Converting your wood fireplace to a gas one is a great idea, as it will make it easier for you to use your fireplace, and require less maintenance than a wood burning fire. Although the conversion of your fireplace is generally a straightforward one, it should always be done by professional, as not only will it ensure it’s done properly, but also in line with rules and regulations. Plus, these can usually be completed within a day or two.

In most cases, a professional will come in to remove or adjust any existing masonry, and then put in a gas line in your fireplace. Once you have your gas line has been installed, you will then need to choose which type of burner you want; whether it’s a standard gas burner, coal, logs or pebbles. Depending on which media type you go with, the fireplace will offer a different look and feel.If you are wanting to convert your existing Jetmaster wood fire to a balanced flue fireplace, you also have the option to do so, provided you have an existing chimney.

The great thing about changing your wood burning Jetmaster to a gas unit is that you do not need to worry about replacing the firebox, simply choose the burner you want and your installer can look after the rest of the work.

Plus, you don’t need to worry about buying and storing firewood to burn in your fireplace, simply light your fire with the flick of a switch or the push of a button.So if you’re sick of sourcing, stocking and using wood for burning, here’s how to streamline your fire burning efforts.

If instead of an open gas fireplace, which only provides radiant heat, you would like a fireplace with a fan that will produce a good amount of heat, then a fire like the Heat & Glo i30 is perfect. The i30 is a sealed balanced flue fireplace, and draws fresh air for combustion from outside. Keep in mind that if you like the open gas fireplace design better, you will need fresh air vents installed in the room, as open gas units use internal oxygen for combustion.

Converting your wood fireplace into gas is less costly and time-consuming than you think, and can provide you with a more efficient fire burning solution. If you’re looking for a professional to convert your wood fireplace, get in contact with our friendly and experienced team today!
