Tips for Buying a Gas Fireplace

Fireplaces are not only a great source of heat, they are also a wonderful display that can leave a person entranced for hours. For Toronto residents experiencing the Canadian weather, the thought of purchasing a gas fireplace seems essential. However, many people are unsure where to even start when purchasing a gas fireplace in the Greater Toronto Area. This short tip guide, with points to consider, will give good insight when purchasing a gas fireplace in the Greater Toronto Area!

Ventilation

The first thing to determine is the type of ventilation that the gas fireplace will use. A ventless gas fireplace does not require any vent installation and is considered the most efficient because heat is not lost through any ventilation system. A vented fireplace loses some of those luxuries but fresh air is circulated through an air intake pipe. 

Gas Type

There are two major choices when it comes to gas: natural or propane. Natural gas is the cleanest burning but propane still burns well, produces great amounts of heat, and is a great alternative for rural communities.

Style

The flames of the fireplace can differ depending on the style used for the firebox. The main choices for owners are typically glass or logs. The logs are more rustic and create a more traditional flame. Glass is useful for a contemporary ambience as the flames reflect off of the sheen surfaces of the glass. 

Cost and Value

Consider the cost of the new fireplace. Gas fireplaces add value to the home so take in to account any added value in addition to the total cost. A gas fireplace price ranges in cost due to different features, size, brand, and other factors. For the most accurate price estimate, contact us today to speak with a representative from A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, to discuss what you are looking for in a fireplace. 

Sitting by a warm fire during the cold season brings comfort and happiness to everyone. There are several benefits to owning a gas fireplace, whether it be visual or functional. A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, can be of great assistance for first time fireplace buyers. Contact us today to speak to a specialist about adding a gas fireplace in your home.

Client Testimonials

  • First experience was on New Year's Day, 2020, when furnace stopped. Called A-Plus and they had a rep (Jack) out quickly. He did some troubleshooting. He wasn't giving BS. Gave me options on repairing or replacing. Non-biased, no pressure. I chose replace and it was done the next day. Good experience all around. Second experience was early March, 2021 when a harsh chemical smell emanating from the furnace room, and pushed through the HVAC venting, permeated the house. Very concerning. Was late night, called A-Plus, immediately answered and suggested some safety moves for the evening. Booked a visit for the morning. Jack again came and assessed the issue and advised where the smell came from (outside). Again, very professional, quick, no BS, good guy. Completely satisfied with the service after often being given the BS treatment from other service providers for the house. Would definitely recommend.

FAQ

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • Most common Boiler Issues

    - Boiler fails to ignite
    - Low pressure
    - Strange Noises
    - Boiler is not responding to the thermostat
    - Cold Radiators
    - Boiler leaking or dripping
    - Boiler cycling very fast
    - Available Hot water but No Heat

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!
