Gas fireplaces, inserts, stoves, and more are becoming more and more popular in today’s world. Being easy to use and low maintenance makes them an ideal option for busy homeowners all around the world! Ready to learn more? Keep reading to find out how owning a gas appliance can benefit you!
Convenience You Deserve
For homeowners everywhere, the dream of owning a fireplace is all too common. Unfortunately, wood-burning options take up a lot of time and effort. They constantly need to be refueled, building fires takes up a lot of time, and the clean-up afterwards can be exhausting! Fireplaces are supposed to offer you the opportunity to relax, not increase your workload.
That’s why gas units are such a great choice. They turn on with the push of a button or flip of a switch, and that’s all there is to it! Some even come with remote controls! Simply relax by a warm fireplace without dealing with any of the hassle, mess, or stress.
Afraid you’ll miss the aesthetic that more traditional fireplaces have to offer? No problem! Many gas appliances come with gas logs that make the entire unit look more authentic and greatly increase the overall appearance of the room. You get everything you want when you choose a gas fireplace, insert, or stove for your home!
Gas fireplaces (and especially gas inserts) are known for their large capability of producing enough heat for the entire room. They heat quickly and easily and, once it’s going, there is no need to refuel and tend to an open fire.
Another advantage when it comes to heating is consistency. With wood-burning options, flames will die and need to be nurtured back up every so often. They also take quite some time to get going! With gas appliances, you simply flip a switch and you have consistent heat for as long as you would like. It doesn’t get more ideal than that!
Scheduling Annual Inspections
With all of the advantages gas fireplaces bring, you may be wondering if annual inspections are still necessary. The answer is yes! Just because these appliances burn cleaner and easier does not mean your chimney isn’t exposed to potential harmful substances. And remember – if the debris is not very visible it doesn’t mean it isn’t there!
You will also want to ensure that your system is venting properly. Improper air flow can lead to exposure to harmful toxins and increase your risk for a chimney fire. Avoid corrosion, health issues, decay, and more by investing in regular chimney care all year long!
