Gas Fireplaces

Gas fireplaces are popular because gas fireplaces offer a safe, convenient fireplace “experience” for those who want to be able to cozy up next to a warm fireplace without having to worry about fireplace sparks, hauling logs, or increased indoor air pollution. Plus, you never have to worry about fly away sparks and dangerous embers with a gas fireplace, so they offer a safer fireplace experience than traditional open fireplaces.

The Benefits of Gas Fireplaces

If you are considering a gas fireplace, you are not alone. There are many reasons that gas fireplaces are popular alternatives to traditional wood-burning fireplaces and wood burning inserts.

For instance:

  • Gas fireplaces are much easier to use. Instead of having to chop and haul wood, gas fireplaces are turned on and off with the flip of a switch.
  • Gas fireplaces are safer for pets and children. Because there are no fly away sparks, floating embers or sudden flame licks, gas fireplaces are safer for kids and pets.
  • New gas fireplaces can often be controlled via remote control and have adjustable heat controls, so you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your chair to get a fire “roaring.”
  • Some gas fireplace models have blowers, which helps circulate warm air throughout the house, giving you more heat for your money.
  • You do not need a chimney to have a gas fireplace installed. Because gas fireplaces use venting systems, you can install a gas fireplace in a home that doesn’t already have a chimney.
  • Gas fireplaces are more energy efficient than traditional wood burning fireplaces.

Now, while there are many benefits to choosing a gas fireplace, that doesn’t mean that gas fireplaces are the right choice for everyone. For those who want the traditional, rustic experience of a wood burning fireplace, a gas fireplace just won’t do. Not only will it not provide the same smell, sound and feel of a traditional fireplace, it won’t provide the same rustic workout. In addition, gas fireplaces often cannot be used as long as wood burning fireplaces, and they can be much more expensive to operate (depending on the price of natural gas in your area).

Professional Gas Fireplace Installation Services

If you are considering having a gas fireplace installed, it is vital that you call certified, experienced fireplace professionals. Although gas fireplaces are safer because no “wild” fire burns, you still want to make sure that whomever is installing your gas fireplace understands how to properly choose, place, vent and maintain it. An improperly vented gas fireplace could introduce dangerous emissions into your home, exposing your family to risk.
