Simply plug them in to experience warmth within minutes.

    Good Day, I’m a senior citizens on a fixed income and I’m searching for a gas fireplace! I have the setup for gas from my gas heater already established in my living room. I recently tried to purchase a Duluth WHITE OAK, Fireplace for 99.14, which turned out to be a scammer who took my money! I finally put in a dispute and was reimbursed! Because my heater is no longer working and must have it replaced before winter sets in. I would love the effect of a fireplace instead of the non-attractive gas heater hanging on my wall! I believe their must be a place where people who have a certain financial income can enjoy and experience the ambience, of the romantic warmth a gas fireplace can provide. When I saw the Dutch Crafters website and how ingenious the Amish people have always been. Also, how they made the Electric Fireplace affordable and available to anyone. I thought I would put my feelers out to your Company for another notch on the affordability of the gas fireplace! Now mind you, I don’t know the overhead cost or what it would take to get one made. I already have the gas line, just need an affordable fireplace structure with connectors. To connect gas line, remote adjuster off/on and temperature 🌡️ gauge. Let me know what you think? If anyone can do this, I believe you can! Anything is possible with God. Thank you for your time, help and consideration.

    Hi Patricia,

    I’m afraid we don’t offer any gas fireplaces, only electric ones. All you have to do is plug ours in and enjoy! Should you decide on an electric model, we do offer financing to help make payments easier. You can click here to find out more about it.
