ADVANTAGES OF GAS FIREPLACES
Applications of Gas Fireplaces
A gas fireplace is a great option if you’re looking to add a fireplace into an already existing home. It can be very easily installed without having to go through the process of adding the chimney. Additionally, it’s also an excellent counterpart to a traditional fireplace, as it can be a free standing gas stove or a fireplace insert put right into an existing chimney.
In both cases, you’ve got a warm, cozy fire to watch, without the mess or maintenance. Adding a gas fireplace is an easy, yet effective, home improvement that you can enjoy for years.
Gas Fireplaces are Safe
With gas fueled fireplaces there are no open flames, sparks or fumes. This makes a gas fireplace and gas fireplace insert a great option if you have children or pets around. It’s also common for newer units to feature a timer that will automatically shut off after a certain time.
Gas Fireplaces are Easy to Use
Since the gas is generating the heat, you don’t have to deal with the hassle of collecting or chopping any firewood. Gas Fireplaces and Gas Fireplace Inserts can also be easily controlled with a simple switch.
Gas Fireplaces are Portable
Unlike traditional fireplaces, gas fireplaces don’t need a chimney. This means that they can be easily moved around to any area of your home.
Gas Fireplaces are Eco-Friendly
They produce far fewer emissions than fireplaces that burn wood.
Gas Fireplaces are Money Saving
Along with being relatively inexpensive to install, using gas to warm your home can save you up to 25% on your energy costs.
