Nothing beats the cozy charm and warmth of a crackling fire on a chilly night. But what if your home doesn’t have a chimney? Installing a ventless gas fireplace could give you the golden warmth you crave. But what exactly is a ventless gas fireplace? A ventless gas fireplace is an appliance that uses a regulator to produce a fine mixture of gas and air that allows the gas to burn cleanly, without the need for drilling or venting.
All you need is access to propane gas—and an expert in gas fireplace installation. So, if you’re located in Southern Virginia, Midway Bottled Gas has you covered on both! We offer reliable propane delivery service and a great selection of vent-free fireplace inserts, all backed up by experienced pros to handle the job.
Truth be told, there’s a lot to like about ventless propane fireplaces.
Because there’s no need for exterior venting, ventless propane fireplaces are super versatile. They can be installed almost anywhere and can even be free-standing. That means you can incorporate the ambiance and warmth into just about any room, including living rooms and family rooms, but also kitchens and dining rooms. Create your dream master suite or a spa-like bathroom escape, just by adding a gas fireplace. You can also convert traditional fireplaces to a maintenance-free propane hearth with a gas log insert.
They also provide efficient supplemental heat without the mess, smoke, and ash of a wood-burning fireplace.
Did you know as much as 90% of the heat from a wood-burning fireplace goes up the chimney? A ventless fireplace is almost 100 percent efficient, even more efficient than a vented gas fireplace, because none of the heat escapes through venting. They’re also much more attractive than a space heater, delivering cozy charm as well as real warmth!
A propane fireplace is also noticeably safer. No more playing with matches and waiting for tricky kindling to catch—you can turn on and adjust the flame with a wall switch or even a remote control and turn it off right when you are done! Additionally, ventless fireplaces are rigorously tested and come with built-in carbon-monoxide detectors. They’ll shut off automatically if CO is detected, or if oxygen levels in the room fall below safe levels.
There are a wide range of design options available for these units. Go with the traditional look of a mantle and hearth, including realistic logs, or choose a more sleek, contemporary style. Express your design vision with a long, linear model with stones or glass instead of logs, or turn an odd corner into a striking focal point. We offer a broad range of styles from leading manufacturers, including R.H. Peterson, Heatmaster, Golden Blount, and Empire!
Whether you’re looking to make upgrades for yourself or to add value for a potential sale of your southwestern Virginia home, adding a ventless propane-fueled fireplace is an easy and affordable option.
