Advantages of Gas Fireplaces

Advantages of Gas Fireplaces

As HVAC and heating tech has evolved, one type of installation hasn't been left behind. We're talking about fireplaces! Day & Nite Plumbing and Heating will help you find a fireplace that suits your home. Whether you're looking for a modern style or a throwback look, we've got what you need.

But is there even a reason to opt for a fireplace in this day and age? We think so. Gas fireplaces actually offer a variety of benefits. Let's take a look at the kinds of advantages you'll notice once you have one of these beautiful fixtures installed.

No Worrying About Firewood

A great thing about a natural gas fireplace is that you don't have to stock up on firewood. Instead, you just get to experience the nice warming feeling that a fireplace has to offer without a need to do some extra chores. A lack of logs also means no sparks and a constant heat supply. A gas fireplace can be a beautiful, functional addition to your home.

Less Expensive Installation

Installing a gas fireplace costs less than the installation of a wood fireplace. Installation is cheaper and you don't have to worry about chopping wood. What's not to like about this fireplace option?

More Flexibility

Installation isn't just less expensive. It can also be more flexible. There are more installation options available to people who choose a gas fireplace. You may not even need a traditional chimney as you would for a wood fireplace. A room that might not have been suited to a wood fireplace could possibly accommodate a gas-powered one.

Ease of Use

As we mentioned, you don't have to gather up wood and light it up to experience the warmth of a fireplace. For a natural gas fireplace, you just have to flip a switch. The room will start warming up in no time and you don't have to worry about it burning out. Some types of gas fireplaces even offer a remote, much like a TV remote, that makes it easy to turn this fixture off and on.

Safer than Other Fireplace Options

We think that gas fireplaces are especially ideal for homes with children and pets. These options are safer than some other fireplaces that can shoot out sparks. Plus, a gas fireplace is easy to turn on and off quickly. If you're worried about your child or dog around a fireplace, you can simply turn off a gas-powered one.

Energy Savings

Depending on the size of the room and how high you would normally turn up the heat, gas fireplaces can actually provide some significant energy savings. Much like upgraded HVAC equipment, a new gas fireplace can ensure that you see a sizable drop in your utility bills.

You Can Still Get the Wood Fireplace Look

Even with all of the advantages a gas fireplace offers, you might still want the look of a classic wood fireplace. Fortunately, our gas fireplaces can offer a similar look, with authentic looking logs, sand, and flame. They can even offer the smell of burning wood! See if one of our gas fireplaces suits your home today.
