Ventless gas fireplaces literally do not have any venting which makes them more economical to install. Homeowners love the practicality of these fireplaces because they only require propane or natural gas and the air circulating in the room where the unit is to be used. Not to mention, you get to enjoy a roaring fire at the touch of a button! No mess or fuss.

Gas fireplaces can produce enough BTUs to be considered an alternative or secondary heating source. They efficiently heat a room, and you'll find there are a wide variety of styles and designs that look just like a traditional fireplace and mantle. Gas Fireplaces can even be hooked up to a thermostat, so your home can have a constant temperature. Keep in mind, when you are purchasing a vent-free gas fireplace that the Stove Shop handles all of your installation needs.

A gas fireplace is an excellent addition to any household and can improve the décor and ambience, while increasing your home value. They can mimic a roaring fire just as well as a traditional fireplace, without the effort.

Whether entertaining friends or cozying up with a favorite book, there's nothing like a warm glowing fire to add ambience and warmth to the home. But hauling and storing firewood and cleaning up messy ashes can make building a wood-burning fire a hassle. This season easily transform a wood-burning fireplace and experience the beauty and benefits of gas logs while saving money, time and the environment.


Today's gas logs produce a stunning, realistic flame that can rival any wood-burning log. A wide range of wood types is available, from birch to oak, as well as colored glass and gems and accessories to add personal style to any hearth.


Gas logs are generally inexpensive to buy and install and cost about a quarter per hour of what it costs to burn wood. Some gas logs are more than 99 percent efficient.


Gas logs allow for instant enjoyment. With a touch of a button, the fireplace turns on and off. There's no need to purchase, store and season wood and clean up and dispose of messy ashes.


Gas logs prevent flying sparks, common with wood, that might burn a rug or cause other damage. They don't create indoor particulate matter that is harmful to asthmatics and those with respiratory issues.

Environmentally Friendly

Burning gas logs helps preserve natural resources for generations to come by eliminating harmful particulate matter in the air.

Which Gas Logs

Real Fyre Gas Logs offers more than 40 authentic styles, each handcrafted and hand-painted to deliver a realistic look with dancing flames and a glowing bed of lively embers.

Update Your Fireplace

There’s something nostalgic about burning wood in a fireplace. It’s a simple pleasure to be serenaded by the familiar crackling sound of wood burning while taking in woodsy aromas. But making time for it isn’t always so simple. Cutting and stacking wood, building fires, and cleaning up ash are time-consuming propositions that our busy lifestyles don’t always allow. Over time, a masonry-built fireplace can also become dated. Does this sound like your fireplace? We have the answer to upgrade your fireplace, and it doesn’t involve a lengthy or expensive remodeling project. It’s called a fireplace insert.

As the name suggests, a gas fireplace insert fits directly into your existing fireplace, greatly enhancing its performance and beauty. Operated by the flip of a switch or remote control, gas fireplace inserts burn natural gas or liquid propane, so there’s no ash to clean up.

Elevate Your Style

A 15- to 25-year old fireplace is just that – a 15- to 25- year old fireplace. A fireplace insert upgrade will give it a major facelift, and the work can be completed in a day or two.

Add Function and Efficiency

Your old wood fireplace is probably less efficient than you might think. Some masonry-built, open fireplaces like the one on the left below can exhaust as much as 24,000 cubic feet of warm air to the outside, while drawing cold air in through the doors and windows of the home. A gas insert will turn that around immediately, making your fireplace up to 85% efficient and your home warmer.

This National Fireplace Month, Think Beyond the Living Room for Your Next Fireplace or Stove

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 15, 2019

What makes a house a home? Its fireplace. What makes that fireplace special? The design, beauty and comfort of the hearth.

But the hearth isn’t just for your living room anymore.

October is National Fireplace Month, and we want to remind home builders and homeowners that, thanks to the ingenuity of designers and architects, a beautiful hearth can center any room of the house.

The hearth is the home’s heartbeat, the connection point for all who live there. For centuries, when you think of hearths, you envision living rooms and dens, but our lifestyles have changed. Where we congregate and how we spend our time has evolved. Combine those changes with home builders and remodelers’ creativity, and you can now consider a fireplace for nearly any room.

Consider these six spaces:

  1. Bedrooms: Make your bedroom even cozier and consider giving it a cabin-like feel with a gas fireplace or even a stove.
  2. Kitchen: Steep your morning tea and read the news at your breakfast nook warmed by an assuring, alluring flame.
  3. Office/study: Want to fire up your best thinking? A sleek electric fireplace beside your home desk can be your best collaborator.
  4. TV room: Fireplaces are the new flat screens. As more consumers cut the cable cords, hearth manufacturers are boldly reclaiming their rightful place as the TV room’s focal point, offering thin, long, horizontal gas fireplaces for installing in the center of the wall.
  5. Bathrooms: An evening soak in warm suds can be made even more relaxing and intimate with a remote-control fireplace
  6. Your outside wall: Want to make your home even more open? An indoor/outdoor fireplace connecting your favorite indoor room to your backyard patio truly opens up the home.

Warming up to the idea of fireplaces beyond the living room? Contact The Woodstove Fireplace & Patio Shop, your specialty retailer.
