Enjoy Greater Efficiency, Cleaner Burn & Effortless Relaxation And Warmth With A New Gas Insert Or Gas Log Set

Cold, rainy days and clear, frigid nights can have us craving the company of hot soup, cinnamon tea, and a soft blanket. But the most comforting thing when you just can’t seem to lose the chill is the radiant warmth of a roaring fire. The question is, who wants to put in more work at the end of a long, cloudy day or cold night when you could enjoy a fire without lifting a finger?

With a gas insert or a new set of gas logs, that radiant comfort can be yours with the flip of a switch. No trips outside to get more wood, no ash cleanup, and no work to get the fire started.

This ease of use has made gas appliances incredibly popular with today’s homeowners, but there are a few other reasons to choose gas. Gas appliances are:

  • Clean-burning and efficient — There’s a lot of talk today about the environment and what we can do to protect our planet for future generations. Because gas appliances are so efficient, clean-burning, and produce so few emissions, more and more homeowners are choosing to minimize their carbon footprint by choosing a gas appliance. With gas, you get fewer emissions, less waste, and less environmental guilt.
  • Realistic — In the past, gas appliances were mainly looked down upon because they didn’t look real. Logs were bulky and fake looking, and the flame pattern and fire itself wasn’t believable either. Today, that’s no longer a concern. Modern log sets are molded from actual wood molds and hand painted to resemble real logs. The fire and flame patterns themselves have also greatly improved to more closely resemble an actual wood fire.

Here at A-1 Chimney Specialist, we’re big advocates of gas inserts and gas log sets, and we’re proud to sell, install, and service the best the industry has to offer. If you have a busy lifestyle and wish you could enjoy a roaring, warming fire without the effort or the mess, consider having our team install a new gas insert or gas log set in your home.

We Sell & Install The Industry’s Best Direct Vent Gas Inserts

Worried about losing heat up the chimney or experiencing cold downdrafts? With a gas insert, you’ll never have to worry about either again. Direct vent gas inserts are firebox systems which are installed inside of your existing masonry fireplace. These inserts have one pipe which draws combustion air inside and another pipe for venting the appliance to the outside. Because of this direct-vent technology, these inserts don’t require a working chimney — they can be vented directly through a wall or through the roof of your home — and they eliminate downdrafts and heated air loss completely.


For Realistic Flames, Look No Further Than Our Vented Gas Logs

Looking to convert that wood fireplace to gas? Vented gas logs are a great option! These are installed inside of your masonry fireplace and can make it easy for you to enjoy your large, open hearth, without the work of building a fire every time you want to relax.

How are these different from vent-free gas logs?

Unlike vent-free gas logs, vented gas logs rely on your chimney to vent any byproducts. Because these are vented through your chimney, they don’t require the installation of a CO2 detector. Vented gas logs also provide a much more realistic flame pattern. The flames are taller and wrap around the logs in a way that resembles a real wood fire.

  • review rating 5  Great service! Due to unexpected doctor appointments, I had to reschedule two times and they worked with me to get it done as soon as possible. They were very prompt; the living area was left exactly as it was when they arrived (no mess at all!) and answered my questions. I highly recommend them!

  • review rating 5  In a time where customer service is becoming more infrequent than frequent , I have to take a moment to acknowledge the superb above and beyond service my husband and I received from A1 Chimney . First of all , we came to use this company several years ago when they sleeved our 100 year old house's chimney so we could burn real wood . We have used them regularly to check and sweep our chimney since. This year however , I had a chimney fire . Thankfully no damage was done . In looking at my records , I realized I hadn't had the chimney swept in a few years . BIG mistake on my part , hence the fire . So I called the company , sing my woes , asking if it would be possible for them to come out before Thanksgiving , this is less than 2 weeks prior by the way . Kind Marty lets me know the first availability isn't until 12/16 but he will do his best to see what he can do. He calls me back the same day to let me know he had jiggled some things around and could be out 12/13 . I thanked him but asked if there were any cancellations to please let me know. Kind Marty , let me rephrase , very KIND Marty , calls me back a couple of days ago asking if we could be free the Monday pre Thanksgiving . Absolutely , I reply . Well on Monday afternoon Preston and Robert leave after checking for damage , cleaning and confirming the sleeve did exactly what it is designed to do , protect the house in the event a chimney fire takes place , never once suggesting it wouldn't have happened if I hadn't waited 4 years . So THANK YOU all for doing such a wonderful job ! You have made us and my out of town family very happy in making it safe for us to enjoy this holiday with lovely fires , something we / they look forward to on their cold weather visits . May each of you have a very Happy Thanksgiving ! You've certainly made ours !!! Gratefully , Linda & Gill Ramsden
