Benefits of Gas Fireplaces
Although wood-burning fireplaces are useful, the cost of buying wood is expensive. Gas fireplaces, on the other hand, are easier to manage. When a gas fireplace is installed, the chimney can be placed in the most efficient location. There are also gas fireplaces that do not use a chimney. Wood burning fireplaces must have a flue, such as a stainless-steel chimney system. Also, the installation cost for a wood fireplace is more expensive.
Other benefits include:
- Safety – Gas fireplaces offer the best safety benefits to homeowners with the safety shutoff valve. This stops gas from leaking in the home.
- Convenience – Homeowners can light the fireplace by using a remote. Homeowners who use wood fireplaces must buy wood to warm the home.
- Savings – Gas fireplaces offer great energy efficiency. These units often feature a glass that stops air from traveling up the chimney when the fireplace is not being used. The glass helps you control the combustion. Wood fireplaces, however, are not very efficient because they let warm air travel out of the home when the fireplace is not used.
Overall, maintaining a gas fireplace is easier than maintaining a wood fireplace. There is no need to inspect the chimney for issues that could cause chimney fires.
Professional Gas Fireplace Installation Process
Before installing the fireplace unit, our expert Boise HVAC service technicians will build a platform. Next, the piping will be installed based on the manufacturer’s instructions. Once this task is complete, the gas and electric elements will be installed. Finally, our technicians will build a frame for your gas fireplace.
