Valor RetroFire Gas Insert Fireplace Review

Why choose the RetroFire Gas Insert by Valor?

The RetroFire is a beautiful, radiant, gas fireplace insert that can be installed in your Calgary, Etobicoke, Oakville, or Burlington home in just one day. To be more specific, it's more like three hours when you've got experts like us. You might be thinking, "What's special about the RetroFire? Can't all gas insert fireplaces be installed that fast?" You're right, they can be, however, the RetroFire was designed to be a little smaller, making it fit into pretty much any existing gas fireplace cavity, like the wood fireplace or outdated gas fireplace you may have right now. This makes the RetroFire a safe bet for your home heating solutions if you're in a chilly situation.

Style options for the RetroFire

Don't confuse the quick installation of the RetroFire with not having options. You can choose between Traditional Logs or Driftwood to make your fireplace realistic. Next, you can choose your fireplace fret, picking from Ventana Black, Contemporary Vintage Iron, and Traditional Black Fret. You have a ton of combinations that you can pick from, so you're bound to love one of them.
