It's that old world charm of having a fireplace in your home that brings so many of our customers to us. Indeed, so many like to visit the Hocon Hearth House Torrington showroom just to experience that charm. It's that direct experience that influences the final decision between selecting a gas fireplace or perhaps to even consider a heating stove.
Let's take a moment to explain the differences between the simple fireplace insert and a gas fireplace since the casual reader might not initially understand.
If you already have a wood burning fireplace in your home you should consider one of our fireplace inserts to improve heating efficiency and overall warmth in your home.
On the other hand, there is a world of amazing gas fireplace options available when you are looking for ways to pleasantly transform the look of your living room, kitchen or even your bath room which doesn't already have a traditional fireplace.
Each of the gas fireplace lines we carry serve different purposes, and appeal to different personal tastes. Some units are small and can be installed in between the cabinets in your newly remodeled kitchen. Some gas fireplace models are long and can be installed in the middle of a wall, displayed as if it were a painting.
Some gas fireplaces can install in the corner of your room, while others can stand alone as an island or as part of a long kitchen counter top.
Wooden mantels are available and even stone arches with wrought iron faceplate complete with double arches doors can be installed to provide a faux fireplace look.
Browse our online catalog then visit one of our branches to have that first hand old world experience. Our showroom staff will be happy to demonstrate the features of each model to you.
Because of the wide array of options we are unable to stock every fireplace model in each Hocon Hearth House location. If you have a longing for a specific fireplace model you should call ahead to your local Hocon branch to find out if it is on display.
