Benefits of a Gas Fireplace in Rockland County, NY

Monday, March 11th, 2013

When considering heating options for your home, you may have to decide between different types of fireplaces. While you may enjoy the pleasant crackling of a wood burning stove or fireplace, you may also want something cleaner, more efficient, and with less hassle than cutting or acquiring wood. A gas fireplace is an excellent alternative to conventional heating options. Call Design Air, Inc. today for comprehensive gas fireplace installation in Rockland County, NY.

There are a number of benefits to using a gas fireplace. Let’s take a look at some of them:

  • Style. Many gas fireplaces feature elegant brick backgrounds and light accents. They seamlessly blend into your home, while providing the warmth and comfort of a traditional fireplace. You will have a much more diverse range of fireplace options if you choose gas.
  • No chimney. The cost of installing a chimney to accompany your wood fireplace can be substantial. A gas fireplace usually has a direct venting system. However, if you have an existing chimney, you can find gas fireplace inserts that work with your existing chimney.
  • Energy efficient. While gas is known to be an efficient fuel, gas fireplace efficiency depends on your utility bills. Some companies charge significantly different amounts for gas and electricity.
  • Remote control. Want to change your temperature from across the room? Remote control of your gas fireplace is a great convenience. No need to traipse outside for another log. Warmer temperatures are available with just a click of the button.
  • Ease of operation. Your natural gas fireplace is as easy to turn on and off as a television set.
  • Warmer. Many gas fireplaces feature a blower that helps circulate the warm air so that it can more evenly warm the home and not just heat a single room. Many of these are also made with quiet fan technology for quieter operation.  
  • Ease of installation. Gas fireplaces are generally easier to install than wood-fueled ones, and are a great option if you have an existing gas line for a gas furnace or boiler.
  • No creosote. Creosote build-up is common in wood fireplaces. It can accumulate to such an extent as to reduce airflow, and even cause fires.

Whatever your reasons for choosing a gas fireplace, the benefits are clear. If you think a gas fireplace may be the heating solution for you, call Design Air, Inc. today for a Rockland County, NY gas fireplace installation service.
