19 Oct What You Need to Know About Gas Fireplaces?
Gas fireplaces, compared to old wood burning fireplaces, provide a cleanliness and convenience unparalleled. They also produce an appealing ambience with minimal effort and may be installed in multiple locations within a home. These fireplaces fueled by propane or natural gas can truly enhance your interior space and comfort. At Kozy Heat, we are your source for a quality array of gas fireplaces that provide cost-efficient heating and enhanced décor for your home.
Some of the benefits of gas fireplaces include:
Improved Energy Efficiency
Gas fireplaces operate at a higher level of efficiency than older, standard wood burning fireplaces of the past. You can also save on energy costs with these fireplaces by using them in the zones of your home in which you are living.
No Excessive Heat Loss
Open wood fireplace fires allow for excess loss of heat, unlike gas fireplace units which retain as much as 75% to 99% of the heat to be dispersed into the room.
Versatile Installation Options
With propane available or a natural gas connection, you can have a gas fireplace installed almost anywhere in your home, such as in the middle of a room, in a wall, beneath a window, or at floor level. The installer, knowing the standard gas fireplace dimensions and the available space in your home, can determine where and how a gas fireplace can be installed in your home.
Various Styles Available
There are many gas fireplace styles available, including everything from sleek and contemporary to traditional.
The best gas fireplace you can buy will come with a remote control and a button or switch on the unit that allows you to turn the fireplace on and off instantly. You won’t have to collect and chop wood, stoke a fire, and keep the fire going by adding wood.
Like Wood Without the Mess
A gas fireplace fire appears very similar to a wood burning fire, but without all the mess. There will be no smell of smoke and no cleanup required afterwards.
Some of the potential drawbacks of a gas fireplace are as follows:
Gas fireplaces require a venting system and a gas line run to the fireplace location. If you like the snap, crackle, and pop of a traditional wood burning fireplace, then you may not like the quiet operation of a gas fireplace.
