Want To Convert To Gas? We Can Help


If you’re looking to make changes to your fireplace and chimney system, now is the time. Spring is a great time for home maintenance, new projects, and upgrades. Don’t set out on a DIY project when you can have the expertise and service of a professional by making a call! Beach Stove and Fireplace have all the knowledge and experience necessary to make your next project a success. If you’re looking to convert or upgrade your wood-burning fireplace, we can help. 

Converting to Gas

A great way to upgrade the look of an old fireplace and improve the efficiency of the system in one swoop is to convert your wood-burning fireplace to gas. It is easy and cost-effective when you hire a professional. 

–Gas burns clean. You don’t have to worry about nasty soot and creosote buildup because gas produces very little soot and no creosote at all. Gas is the cleanest burning fuel for household fires, and almost all the heat from the fuel is used for heating. 

–Gas is eco-friendly. Gas is a fossil fuel, but it burns so cleanly that it produces 45 percent less carbon dioxide than coal, 30 percent less than oil, and 15 percent less than wood. Gas appliances are some of the most efficient on the market, and most newer models are EPA-certified. 

–Gas is realistic and beautiful. Your new gas fireplace can look just like a wood burning fire, with realistic ceramic logs, dancing yellow flames, and ambient heat that can make any space cozy. Your gas fire can be as simple as logs placed in your existing firebox, or a new, beautiful unit retrofitted into space. Choose any style you’d like when converting to gas. 

–Gas is convenient and low maintenance. When you convert to gas, you’re exchanging your woodpile for a convenient on/off switch, precise temperature control, and even a remote control if you choose! Gas heat is easy, convenient, and requires less maintenance than wood heat. You will spend less money on routine maintenance and less time and money on repairs when you go with gas. 

Professional Installation/Conversion

Keep in mind that gas burns differently than wood and that you must have it professionally installed to avoid problems with venting and condensation. Only a professional can properly install your new gas unit properly. The flue must be sized properly to vent safely, and all connections should be checked by a professional before use. Our team at Beach Stove and Fireplace not only converts wood fireplaces to gas, but we check and guarantee our work. We are certified and trained by the manufacturers, a requirement of most product warranties.

Don’t put your family at risk by attempting to convert your own fireplace. Let us do the work, and you will have a new fireplace in time for the cold evenings this spring, and it will be ready for burn season this fall.
