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.

  • On July 8, 2021, A Plus Quality Inc installed a boiler in my house. The company did a great job. The manager, Shak, came to give me a very detailed estimate. He also followed up every steps. He had a good team to come to do the installation. After installation, they check and explaining to me everything before leaving. I am really impressed. Besides, the office manager, Sandi, was very helpful too. I would like to recommend A Plus Quality Inc to my friends.

FAQ

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • 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.

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
     
  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • 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!
