How do freestanding gas log fireplaces work?
Freestanding gas log fireplaces can run on natural gas or LPG. When installing a gas fire, you’ll need a vent pipe or flue to take away fumes - although these are easily installed with the minimum of fuss. Because freestanding gas log fireplaces don’t need to be secured into a wall, they often feature exposed faces and glass sides to amplify the amount of heat radiating around the room. Some people even choose to set their fireplaces up in the middle of the room, although for practical reasons it's easier to place them against an outside wall that can support a venting pipe.
Setting up freestanding gas log fireplaces
Freestanding gas log fireplaces do not require a chimney. Instead, they can be vented directly via a wall or roof. This allows for much greater flexibility when deciding where to install your gas log fireplace.

Freestanding gas fireplaces are available in a variety of designs, meaning you can find one that matches the style of your home.

Reasons to consider installing a freestanding gas log fireplace
If you’re looking to bring the look and feel of a traditional fireplace to your home but want to enjoy the convenience of a gas-powered appliance, look no further. Here are just a handful of reasons why a freestanding gas log fireplace is a great idea:
As the name suggests, freestanding gas log fireplaces are not built into the wall. It’s therefore quick and easy to install a gas fireplace without having to spend much in the way of time, effort and money on renovations.
Heat when you need it
The beauty of gas appliances is that they provide heat when you need it. If you suddenly feel a chill in the winter air and the temperature suddenly drops, simply turn on your freestanding gas log fireplace and enjoy instant warmth.
With a gas fireplace, you don't have the trouble of sweeping up soot, and you won’t have to worry about potential damage to your flooring. Simply flick a switch when you’re done, and return to your fire when you next need it.
Attractive addition to the house
With a freestanding gas log fireplace you can create comfort and warmth, even in areas where a fireplace has never previously existed. Not only do these fireplaces look great, they’re also incredibly convenient.
Freestanding gas fireplaces produce much less carbon than traditional wood burning stoves, which means you can do your bit for the environment while enjoying all the convenience gas has to offer.
Freestanding gas log fireplaces can be installed in practically any room where you can feasibly install a connection to the gas main. This means you could enjoy the versatility of enjoying a log-effect gas fire in the bedroom, bathroom or kitchen.
