Gas fireplaces are becoming increasingly popular in households throughout the St. Louis area because of the substantial benefits that ensue after installation. These types of fireplaces will increase the effectiveness of your homes’ heating, making your house a cozy haven during the winter months. One of the most popular and efficient products available is the direct-vented gas fireplace. This fireplace takes outside air to support the system and funnels the same air back outside without ever consuming warm house air, or effecting household appliances. Heat loss becomes virtually nonexistent, insuring you for a comfortable house temperature at all times.
Gas fireplaces are becoming increasingly popular for a variety of reasons:
- No wood is necessary
- It is simple to turn on and off
- Heat is distributed instantly
- Can keep you warm during and electrical power outage
- Vast energy savings on bills
- Safe and easy to use
Gas fireplaces are connected directly to the gas supply at your home. These fireplaces are able to burn and heat at anytime as long as the gas supply in the house is still intact and working properly. A gas fireplace is a great option to someone who is ready to stop cleaning ashes and carrying wood and is ready to enjoy the heat of a fire. Some of the gas fireplaces are able to have custom remote systems connected that allow the unit to be turned on by a handy remote control.
There are three types of gas fireplaces available at this current point in time:
- Vented Fireplaces
- Unvented Fireplaces
- Fireplace Inserts
