Knowing our Illinois and Missouri customers have different tastes and needs, we offer three different types of fireplaces—wood, gas, and electric.

Wood Fireplaces

Wood fireplaces are still the most popular choice for fireplaces in the United States, as there is always something comforting about the crackling and popping of a wood fire on a cold evening.

To help with the chimney heat loss associated with this type of fireplace, we offer energy-efficient models.. Our wood fireplace lines will easily fit in with any design plan and decor you may have—from more traditional to modern. Come in to our showroom to see for yourself our comprehensive selections for new builds to renovations. We have something for everyone.

Gas Fireplaces

Gas fireplaces have come a long way since their early days. Many times you need to look twice at a fireplace blaze before you know it is gas rather than wood.

We offer a full range of gas fireplaces and have something perfectly suited for your home and needs. From a traditional wood look to an artsy stone or glass installation, you will certainly find exactly what you are looking for in a fireplace with Bruening Heating & Air Conditioning and Fireplaces.

Gas fireplaces are gaining in popularity for many reasons, but typically it comes down to their convenience and smaller impact on the environment. Depending on your preference, gas fireplaces can ignite with a switch, button, or remote control, and you can also directly control the flame size for a consistent output of warmth and ambiance. It is hard to match this level of convenience.

When it comes to the environment, gas fireplaces are friendly choices due to their high energy efficiency. Since they burn gas as their fuel, they burn cleaner and produce fewer polluting emissions than wood fireplaces.

Electric Fireplaces

Electric fireplaces can provide the ultimate heating solution for you.

While they do not match the heat output of wood or gas fireplaces, they offer other advantages in trade. These fireplaces offer high flexibility in both pricing and installation.

Some models are very economical in price while offering a similar aesthetic beauty of a cozy blaze from wood or gas fireplaces. Installation is a minimal process as well. There are models ready to go simply after plugging them in.

Yet another advantage to this fireplace choice is its energy efficiency and environmental impact. There is no heat lost up the chimney as there is with wood or gas models since everything with electric fireplaces is converted to heat. This makes it the most energy-efficient pick of the three as well as the cleanest.

Come on in to our showroom and peruse our electric fireplace models. Similar to our wood and gas fireplaces, we have a full gamut of design choices—and something perfect for you.

Fireplace Inserts

Similar to our fireplaces, we offer many options for fireplace inserts. No matter what your design preference is, we can help you make the optimum choice for your decor, energy needs, and wallet.

Inserts installed in your existing fireplace to increase the fireplace's energy efficiency and heat output into your home. Some models come with circulating fans to blow that warmth straight into your room, helping to decrease any chimney heat loss. They can be installed into your existing fireplace or factory-built fireplace.

We invite you to browse our showroom and talk with one of our knowledgeable team members about what you have in mind for your home.

Additionally, if you are looking for a repair, maintenance, cleaning, or inspection for your fireplace, you can rest assured we are ready to help. According to the National Fire Protection Association Standard 211, “Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary.”

One of the biggest drawbacks to masonry fireplaces is the amount of heat energy lost up the chimney. To help combat this heat loss, we recommend a wood insert for your fireplace. This can reduce the amount of warm air the fire draws from your room. Be sure to have a look at our fireplaces for the perfect style for your Quincy, IL home. Installing a fireplace insert can further reduce the amount of air drawn into and out the chimney, while blowing warmth into your room. We carry a full line of inserts for every taste and budget.

We always recommend an annual inspection and maintenance for your fireplace and insert to help curtail unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs. Talk to someone on our professional team to discuss how we can help you with this.
