Do I need a chimney?

No. This is a common mistake people tend to make. We supply vented and unvented fireplaces in Farnham and neither need to have a chimney available to operate fully.

What’s the difference between vented and unvented fireplaces?

Vented gas fireplaces are much like traditional wood burning stoves and require a vent to filter air in and out of your Farnham property. An unvented fireplace doesn’t need venting at all. All gas fuel is 100% burned so there are no fumes released into the home. Glass doors seal the gas fire just in case you have any lingering doubts about safety.

What are gas logs?

The gas log unit is where the gas is ignited and becomes a realistic looking flame surrounding flame-resistant logs. Fireplace showrooms like Guildford Fireplaces have many different types and styles available to suit the budgets and tastes of customers in Farnham. All fireplaces are fitted by our own accredited gas fire installers.

Wood burning stoves come with architectural requirements so gas fireplaces are far more developed for this kind of installation.

Are gas fires and wood burning stoves environmentally friendly?
