If you have been considering a new fireplace for your home, there are some excellent reasons to choose a gas fireplace instead of a wood burning fireplace. There are many advantages to having a gas fireplace, including saving on energy bills on chilly nights. Although spring is here, the nights can still be chilly, and a gas fireplace could be keeping you toasty warm.
Advantages of No Wood
There are a lot of advantages to not having wood burning in your fireplace. First, you don’t have to worry about locating, purchasing, or hauling wood for your fireplace. Just a flip of the switch and your fireplace is going strong. Another advantage to not having wood to deal with is that your fire will never go out until you turn the fireplace off.
Gas fireplaces also have more consistent heat output, because the flames are regulated internally rather than by the wood in the fire. When you have a gas fireplace, you also don’t have to worry about sparks or ash flying out of the fireplace, which can cause damage, injury, and messes to clean.
There are some other advantages to gas over wood fireplaces. Often, with gas fireplaces, you have a venting system rather than a chimney – which means less maintenance and cleaning costs. You can also save on your energy bill by getting a gas fireplace with a built-in blower so the consistent heat is pumped out into the room, knocking off the chill without running your furnace.
