Linear Gas Fireplaces
Linear gas fireplaces are a great modern alternative to bulky masonry fireplaces. While a burning fire brings wonderful warmth and a relaxing atmosphere, traditional fireplaces are large and often out of place in a contemporary style home. On the other hand, linear gas fireplaces are sleekly styled with clean lines and a long, low rectangular viewing space that perfectly complements a modern abode. The wide swath of flames along with fireglass & stone alternatives to traditional log sets make linear gas fireplaces a superb addition to chicly styled homes.
Thanks to the design and construction of these heating units, linear gas fireplaces can be added to spaces where a large masonry fireplace would be impractical like a small guest bedroom or bathroom. The shallow firebox and variable venting requirements give homeowners more flexibility with installation.
Want to upgrade your current fireplace to a linear design? Have your local UFS member store install a linear gas fireplace insert. As long as your current fireplace can accommodate a larger width, a linear gas fireplace insert is a great choice. The surrounds on these units are designed to cover the larger openings of a traditional fireplace and transform it into a long, wide viewing space. Homeowners may also choose to remodel their current fireplace surround to modify the height of the existing fireplace opening in order to better integrate the shape of the new linear insert.
Homeowners can further customize the look and feel of their linear gas fireplace by switching out the surround of the unit and choosing a contemporary alternative to log sets, like fireglass, rock, stones, or sculptures. The precise lines and aesthetically pleasing design are great for an urban dwelling and the ability to customize the entire unit to suit your current décor has made linear gas fireplaces extremely popular.
Besides simply creating a unique impact, these modern gas fireplaces are also an excellent heat source. Reaching up to 55,000+ BTU/hr of heat output, homeowners can easily heat their favorite room or supplement their current heating systems. Most linear gas fireplace models are available in two gas fuel types, natural gas & liquid propane, allowing for the enjoyment of an efficient and versatile heat source that works best with the homeowner’s needs.
As with other gas fireplaces, these units are feature-laden and have a number of great convenient attributes like electronic ignition, flame height control, adjustable heat settings, remote control , and even mood lighting. Some units even operate during a power outage thanks to a valve system which does not require electricity to function.
