- No major cleaning – no flammable creosote that will need to be cleaned from the vent system, like with wood fireplaces
- Annual safety inspection and periodic wiping down is about all the maintenance that’s necessary
- Clean-burning operation meets all stringent EPA requirements
- Can install in any outside wall in your home – venting goes through a wall or the ceiling
- Runs on natural gas or propane
