Classic Hearth

Ordinary vented gas fireplaces and wood burning fireplaces operate at much lower efficiencies and significantly higher costs, allowing beneficial heat to escape out the vent pipe or up the chimney. Also, since a the fireplaces operate without electricity, it is the perfect alternative for emergency heat during power outages. That's right...It's Y2k compliant!

There are a variety of models so you can select the comfort setting that best suits your needs. The thermostatically controlled model will automatically modulate to maintain your desired heat output, while the manually controlled model wallows you to select the heat setting and flame height you prefer. Fireplaces that are remote ready offer you the choice of four types of optional remote controls as well as the ability to operate the fireplace with a built-in variable manual control.

Accessories make the fireplace. Vanguard offers a broad choice of accessories and trip kits to match any decor. These options may be used with most of the Classic Hearth and Mini-Hearth models.
