What are the different kinds of gas fireplaces?
Generally, there are 3 broad kinds of gas fireplaces to choose from – inserts, log sets, and built-ins. The insert is a log sitting inside a metal box that sits inside a bigger metal box.
It is ‘inserted’ into a wall and does not protrude outwards. They can be vented or ventless.
Log sets are the most affordable choice, being a set of logs that sits inside your existing fireplace with a gas connection in the center. Much of the heat does up the flue, unfortunately.
Built-ins are similar to inserts except there is no pre-existing fireplace to slot into. Most gas fireplaces will have logs in the center, but there are other options, such as coal, glass, or stone.
Of course, all of these materials are fake, made of a heat resistant material and designed for aesthetic appeal.
What are the benefits of gas fireplace installation in Melbourne?
Can I install the fireplace myself?
In Victoria (and practically every other state and municipality) it is illegal to work on any kind of gas appliance without a licence. There are significant fines in place for those who work with gas appliances without the proper licensing. And this stands to reason – gas can be extremely dangerous for those without the expertise, experience, licensing, and qualifications. Thankfully, at Reed Plumbing, we have all of these components to ensure a smooth install.
Can plumbers work with gas appliances?
Gas plumbers are responsible for installing, extending, and repairing natural gas lines and installing associated appliances. Gas plumbers are speciality plumbers that need to get a specific licence. Our speciality gas plumbers at Reed Plumbing & Drainage have the skills and expertise to complete gas fireplace installation in Melbourne. We know all of the codes and regulations surrounding gas fireplace installation.
What does a gas plumber do?
Licensed gas plumbers typically complete the following roles:
- Install, repair, and replace gas appliances.
- Install gas bottles (including regulators, changeover valves, pigtails, and gas lines).
- Install and repair gas flue pipes (important promoting healthy household ventilation).
- Install gas detection systems.
- Conduct leak testing and repairs.
What is the difference between a gas plumber and a gas fitter?
Though not commonly understood, there is a difference between a gas plumber and a gas fitter. In fact, there are different standards and different qualifications for each.
To make matters a little confusing, many contractors will offer both gas fitting and gas plumbing. At Reed Plumbing & Drainage, we have licensed and insured gasfitters and licensed and insured gas plumbers.
Either way, the installation of your brand new gas fireplace in Melbourne is covered by our level of expertise.
