    Gas Fireplace Burners and Heaters for Contemporary Fireplaces

    Traditional fireplaces have a nice, stately appearance, but sometimes that isn't the look that you want. Contemporary fireplace burners and heaters allow you to give your home a totally unconventional style while still providing you with efficient heat. Our collection features gas fireplace burners that use fireproof stones, glass, and geometric shapes. As an alternative to incorporating a wood burning fireplace, wood cutting machines, and re-fueling your fireplace traditionally, you can simply opt for one of our convenient, high-quality burners or heaters. Our fireplace burner options are known for adding this and similar conveniences to your hearth. Take our Empire 30" Ventless Natural Gas Millivolt Loft Contemporary Burner ; this versatile option allows installation in the following configurations: wall, mantel, art, and island. Plus, similar Empire options can be provided in smaller sizes of 18 and 24 inches. Much of your decision making processes can be set aside with our simple to use, effective burner solutions. The associated page is full of helpful videos, product manuals, and answers to consumer questions.

    I have a Hearth and Home Model BE-36-C, serial: 002238419. I want to replace the ugly logs with some cool stones to give it a more modern look. Do you have anything that would work?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, we do not carry contemporary burner systems that would be compatible with a Hearth and Home unit.

    My builder installed a fireplace that has a pilot that is on all the time. I cannot get natural gas so I burn propane. It seems to burn a lot of gas. Can I change out the burner mechanics and upgrade it to an automatic pilot that will only burn gas when I turn on the fireplace? I also read on your site that most gas fireplaces have the always-on pilot. Why is this?
    1 Answer
    Depending on the manufacturer and model of the fireplace, it may indeed be possible to swap out the millivolt valve for an electronic version. In regards to the standing pilot, the reason this is used so often is twofold. Standing pilot systems are reliable. Electronic valves require the use of several flame sensors and a circuit board. Because of this, they do not have the life expectancy of a millivolt valve. The other reason is that standing pilot valves use the pilot to generate their own electricity. As such, the unit does not require outside voltage to operate and will still function in a power outage. Only a few electronic valves have battery backups and these will only offer limited lighting capability.
