Why Install a Gas Fireplace

What are the benefits of gas fireplaces?

Less Maintenance and Less Cost than Wood Burning Fireplaces

Because gas fireplaces don’t produce ashes, sparks, or creosote, they require less effort to clean. Plus, there is no need to chop firewood. The annual cost of having a gas fireplace is three to four times less than the cost of a wood burning model—although the cost of installation is comparable.

Safe and Convenient

While the tempered glass means radiant heat warms up the room, the screen barrier protects children and pets from getting too burned. Rather than purchasing or chopping firewood and stacking it, you need only use the remote control to start your fire. And, of course, there is no creosote build-up, which comes from burning wood.

Saves Energy Costs and Benefits the Environment

There are fewer emissions from a gas fireplace than from a wood burning model. Because cold air can enter through the chimney--required for a wood burning fireplace but not a gas model—gas fireplaces can be more efficient at heating the room.
