You may think that since the winter is over, you won’t be using your fireplace for several months. However, there are some great reasons to keep using your gas fireplace in the spring months. As the weather warms, you may use it less – but in the initial months of spring, your fireplace can help you keep heating bills down and enjoying romantic evenings by the fire.
Chilly Spring Nights
Even though the warmer weather is here, the nights are still somewhat chilly. Your gas fireplace is a great way to stay warm without turning up the heat at night. If you have a gas fireplace in more than one room, light the fireplaces after the sun goes down and turn on ceiling fans to circulate the warm air throughout your home. This can help prevent turning on the heat at all during these months.
Of course, never leave your fireplace burning while you are sleeping. But with heated blankets or warm comforters, you may not need the heat after you retire either. Even if you delay turning on the heat for only a few hours, it can save you a lot of money on energy costs.
Everyone feels more romantic in the springtime. The winter blues are over, and you are feeling more like yourself again. A gas fireplace combined with some soft music and wine can create a very romantic evening at home. Enjoy the fireplace while you can before it gets so warm in the summer months that you don’t want to light it.
