If you are thinking about adding a natural gas fireplace to your home, you are about to make a great decision. What better way to make the most of cold weather than sitting by the warmth of a fire? What you will be glad to know though, is that there is a lot more to it than that.
Understanding the Advantages of Natural Gas
Lack of Sparks – One of the most dangerous aspects of having a traditional fireplace is the sparks or hot embers which can lead to a house fire.
Steady Heat – While the roar of a traditional fire can be nice, the inability to regulate a steady and constant heat is less than desirable.
Lack of Chimney – Not only are chimneys messy, they pose their own safety hazard. Plus, it takes ongoing cleaning and maintenance to make sure that your chimney continues to function as it needs to.
Installation Cost – If you do not already have a fireplace installed, you may be surprised at the price difference. Installing a natural gas fireplace is a much more cost-effective alternative to installing a standard wood burning fireplace.
Safer for Children – While children should never be around a heat course unattended, a natural wood fireplace is a safer alternative. You kids and pets can be near the heat source without the need for an open flame or even concern for sparks or hot embers.
Energy Saving – Did you know that having a natural gas fireplace can help save you as much as 25% on your energy bill? Enjoy a more consistent heat while paying less to keep your home heated.
While there are plenty of other benefits to having a natural gas fireplace, these are some of the top reasons.
