Gas Fireplaces

When considering fireplace options for your home, gas will always be a superior choice over wood-burning and electric. They are a great way to enjoy the warmth and look of dancing flames with no wood to chop or ashes to clean. Gas fireplaces also burn cleaner, produce fewer polluting emissions and are very easy to maintain. The annual cost to run a gas fireplace is much less and they have the least amount of heat loss.

There are three types of gas fireplaces—inserts, built-ins and log sets—all of which have direct-vent and vent-free models.

Inserts are heating units that retrofit into an existing wood-burning fireplace transforming it into a high-efficiency gas heater. Running a gas line into the fireplace is required for this type of installation. Inserts also have adjustable flame settings and feature blowers to help circulate heat.

Built-in fireplaces are just as the name suggests. They are built into a wall where a fireplace did not previously exist. This option would require some construction and remodeling. New technology has helped add many smart features to gas fireplaces like temperature control and remote operation.

Log sets are for those who have an existing fireplace but do not use it often. They offer the most realistic look with detailed logs and glowing embers. Logs are manufactured out of three types of materials—molded ceramic fibers, extruded bisque ceramic clay and molded refractory cement.

Gas fireplace models come in numerous styles and designs that can add beauty and value to your home. Hearth and Home Shoppe carries many popular brands like Avalon, Mendota, Lopi and more. Let our knowledgeable staff guide you in selecting the right gas fireplace for your home—we can even help you choose a new mantel or surround. Our highly skilled service technicians, who receive hands-on factory training, can also professionally install your new gas fireplace.

For questions or help choosing the right gas fireplace for your home, give us a call, visit us online or come by our showroom in the Village of Mechanicsville.

Pellet Stoves and Inserts

Pellet stoves and pellet inserts are great alternatives to gas and wood-burning fireplaces. They’re easy to use, highly efficient and low maintenance. These types of heating units use pellets made of compacted saw dust, wood chips, bark and other types of agricultural crop waste. Since their source of fuel is clean-burning, pellet stoves and inserts create only a small fraction of the ash produced by wood-burning stoves and fireplaces.

Many people have chosen to install pellet stoves or inserts in their homes to reduce heating costs. Depending on the size of the floor plan, most models can provide steady heat for as little as $3 a day. Modern technologies have made pellet stoves easier to use with programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust heat output. They also feature sensors that monitor the fuel supply and automatically add enough pellets to keep the fire burning small but very hot.

Using high-quality pellets makes pellet stoves and inserts produce heat easier and more cost-effectively which is why Hearth and Home Shoppe proudly offers Turman Hardwood Pellets as well as Hamer’s Hot Ones from Hamer Pellet Fuel Co. Hearth and Home Shoppe offers deep discounts in the Spring for customers who purchase large quantities. We’ll even store your pellets for up to two years.

Pellet Stoves

Freestanding pellet stoves are vented and don’t require a chimney, making them easy to install in almost any room with an exterior wall. Pellet stoves look like traditional woodstoves but work more like modern furnaces while still providing an attractive fire to gather around. They are often made of steel, cast iron or stone and come in a variety of colors to suit your décor. Hearth and Home Shoppe offers a wide selection of sizes and styles from top manufacturers like Avalon, Breckwell, Thelin and more.

Pellet Inserts

Pellet inserts are a convenient way to renovate any outdated or unused fireplace. Using a flexible, stainless steel flue liner, pellet inserts fit perfectly into your open fireplace utilizing the existing chimney. Like pellet stoves, pellet inserts are low maintenance, provide clean energy to heat your home and come in a variety of styles to match any décor. Hearth and Home Shoppe carries pellet inserts from Lopi, Providence and more.

If you’ve considered adding a clean and cost-effective source of zone heat to your home, visit our Mechanicsville showroom today. Our friendly staff will help you choose the perfect pellet stove or insert to upgrade your living space or existing fireplace. Contact us online or call us at 804-730-3800 for questions.

After 30 years in Mechanicsville, Hearth & Home Shoppe has relocated — across the street

MECHANICSVILLE, VA -- Throughout its 30-year history located in the heart of Mechanicsville, within a stone's throw of the landmark windmill, Hearth & Home Shoppe has remained relatively unchanged — until now.

Since taking ownership in 2009, Mark James and Connie Maier have seen both revenue and their number of employees double at the business. Now, they have set their sights on something larger; something about 10,000 square feet, and located directly across the street from their longstanding storefront.

Starting in mid-March, Hearth & Home Shoppe began to move from its original location of more than 30 years at 8154 Mechanicsville Turnpike. Conveniently, the shop has relocated just across the road to 8151 Mechanicsville Turnpike, into the former Hopkins Gun and Tackle building. James and Maier are very excited about their new space, which includes a new warehouse as well as a kitchen, conference room, and other new amenities for their teammates.

"Our team is an amazing assembly of smart and caring people, and we are very excited to provide the upgraded workspace they deserve," said James.

The new location also provides added visibility on Mechanicsville Turnpike, along with better signage and an overall more prominent location, situated between Cold Harbor Restaurant and Cold Harbor Antique Mall.

The majority of the 10,000-square-foot space is taken up by a new showroom, which the team designed and built themselves. With more space for displays, the team aims to create an interactive experience for shoppers.

We want customers to imagine our products in their home, so we like to show them the big picture,” said James. “While folks might come in looking for a new fireplace, they often purchase the entire wall after they see our displays.”

Fortunately, the move happened during the off-season for the hearth industry.

“In the fall, most hearth dealers are successful,” said James. “But staying busy from spring through August is the challenge. Focusing on change-outs, from base grade to upgraded fireplaces, is how we stay profitable through the spring and summer. When fall arrives again, we can't wait to host customers in our new space.”

James and Maier hope to be completely set up in the new location by mid-June. The new location is already open for business, and the old location has closed.

New Product from Fireplace Xtrordinair

Hearth and Home Shoppe is proud to be carrying the new Diamond-Fyre Gas Insert from Fireplace Xtrordinair.

This new insert shows off an incredibly clean, linear fire coming up through a glass media floor. One of the most realistic linear inserts on the market! Not only does it look like a real fire, it also puts out tons of heat, producing a maximum of over 30,000 BTU's!

With four designer faces and two decorative metal firebacks to choose from, it's easy to update that old brick or metal fireplace into an efficient and modern heating source, while also keeping the charm of an open fireplace.

We currently have this new insert proudly burning on display in our showroom with Platinum Glass and a Bronze Shadowbox Face. Come take a look at this or some of our many other options on display!
