What to Know About Purchasing a Gas Fireplace

Purchasing a Gas Fireplace is similar to any other project intended to improve a home. There is the planning stage, where the homeowner will seek expert advice to help make the process easier. This expert advice can be sought at Granville Stone & Hearth.

When it comes to purchasing and installing a fireplace, many people do not realize how helpful a good fireplace sales representative can be. There are several options to be considered when purchasing a fireplace that an experienced fireplace sales representative can explain. To buy a fireplace without first consulting with a professional in the field is a mistake that most homeowners should be sure to avoid.

Gas or Wood?

There are benefits to gas fireplaces and the benefits of installing a standard wood-burning fireplace. To understand those differences and how they affect the purchasing decision, it is essential to have a fireplace sales expert analyze the situation.

Some homes would see significant advantages to having a gas fireplace, while some homes would only accommodate a wood-burning fireplace. A sales professional will help the homeowner to weigh the benefits of each and make the right decision.


A homeowner may think that they have the perfect place to put a new fireplace, but a fireplace sales professional may find a long list of reasons why that particular placement is a bad idea. There are building and fire codes involved with a fireplace placement that only a professional would understand.

A fireplace sales expert can also recommend places in the house where a fireplace would be in a better position to heat a larger portion of the home and help keep the homeowner’s heating bills low. There are other advantages to a good fireplace location that a professional sales representative would explain and help enhance the project.


A hearth is a mandatory part of any fireplace installation, and a good fireplace sales expert can help a homeowner make all of the right hearth decisions. Options such as placement of the hearth, design of the hearth, and the materials the hearth is made from all enter into the decision-making process for creating the perfect hearth for any situation.

Designing and installing a fireplace is a complicated process that should be administered by a professional. As a homeowner gets ready to have a fireplace installed in their home, their first step should be to team up with a fireplace sales professional who will give them good advice and have a successful installation project.
