They will provide exceptional comfort and reliable operation year after year, and our team can install a wide range of top-quality gas fireplaces. Our installation and replacement processes adhere to the strictest quality standards, and we guarantee compliance with all regional building codes and warranty requirements.
Here are a few things to know about gas log fireplace installation:
- You do not need a chimney to have a gas log fireplace installed.
- During installation, our HVAC and plumbing professionals will install gas lines and hookups, secure the intakes, and add the burner.
- When the main system is positioned and hooked up, we will carefully and aesthetically place the logs. Once they are set, we will add sand and rocks to facilitate even heat distribution.
- We can add glowing embers for a more natural appearance.
- We can convert your traditional wood-burning fireplace into a gas log system.
What Are The Top Signs You Need a New Gas Fireplace?
Gas fireplaces typically last for 10 to 15 years before you need to replace the system. This depends on how often you use the fireplace, how well it is maintained, and the manufacturing quality. When the time comes, we will remove your old system and replace it with a modern, energy-efficient, eco-friendly replacement.
Common signs you should replace your gas fireplace include:
- Frequent problems with the pilot light
- A rotten egg smell rising from your gas fireplace
- Excessive soot buildups
- Frequent and unexpected shut-off
- Increasingly costly or frequent repairs

Gas Fireplace FAQs
Considering installing a gas log fireplace in your Springfield-area home? Here are some of the benefits of choosing a gas fireplace over a traditional wood fireplace:
- Realistic looking – Modern gas log fireplaces can look incredibly realistic and aesthetically pleasing.
- Cost-effective – Natural gas is a relatively inexpensive form of energy.
- Eco-friendly – Gas logs produce fewer emissions because they burn natural gas or propane.
- Safer than burning wood – Wood-burning fireplaces come with a lot of safety risks, unlike gas fireplaces.
- Fast and easy to use – Gas logs are incredibly simple and can be lit with just the touch of a button or lighting a match.
No, you don’t. This only directly applies to an unvented gas log system, not to a vented gas log system. Vented gas systems still require some sort of vent, but it does not need to be a chimney.
All gas fireplace systems, vented and unvented, are completely safe for pets. Absolutely no fumes, particles, or other air pollutants are released into the home.
One of the major advantages of a gas fireplace system is its energy efficiency. Wood-burning fireplaces need a large amount of fuel (wood) to produce only a moderate amount of radiant heat. They also produce sooty carbon byproducts that are bad for the environment.
Gas fireplace systems are very energy-efficient. All of the fuel they burn is directly converted into heat and light. Gas log fireplaces only require a small amount of fuel to produce a large amount of radiant heat.
