Gas Fireplaces Bring a Touch of Class to Your Business
A gas fireplace adds a touch of class to any retail storefront, employee break room, or other commercial facility. At Shipley Energy, we carry a wide selection of gas fireplaces and heaters that are durable enough to be used in commercial applications. You can count on us for fair prices and a long history of delivering on our promises for contractors and other commercial customers.
Gas Fireplace Options
Shipley Energy sells and installs both freestanding and full inserted gas fireplaces:
- Freestanding fireplaces tend to generate more heat and make an attractive centerpiece to a room. They are also easier to transport if you decide to move your business to another location. They do, however, take up more space and can be obtrusive in smaller, busier areas.
- Gas inserts can be installed in most existing wood-burning fireplaces. They are ideal for older buildings, and are more efficient and easier to maintain than wood. Simple push-button operation gives you a steady flame that can heat a room even when the power is out.
Shipley Energy sells gas fireplaces in a wide range of sizes and configurations. All models come equipped with an auto shutoff pilot light for improved safety. Manually controlled models have three heat settings, while millivolt units feature more precise control and remote operation.
Benefits of a Gas Fireplace
There are various reasons why gas heaters make an excellent addition to almost any business:
- Gas fireplaces offer all the advantages of wood-burning and none of the drawbacks. They produce less pollution, require no cleanup and automatically supply fuel via your existing natural gas or propane line.
- Gas fireplaces provide consistent heat in a small room, even when the power is out. Plus, there’s no smoke, creosote or other harmful emissions to worry about.
- Using a gas fireplace or other standalone heater can save you up to 25% on your monthly energy bill. If you can’t switch over entirely to propane or natural gas heat, a fireplace can offset your energy usage and reduce your reliance on an electric furnace.

Choosing a Gas Fireplace
Shipley Energy carries an extensive selection of gas heaters to meet the needs of any commercial customer. Some things to consider when making a decision include:
- Fuel type: Natural gas fireplace heaters are generally the most cost-effective and fuel-efficient option. If you already heat your facility using natural has, adding a fireplace or additional heating unit is simple. However, if you currently use electricity or another fuel source, the cost of a conversion may be prohibitive. If that’s the case, we can recommend a propane heater that’s convenient and affordable while delivering the heating performance you require.
- Configuration: Commercial fireplaces and heaters can be direct vented, naturally vented or ventless. Vented fireplaces offer the most heat but may require modification to your facility’s chimney or other expensive installation work. Ventless fireplaces can be set up anywhere and are the most economical to install, though they don’t offer the same space heating capabilities as a vented commercial heater.
- Application: Are you looking for a gas warehouse heater that will keep your facility warm and your employees comfortable, or a decorative fireplace for an office or waiting room? Commercial heaters range in size from 6000 to more than 40,000 BTUs. Contact a Shipley Energy representative directly for help estimating your heating needs and choosing the best unit for your budget.
