Gas & Electric Fireplace Services
At Geo-Teck Heating & Cooling, we know fireplaces. We’ve installed them in homes for over 40 years all over Ontario. Gas fireplaces, electric fireplaces, we love them because they add so much warmth and comfort to a home, especially in winter months. They look great and they feel great!
That’s why before we even begin talking about our fireplace products, we’d like to warmly invite you to come out to our showroom and view the huge range of fireplaces we have on display. We would love to chat with you about your home, and what your vision is for your living space and see what we can do to make that dream a reality.
When winter comes into our lives (uninvited!), a natural gas fireplace is the perfect addition to a home for warmth and comfort. Just picture sitting in your favourite chair reading a book or lying on the couch having a nap with your favourite pet while the fireplace is glowing.
A gas fireplace is a great addition to a home, as it offers very low running costs, and adds a great deal of style and value to any home.
Here are some of the the advantages of owning a gas fireplace:
Constant Heat: Unlike a wood burning fireplace, a gas fireplace has constant heat supply.
No Sparks: Because there are no logs that means no ashes or danger from flying sparks.
Energy Savings: a gas fireplace can save at least 25% on your energy bill
Safer: gas fireplaces are environmentally friendly because there are no fumes released into the air or in your home.
No Chimney: A gas fireplace has a venting system which means no chimney is needed.
Stylish: there are so many design and style options for your fireplace to suit your home that look great.

Electric fireplaces are run on electricity rather than natural gas. This makes an electric fireplace a extremely simple unit to own. Here are some benefits to owning an electric fireplace:
No Fire: Electric fireplaces plug right into a regular outlet. The lights inside the fireplace create a realistic appearance of flames on fake logs or stone. But there are no real flames, or any flammable materials being used in the unit.
Low Maintenance: There is literally nothing to maintain with electric fireplaces, besides keeping little handprints off the glass! You just turn it on when you want to and turn it off when you’re done.
Cheap to buy: Electric fireplaces cost much less money to install over a wood or gas fireplace.
Plenty of Design Choices: There really is a style of everyone’s choice when it comes to an electric fireplace. Contemporary, modern, traditional, electric fireplace designs are varied and plentiful. Come and visit our showroom sometime and see!

Direct Vent Fireplaces
A direct vent system is a very efficient alternative to a traditional gas fireplace. Direct Vent Fireplaces are factory built and their venting can be routed directly through a wall to the outside, using rigid or flexible venting. Direct Vent fireplaces function by drawing fresh air into the firebox from outside, which makes a distinct difference from a traditional masonry fireplace or insert. Zero-clearance direct vent gas fireplaces are used in homes where there is no existing fireplace. This improves efficiency, maintains the air quality and distributes heat evenly throughout your room, eliminating drafts or cold spots.
How does a Direct Vent Fireplace work?
1. Combustion air is drawn from outside the building
2. Cool room air is pulled into the lower chamber; it will circulate around the firebox and is released into the room as warm air via the fan. The heat from the central burner also emits more radiant heat from the face of the unit, into your living space.
3. The Terminal is mounted outside, connecting to the fireplace indoors.
4. Venting exits from the top or rear of the fireplace to allow more versatility for installation
5. Optional rear exhaust
6. Direct vent power venting can be installed to go around stairways, up, down and around most objects in any space.
Where can a Direct Vent Fireplace be placed in my home?
Most models of Direct Vent Fireplaces are suitable for the bedroom, a living room, the basement, and pretty much wherever you want the comfort of a fire. Direct Vent Fireplaces are very sleek and offer many decorating opportunities. Not only will your fireplace be the focal point of the room, but it will also match your style sensibilities. The best part about installing a Direct Vent gas fireplace is that you don’t need a chimney, so you get to be creative when it comes to the location of your fireplace.
