We currently have part of our finished basement floor and ceiling ripped up to do a water damage accident. We weren't ever planning on renovating but since this has happened we've been thinking that now might be a good time to add a gas fireplace. The gas line is on the opposite side of the house. What's an approximate cost to run a gas line across and install a direct vent fireplace? Also, is it better to install it before or after the damage is repaired?

Hello Jennifer,

Choosing a fireplace is much different than choosing a furnace or air-conditioner. These items are just pulled from a box and installed. A fireplace is not only a source of heat but a focal point in a room that has to be pleasing to the eye. For this reason you choose different components. Thus, the price can vary. Running the gas from the supply to the fireplace will also be an added cost.

I think cost to run gas line for gas fireplace is around $800 to $3000 its depend on your usage. But in my opiniom you should try electric fireplace instead of gas fireplace [url=][/url]

some benefits of electric fireplace:
