At Coopertown Services, we specialize in fireplace and chimney building and installation and maintenance, but our work goes a lot further. Really, we specialize in everything that has to do with heating appliances and chimney systems, from making them work correctly to making them fit into your life better.
What do we mean by fitting into your life? Well, let’s talk about fuel. The fuel your fireplace or stove is built to burn will have a major effect on your use and enjoyment, and how well that appliance aligns with your lifestyle. Wood-burning fireplaces are undeniably beautiful and charming, but they come with an expected amount of time and effort — from chopping or purchasing and storing wood to tending your fire and cleaning up afterward. When you’re always on the go — like a lot of us are — all that time and effort can end up making that fireplace go unused and unloved.
Here’s where we come in. A gas-burning fireplace can be the perfect change if you love having a fire at home but just haven’t been finding the time to use and tend to your wood-burning unit. And you might be surprised: Switching to gas is a lot easier and more affordable than a lot of people assume!
Different Options For Switching To Gas
First things first: Let’s start with your existing fireplace. Do you still love its look? Is it still functioning well — with a sturdy firebox and well-venting chimney (an indication, of course, that you’ve been keeping up with your regular chimney sweeping and chimney inspections? In that case, we’ll likely suggest having us install gas logs.
Gas Logs Are Realistic And Convenient!
Gas logs ultimately let you keep the look of your existing fireplace, and just add the ease and convenience of gas — letting you enjoy your fire, and extinguish your fire, in seconds. Once you choose the logs you like the look of best (the products we recommend are hand-detailed to mimic a wide variety of different kinds of wood and look incredibly realistic), we install the fuel line and your durable ceramic/refractory logs, and you’re ready to enjoy your appliance again, with no ash mess, and no hassle!
Gas Inserts Give A Fireplace A New Life
If your existing fireplace really needs a boost — whether that’s aesthetically, functionally or both — your best bet is likely to have Coopertown Services install a gas insert, retrofitted into your existing unit. We can show you a wide variety of inserts in looks that span from classic to modern, sleek to ornate. And once your unit is installed, you’ll have the look and performance of a brand-new fireplace, with the added ease of gas.
