Gas Fire Installations in Bristol

Every home needs a source of heat, especially during those cold winter nights. There are three choices of heat source you can have in your home. These are a boiler, a heat pump or a fireplace. Of course, often people will opt for a fireplace as well as another means of central heating run off a boiler.

Despite the aesthetic appeal of conventional wood fireplaces studies have shown that they produce harmful emissions and are extremely bad for the environment, affecting air safety levels, especially in built-up areas.

This problem is easily solved by a gas fireplace, which can be just as attractive as a conventional wood fireplace. These can be installed in any new home with a gas supply or as a replacement to an existing fireplace.

Gas fireplaces provide more convenience and control than a conventional wood fire, as demonstrated by the following features:

  1. Gas fires only require a gas supply to run so there’s no need to store logs and timber for burning.
  2. The intensity of gas fires can be controlled accurately using a simple dial.
  3. Gas fires are easier to clean with no wood chips or ashes to clean.
  4. Gas fires don’t require a chimney meaning you have far more control over where to install them.
  5. Gas fires are far safer than wood fires as tempered or ceramic glass seals the combustion.


If you are unsure whether a gas fireplace is suitable for your home, the team here at Watertite Plumbing & Heating can help you find the answers you are looking for.

Gas fire installations should only be carried out by a qualified gas safe registered engineer. At Watertite Plumbing & Heating, all our engineers are certified gas safe and are highly experienced in all types of gas fire installation (they’re also very friendly as well).

We provide installation and replacement services for the following types of gas fireplaces and venting for your home:

  • Zero-Clearance Direct-Vent Gas Fireplace – installed as a completely new fireplace. There is a firebox where a pipe is connected to successfully draw combustion air. Another pipe that is installed on a wall outside exhausts emissions.
  • Free-Standing Gas Fireplaces – this type of gas fireplace are suspended from the floor. All its surfaces are exposed to the room for a more efficient provision of heat.


Each type of gas fireplace has its own space and physical requirements. Each also has its equipment advantages and disadvantages, as well as installation costs.
