indoor & outdoor gas fireplaces

The natural warmth of a gas fireplace can be truly comforting during any season of the year.  We offer many different gas fireplace options that allow you to avoid the mess and maintenance of a chimney.

Morehead Electric is a proud distributer for Empire Comfort Systems.  Empire manufactures White Mountain Hearth indoor and outdoor fireplaces, inserts, logs & burners, cast iron stoves, and mantels right here in the USA.

Empire offers zone heating systems in Direct-Vent, Vent-Free, B-Vent, and Power-Vent. Each has its own advantages. Our knowledgeable sales personnel can recommend the system that’s right for your home.  We also offer the optional service of professional installation of your new fireplace.

A vent-free gas insert is a very popular option.  The insert turns your existing wood-burning fireplace into an attractive and efficient heat source. Vent-free fireplace inserts are classified as zone heating appliances. Zone heating is inherently more efficient than your existing wood-burning fireplace or your central furnace.  These vent-free systems are also certified for zero-clearance installation in any wall. Just add one of our available surrounds to create an attractive in-wall fireplace.

Let’s not forget about your outdoor options.  The ambiance of a fireplace or fire pit extends the season for the outdoor living space you worked so hard to create.  With so many choices, you are sure to find a fireplace that adds a perfect glow to your outdoor lifestyle.
