Gas Fireplaces: Clean and Cost-efficient
The right fireplace can create a comforting ambiance in a home or business, and if you’re in the market for a new one, it can be difficult to choose from the many varieties that are available. Here at Starfire Direct, we have a huge selection of direct-vent gas fireplaces, which offer many benefits. Before making a final decision, learn about what our gas fireplaces have to offer.
1. You Won’t Have to Fret About Firewood
Anyone who has ever relied on a traditional fireplace or wood stove knows firsthand just how hard it is to chop, haul, and cure enough firewood to keep the fire burning on a regular basis. Chopping the wood yourself is a lot of work and likely not possible for business owners who are hard at work on other projects. Purchasing wood is also an option, but it can be very costly, and it’s still time consuming to check the fire and keep it going throughout the day.
Lastly, wood-burning fireplaces release a lot of smoke, which can damage the local air quality. For this reason, they have already been strictly regulated or banned in many areas. By choosing from our collection of stylish gas fireplaces, you won’t have to deal with the hassle of getting firewood or worry about harming the environment. You can light the fire by simply flipping a switch, and you can extinguish it just as easily.
2. No Fluctuating Temperatures
When you add logs to a traditional fireplace, the fire will grow very hot and remain that way for a short time. Then, as the logs begin to burn down, you will slowly lose heat. Unless you hire an attendant to stand by the fireplace and keep it going all day, this results in the temperature of your home or business fluctuating. No one wants to be sweating one minute and freezing the next. Gas fireplaces burn at the same level as long as they are turned, resulting in a steady temperature.
3. A Cost-efficient Choice
Whether you’re a homeowner or a business owner, you need to save money. Experts have estimated that a gas fireplace can save you up to 25 percent on your energy bill when compared to using a heater alone.
Of course, this figure only represents energy costs, and it doesn’t take into account the time, money, and physical energy it takes to run a traditional wood-burning fireplace. Your savings in all areas will really add up over time.
4. No Safety Worries
Not only are gas fireplaces free of dangerous emissions that can dirty the air you breathe, but they also don’t emit sparks or embers, resulting in a reduced risk of fires when compared to traditional fireplaces.
5. Legal In All Areas
As previously mentioned, wood-burning stoves have been banned in many areas, and as the environment becomes more of a concern, they will likely continue their widespread ban. You don’t want to go to all the trouble of purchasing and installing a fireplace that might be illegal in a few years. Choosing a gas variety will protect you from this troubling scenario.
