Linear fireplaces are a great choice for homeowners that enjoy the warmth & appeal of a fireplace, but prefer sleek lines and a clean look to a large & bulky masonry fireplace. Linear fireplaces provide contemporary style that is perfect for both new builds and home remodels. These fireplaces feature a long & low rectangular viewing space and wide swath of short flames to create a truly unique impact.
The precise lines and sleek construction give linear gas fireplaces a more modern looking, making them a perfect addition to an urban dwelling or contemporary abode. Linear gas fireplaces also offer more options & features that let the homeowners create a completely customizable look. From fireglass and stones to decorative gas log sets, you can match your new linear gas fireplace perfectly to your current home décor and style.
Although there are a few linear gas models that are vent-free, almost all units have direct venting requirements. Because of their minimal installation requirements and long, low design, linear gas fireplaces can be installed in many rooms throughout a home, even in locations masonry fireplaces would be impractical like a bathroom or small bedroom.
You can even convert your current wood burning or gas fireplace into a modern display by installing a new linear gas fireplace insert. Homeowners can opt for a more linear looking insert as long as they have the width in the existing fireplace opening. The surrounds of these inserts are designed to cover larger openings and to create a long, low rectangular viewing space which gives a more contemporary appeal than a traditional fireplace. Homeowners can also choose to redo the surround of their current fireplace and modify the height of the fireplace opening in order to accommodate the linear shape of the new gas insert. Contact our hearth professionals for more information on upgrading to a linear gas fireplace insert.
More than just aesthetically pleasing, linear gas fireplaces are also a fantastic heat source. From 15,000 BTUs to 55,000+ BTUs per hour of heat output, you can quickly warm your favorite room on those cold winter nights. Available in two gas fuel types, natural gas & liquid propane, linear gas fireplaces are extremely efficient and versatile.
As with other gas fireplaces styles, linear gas fireplaces offer a number of convenient features like electronic ignition, flame height control, adjustable heat settings, remote control, and even mood lighting. Some models even feature a valve system which does not depend on electricity so it can be operational even during a power outage.
