Product Feature: ProBuilder 72

March 15, 2018 | Fireplaces

We introduced the ProBuilder 42 in August, and added it to our showroom in November. It was well-received, and popular amongst buyers looking for a clean, no frills type of unit. FireplaceX has now just released the ProBuilder 72. This is the second unit of a series of value-priced, efficient fireplaces. They feature the great technology we’ve come to expect from the FireplaceX brand, but without a lot of options and features, which would run the cost of a unit up. The ProBuilder series are available in IPI or Standing Pilot, and have optional twin 90 CFM fans, the remote control is also an added option. These units will be very popular amongst builders or developers, as they feature a contemporary design, and heavy duty construction that will make them durable over time, unlike the builder’s special fireplaces of yesterday. Look for the ProBuilder 54 Linear and the ProBuilder 36 Square to be released within the next year. Come see the ProBuilder 42 in our showroom.

Our response to the Zero Emissions Building Plan

November 25, 2016 | Fireplaces

As many of you have heard, the City of Vancouver has passed a Zero Emissions Building Plan. Problem: This will increase costs in a city that’s already facing an affordability problem. Vancouver residents will have limited choices on the appliances they use in their homes and businesses. In the future, this could mean:
  • No gas fireplaces
  • No gas ranges
  • No gas barbecues
  • No gas furnaces
The elimination of these appliances will lead to job loss and force businesses (especially small, like ours) to downsize, or move to a less accessible location, or close up all together. Councillor De Genova has issued a Motion on Notice (B.1) that is being voted on November 29th, 2016. The motion moves to include natural gas as an acceptable form of energy in the Green Buildings report. We at Vancouver Gas Fireplaces support Councillor De Genova’s motion, as it allows choices for business and homeowner’s, and will not lead to job losses. Please email mayorandcouncil@vancouver.ca to make your voice heard! The vote takes place on November 29th, 2016.
