After devastating wildfires ravaged our countryside, many are returning to the area to rebuild their homes. Many of our customers lost all or part of their beloved homes and are trying to figure out what to do now. Reconstruction is difficult, especially when emotions are raw and it’s impossible to recreate what you loved and lost.
When we’re asked by customers both long-time and new about fireplaces, we have one recommendation and that’s gas. When you can’t decide what type of fire unit to add to your home, you can’t go wrong with gas. You won’t deal with the smoky smells of a wood fire or the danger that often comes along with a wood fire. Instead, gas fires offer 100 percent convenience, the highest levels of safety and efficiency. They are also affordable to purchase and install.
Wood V. Gas Fires
Which fireplace is best? When you burn wood, it’s important to have a ready supply of wood that is properly seasoned for burning. Many homeowners choose wood because they have a wood supply on their property. If you don’t, you have to buy wood from a local supplier, somehow ensure it is properly seasoned, and then haul it home.
When you burn wood, you also have to deal with splitting, storing, hauling, and lighting your wood. Then there is ash to remove and store, and a chimney coated with soot and creosote that will need frequent cleanings. Gas needs none of this. The fuel for your gas fireplace is piped in by your natural gas company. The fire lights immediately at the push of a button, and the flame and temperature are controlled precisely with remote control. Because it burns so cleanly, gas fires release almost no soot and creosote at all. They need less frequent maintenance appointments and repairs. When it comes to convenience and safety, gas wins overall.
