5 Signs You Should Invest in a Gas Fireplace Conversion

If you currently have a wood-burning fireplace and are thinking of converting to a gas fireplace, there probably is a whole host of reasons.

Wood burning fireplaces are not as sought after in the current real estate market as they once were, but often times it is simply the atmosphere that the actual appearance the flames create, that have people wanting them.

Read more about some the signs you should invest in a gas fireplace conversion such as :

  • Market value
  • Cost savings
  • Pesky Irritants
  • Ban on burning wood

In today’s busy world people enjoy convenience and efficiency almost as much as they enjoy cost savings and dependability. With a gas fireplace conversion from a wood-burning fireplace you gain convenience by simple professional installation and simply clicking a remote to turn it on. You also enjoy the efficient use of heat and save on heating costs. 

Reason #1 Return on Investment, Cost savings

You will save on the cost of heating your home by turning down your thermostat cutting your furnace heat down thus cutting electric use down and heating your home with the gas fireplace. Gas costs less than electric use, and you could cut your heating costs by up to forty percent.

Reason #2 pesky irritants

If anyone in your home has allergies, smoke and dust sensitive or has asthma then a gas fireplace conversion could be a great solution for removing the irritants from the air for them. Wood smokes and creates lung and respiratory issues in individuals. Gas fireplaces remove these harmful irritants and create an inviting atmosphere for all to enjoy

Reason #3 Market value

With wood-burning fireplaces not being all the rage today when buying a home the exact opposite could be said about gas fireplaces. When you install a gas fireplace in your home you could see a rise in your home, market value up to twelve percent.

Reason #4 ban on wood-burning

Some areas have banned the use of wood-burning fireplaces like the Bay Area in California and Salt Lake City Utah, and the Environmental Protection Agency has already banned most of the wood-burning stoves and fireplace production because of new standards in air quality. By doing a gas fireplace conversion on your wood-burning counterpart you could save yourself the hassle upfront before your fireplace becomes obsolete anyway.

Reason #5 hate stacking, chopping, and hauling

If you simply don’t use your wood-burning fireplace because you don’t want to be bothered chopping, stacking and hauling the wood in during the cold months then converting to a gas fireplace is a great option. Gas fireplaces require little to no maintenance, and no wood is required. Simply click the on button and your good to go.

Breaking it down simply the clear signs you should invest in a gas fireplace conversion :

  • You could cut your heating costs by 40%
  • Wood smoke is an irritant to those with allergies
  • Gas fireplaces can increase the market value of your home up to 12%
  • The EPA is regulating and banning burning wood
  • You would like the beauty of a fireplace without all the work of wood

Placing a gas fireplace in your home could save you time, money and your health but still gives you the warmth and atmosphere you so desire. By replacing your wood-burning fireplace with a gas fireplace you have so much to gain and nothing to lose.

John G.

“Five stars--could not be happier!  Josh and Kyle were very professional, provided several options to improve performance of HVAC, no pressure or time constraints, worked efficiently, were able to explain in clear terms what they found, including when items were performing in fine fashion and nothing needed to be done.  Thanks for a happy camper”


“Service was outstanding from the time of arrival which you could track arrival time live on a website link they send you so you know when they will arrive. Technical knowledge was very high, quick and efficient Kyle and his partner both handled the install of a Sensi Predict as if it was a walk in the park. I highly recommend Kyle from Nice Heating & Air for all HVAC issues and for new installs, him and his team are an amazing company and will think of them first if any issues arise in the future for sure....”

Andrew Baker.

“Professional and polite. Excellent communication throughout the maintenance visit. Definitely recommend.”


“Rolando Medrano was very professional and followed the CDC protocol of 6 feet social distance and had a mask and put disposable shoe covers before entering the house. He made sure to address all of our issues and provided answers for all our questions. He came on time and called before he came to update on timing and his status! He was a great help!”

Mike Richardson.

“Highly recommend Nice Home Services for your HVAC needs. Have been member of their annual maintenance plan for three years now and been extremely pleased with their approach to business. They are professional, knowledgeable, and relatable. The service specialists take their time to fully diagnose the issue and explain the situation in a way that is easy to understand. Never had an instance where they try to push product and instead look for ways to recommend how to save you money. Need anything done on your home's HVAC, call the folks at Nice Home Services and know you're making the right choice.”

“Love , Love the NICE Heating & Air company for their kind & trustworthy technicians, their unbeatable price & overall knowledge they’ve amazed me every time with their fabulous job on my house, I’ll recommend them without hesitations, try this company you won’t regret for sure.”

Richard Nowinski.

“Dionte and his helper (Josh) did a superb job with the installation. The result is both functional and as cosmetically pleasing as the ideal water heater installation can be. They were VERY careful moving the old one out and the new one in so as to assure no damage was initiated neither to the heater nor to our dwelling. He explained his intended design prior to execution and executed it flawlessly. This was followed by a comprehensive explanation of the functional options available through the control panel and Ipad app. Cleanup at conclusion of the install was appropriate and comprehensive. This team represented both Nice Heating and Rheem VERY positively!”

Kimberly Mason.

“I purchased my HVAC unit a year ago along with a Cozy Club maintenance plan. It's been running great and the customer service team is always quick to respond to questions.

I'm very happy with my experience with Nice.”

N. England.

“I can't speak highly enough of this company. I requested an appointment, and it was scheduled for the next day. The technician was polite, honest, and a pure delight to work with. He didn't try to overcharge or tell me to replace something I didn't need to. He made service recommendations that were in line with industry standard prices so I could make an informed decision as he went about his service visit. Would recommend and will be using them again in the future. ”
