Gas Heating Appliances

Thanks to the profusion of gas heating appliances on the market, the chimney and fireplace industry now has as much to do with convenient remote controls and realistic-looking ceramic logs as it does with hauling wood and shoveling coal. We’re happy to report that gas fireplaces and gas stoves are better-looking, easier to operate, and better performing than they ever have been. If you haven’t had a good look at a gas heating appliance lately, we suggest you take another look. We think you’re going to want to pull up a chair in front of one and stay a while. With 25 years of experience riding the waves of fireplace trends, Ace Chimney Sweeps, Inc. is well qualified to advise you on the gas appliance that will work best in your home—whether you’re looking for heat or ambiance or both.

Advantages Of Gas Appliances

There are lots of advantages to having a gas heating appliance, as opposed to a wood-burning one. Here are just a few off the top of our head. We could go on … and on…

  • Constant, consistent heat: A gas fireplace has a constant heat supply unlike a wood fireplace.
  • No hauling or chopping wood or shoveling ash: With a gas fireplace you will never have to buy or chop firewood, and because there are no logs, there will be no ashes or sparks for you to clean up or worry about.
  • Energy savings: A gas fireplace can save you at least 25% on your energy bill.
  • Convenient and easy to use. A gas fireplace can be turned on and off with the flip of a switch. Some natural gas fireplaces even come with a remote control similar to a TV remote, making it easy to operate for anyone in the family.
  • Safer: Mother Nature will smile upon you for using a gas fireplace, which doesn’t release smoke or particles into the air or into your home. Not only is a gas fireplace safer for the environment, but it’s also safer for children and pets since it is controlled and there are no flyaway sparks or flames.
  • No chimney or fireplace to clean or maintain: A gas fireplace usually has a venting system that doesn’t require a chimney. And unlike a wood-burning fireplace that needs to be cleaned along with the chimney, a gas fireplace doesn’t.

5 Gas Appliance Safety Tips

1. After turning it off, wait for your gas appliance and glass panel to cool down before allowing anyone to get near it.
2. Warn all visitors that your fireplace’s glass panel gets really hot.
3. Be especially careful to supervise children around the appliance. Talk about fireplace and stove safety with your children, and consider installing a physical barrier to restrict children’s access to a fireplace or stove. You may also want to install a switch lock to prevent children from turning on the gas fireplace.
4. Always read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the safe use and maintenance of your hearth appliance.
5. Protect people from touching your hot heating appliance by guarding it with a safety screen.
