Gas Fireplace FAQs
Considering installing a gas log fireplace in your Springfield-area home? Here are some of the benefits of choosing a gas fireplace over a traditional wood fireplace:
- Realistic looking – Modern gas log fireplaces can look incredibly realistic and aesthetically pleasing.
- Cost-effective – Natural gas is a relatively inexpensive form of energy.
- Eco-friendly – Gas logs produce fewer emissions because they burn natural gas or propane.
- Safer than burning wood – Wood-burning fireplaces come with a lot of safety risks, unlike gas fireplaces.
- Fast and easy to use – Gas logs are incredibly simple and can be lit with just the touch of a button or lighting a match.
No, you don’t. This only directly applies to an unvented gas log system, not to a vented gas log system. Vented gas systems still require some sort of vent, but it does not need to be a chimney.
All gas fireplace systems, vented and unvented, are completely safe for pets. Absolutely no fumes, particles, or other air pollutants are released into the home.
One of the major advantages of a gas fireplace system is its energy efficiency. Wood-burning fireplaces need a large amount of fuel (wood) to produce only a moderate amount of radiant heat. They also produce sooty carbon byproducts that are bad for the environment.
Gas fireplace systems are very energy-efficient. All of the fuel they burn is directly converted into heat and light. Gas log fireplaces only require a small amount of fuel to produce a large amount of radiant heat.
