While people agree that a gas fireplace makes their house a home, choosing from the many options can be confusing. The following questions are intended to help you identify the right unit for your home. Remember that the starting point is you, your home, your tastes and your lifestyle.*
From there, an Authorized Mendota Dealer can help you choose the ideal product.
With today's venting options, hearth products can be installed almost anywhere in the home. Consider a fireplace for nontraditional locations, such as the kitchen, home office, or master bedroom or bath. Even outdoor fireplaces by patios and decks are a very popular trend today.
If you have a unit that is inefficient or seldom used, converting to a new hearth product may be simple and surprisingly affordable. A gas fireplace insert may be just right for you.
You can add atmosphere and focus to your home by incorporating a gas fireplace early in the design stage. Talk to your architect, remodeler or Authorized Mendota Dealer for more information.
Some hearth products are simply decorative, while others are extremely efficient. Mendota gas fireplaces and gas fireplace inserts are both efficient and beautiful to watch. What's more, heat output is adjustable and can be controlled depending on your mood and the weather.
Whether you want to heat one room, a specific living area or an entire house, the right size unit is very important to your enjoyment. Choosing a size is based on the amount of heat the fireplace needs to generate or the desired aesthetic appearance of the fire. Your local Authorized Mendota Dealer can help you determine the right size factoring in your climate, floor plan and lifestyle.
One of the benefits of Mendota hearth products is that they can operate during power outages, when you need the heat the most.
Mendota offers many choices in fronts, linings, overlays, doors and finishes. You can Design Your Own Fireplace or view the possibilities in our Idea Gallery. Or stop by your local Authorized Mendota Dealer to see all the options in person.
Price is always a consideration, but it's important to remember that a fireplace is a once-in-a-lifetime purchase that's permanently installed in your home. It's not something that you replace every so often like a car or television. Hearth product prices range from a few hundred dollars in apartments and condos to several thousand dollars. Fuel prices also are a factor to consider and vary by region. Your local Authorized Mendota Dealer can help you with budget considerations.
