Benefits of a Gas Fireplace

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 131

Buying and chopping wood, finding somewhere to store it and then dragging it inside when you want to have a fire can be nothing short of a pain. And that doesn't take into consideration getting the fire started and having ashes to clean up when you're done. It kind of takes away from the storybook idea of sitting in front of the fire with a hot cup of hot chocolate and a novel when you factor in all of the hassles.

Thankfully, as technology gets better and better, you have many options when it comes to having a fireplace, and a gas fireplace is a great alternative that gets rid of all the issues that keep you from actually having a fire on a regular basis.

Gas fireplaces are easy to operate; in fact you can usually turn it on or off with the press of a button. No more lugging wood in and trying to light the fire. Some even have a remote control, which means you can control the heat right from your chair. In addition a gas fireplace burns much cleaner flames than wood burning fireplaces and will leave much less soot and residue in your chimney, leading to much less air pollution.

Gas fireplaces are available in either inserts or freestanding units, so no matter what your budget, you will be sure to find an option that fits. Even if you don't think you'll be using it for a heat source, a gas fireplace makes a great choice if you're trying to add visual appeal to a room, but don't really want the hassle of a traditional fireplace. You can add a mantel that matches your style, as well as grates, screens and even fireplace tools for an authentic look if you like. It's a customizable, low hassle option that will fit just about anyone's needs.

Worried that your gas fireplace won't look the same as a traditional antique fireplace? Don't be. You can get a gas fireplace to match pretty much any decor in your house, whether you're looking for something modern or contemporary. You can add a fireplace screen that will match, and you'll find a large variety of decorative glass fireplace screens or even brass fireplace screens if that's more your style. Whatever you're looking for you'll find it.

If you're tired of cleaning soot and ashes, breaking your back chopping and lugging wood around to the point that you don't get any enjoyment out of your fireplace, then you should seriously consider what a gas fireplace can do for you and your home. With the ease of use, little to no cleanup and designs and style to fit practically any room or budget, you are sure to find a gas fireplace is a great addition to your home.
