Less Maintenance

If your family is tired of having to do these chores, converting your old fireplace to a gas stove insert is a wonderful idea. This allows you to relax and enjoy daily fires without all the work. The only maintenance you will need is a professional inspection service appointment with Blue Ridge Chimney Services.

More Convenience

If you have not used your fireplace as much because of difficulties in the past with getting a good fire going, a gas fireplace is a great option for you. To start a fire, all you have to do is press a button on a remote control device. You can also turn the fire off with the remote control, which means you will not have to wait for the fire to extinguish.

Increased Energy Efficiency

As much as you enjoy fires in your fireplace, it might not provide as much heat as you need. The energy efficiency rating of a wood-burning fireplace can be as low as 15 percent. Blue Ridge Chimney Services can install a new gas stove insert with a higher efficiency rating to give you more heat.
