There’s no doubt that having a fireplace in your home can be a warm, enjoyable, and cozy experience. But many people either don’t have a traditional fireplace with chimneys in their homes, or they don’t want the hassle of storing firewood and cleaning the hearth. In that case, you may consider a gas fireplace in your home instead. You can enjoy such a fireplace year round, as even in the summer, those flames give off a characteristic ambiance you may crave.
Here are some great reasons to invest in a gas fireplace in Metro Detroit.
Gas Fireplaces Are Realistic-looking
Who says you have to compromise the appeal associated with a traditional wood-burning fireplace? With a gas fireplace, the artificial wood looks very realistic and still brings a cozy ambiance to any space. Enjoy the look of a wood-burning fireplace with the realistic ceramic logs and embers inherent in gas fireplaces.
Gas Fireplaces Are Energy Efficient
Gas-burning fireplaces beat out other fuel types for a few reasons. First, you have full control of how much fuel you use at once, easily adjusting the amount of gas you use. Plus, you can turn it on and off with a simple switch. Gas fireplaces also happen to be more environmentally friendly than traditional fireplaces since the burning of wood or other plant-based material generates no smoke.
Gas Fireplaces Are Easy to Use
Gas fireplaces are easy to use and can be operated by anyone. There’s no special knowledge that comes with operating such a fireplace, as the inserts eliminate the need to light and maintain a real fire. As you know, this can be very time-consuming and messy.
On the other hand, for wood-burning fireplaces, it takes experience to strategically position the wood, ignite it and allow for adequate airflow. It can also be difficult to manipulate the level of heat output. But with a gas fireplace, you just flip a switch to ignite it and then easily adjust the temperature as needed.
Gas Fireplaces Are Low-maintenance
Minimal maintenance and very little upkeep are necessary between uses with a gas fireplace. No need to stoke the fire, give it constant attention, or shovel out ashes and wood debris afterward. The gas insert creates less mess and less cleaning.
Gas Fireplaces Still Work During Power Outages
Unlike an electric fireplace or your main home heat source, gas fireplaces still work in a power outage, giving off much-needed light and warmth.
Gas Fireplaces Don’t Produce Smoke or Embers
You may love the cozy warmth and ambiance of a traditional fireplace but you may be sensitive to the smell of smoke. In that case, a gas fireplace is ideal because there are no sparks, smoke, burning embers, or fumes to worry about. This means it’s a safer option for households with children and pets.
