You will be amazed at how much warmth is provided to your home by your new gas fireplace. This is especially true if you have been using an older wood-burning masonry fireplace. Traditional fireplaces have very low energy efficiency ratings. This is because most of the heat produced by the fire escapes out of the chimney. Many models of gas fireplace inserts are equipped with fans that circulate heated air throughout the room. Depending on the size of your existing fireplace, a gas insert can heat an area from 1,000 to 3,000 square feet.
Save money on heating bills:
One of the biggest advantages of choosing a gas fireplace insert is using it for zone heating. Turning up the gas to heat the room you are in allows you to lower the thermostat in the rest of your home, according to HouseLogic. Zone heating greatly decreases your utility bills during the winter. You will also spend less money on maintenance and repairs. Just remember to have your fireplace and chimney professionally serviced once a year.
Burn cleaner fires:
With energy efficiency ratings from 65 to 99 percent, gas fireplace inserts produce clean-burning fires, with very little pollution or smoke. Also, you need not worry about any ash or creosote residue to clean up. If green living is important to you, a gas fireplace insert is a great choice for heating your home this winter!
