Gas Fired Zero-Clearance Fireplaces

Posted in Fireplaces, Gas ZC Fireplaces, Our Products

You can add a  Gas Fireplace to your home very easily.  Zero-Clearance direct-vent fireplaces are double insulated fireboxes that don’t require you to build a full masonry chimney structure and can be outfitted for natural gas or propane.  The venting runs off the unit and up through the roof or to an outside wall and finishes with  vent cap.  Framing within the home or a mantel cabinet finishes the surround to your decorating style.  You can even apply stone to the face to create the traditional look.

There are so many options for doors, finishes and interior brick, that our gallery represents only a very small sample of the finished looks you can design for your room.  Please visit the showroom and see the six burning displays and pick up a brochure or two, that will show you all your options!

We represent Kozy Heat, Mendota, and Jotul Products.  Bring some pictures of the room’s interior and the outside of the structure or your building plans, so we can best help describe your options!
