Wood fireplaces are highly enjoyable in winter, but there are many inconveniences that come from burning wood inside your home, which include spending more time providing proper maintenance and the high costs of operation. However, many homeowners are afraid to make the transition to a gas fireplace due to misinformation.
If you’re thinking about installing a gas fireplace, here are 5 good reasons why you should definitely make the change:
Turning your wood fireplace into a gas fireplace is not as costly as you might think. Yes, the initial cost of installation can hurt a bit, but just think about the many years of saving and enjoyment to come.
Operating a gas fireplace is not only easy but also inexpensive. On average, a natural gas fireplace costs less than 20 cents an hour to enjoy. If you do the math on how much a set of wood logs cost and how much they’re going to last… well, we think the advantage between having a gas log set and burning wood is pretty clear.
It doesn’t matter where your fireplace is located at, gas fireplaces are really easy to use and can be installed in any area of the house where you want to enjoy a little bit of warmth. Gas logs sets, besides looking good, can be modulated to the your needs, so that if you wish to have higher temperatures on a room or vice versa, you can turn up or down the thermostat.
Gas logs look like real wood logs and can fool the eye, but because they’re ceramic logs they will never produce ashes, which means that there is no risk of having a fire due to fire sparks.
One of the main differences you’ll find using gas logs instead of burning wood, is that with a gas log set you will have a constant heat supply without losing heat as it normally happens with wood logs.
