Gas fireplaces lead the way in unique and innovative designs and are now the most popular and best selling fireplace type. According to the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA), almost 70% of all hearth products now burn gas. And little wonder . . . given their extraordinary convenience and versatility!

After all, with a Gas Hearth, there is/are:
No more wood to chop and/or haul.
No more trouble getting the fire start-
No more messy ashes to clean up.
No more hot flying embers to worry
For the wood burning purists among us, nothing beats the sound and scent of a real crackling wood fire. However, gas fireplaces offer so many advantages, beyond those mentioned above, that it is not difficult to understand why they are so popular!
To begin with, whether a traditional or
contemporary design, starting a fire
is as simple as pressing a button on a remote control device. And just as easily,
the fire can be extin-
But that's not all . . . the hand held remote control also lets us "play" with the fire! We get to pick up where the designers left off! (Hold onto your remote while I explain)
Due to the nature of the fuel, designers have been able to move beyond the constraints of "conventional" fireplace design to create some very unique and innovative gas hearths, such as those pictured below.
But as unique and innovative as the new designs are, the designers were still not satisfied. They wanted to do something that had never been done before. They wanted to design the FIRE, too!
More specifically, they wanted to design unique and innovative flame pat-
terns, as shown below.
And that brings us back to our hand held remote control units . . . . . .
which put US in control by allowing us to adjust the flames to coincide with the occasion or mood . . . . sort of like the way we select and listen to our music.
And speaking of music . . . . . . it's now possible to get a programmable gas burner system that causes the flames to dance to the beat and rhythm of the music being played!
If you're looking for convenience and versatility, it's hard to beat a gas fueled hearth. Now it's just a matter of choosing between a natural or direct vent fireplace . . . or even a ventless gas fireplace. Please click on the link below to learn more about venting options.Gas Venting Options
