So, why are so many converting to gas fireplaces, stoves, and inserts? Well, for one thing, they function very efficiently, allowing more heat to enter your living space. This not only makes things more comfortable and cozy on cold, winter days, it lowers your energy bills, too! Turn down the heat, and turn on your gas fireplace for a warm and toasty evening, guaranteed.

Another big advantage of gas appliances is how easy they are to use. No hauling wood, no building or maintaining a fire, and no constantly adjusting your damper. Just flip the switch and you are all set. Ready to call it a night? Flip it off, and go to bed. It’s simple, efficient, and perfect for those with a busy schedule.

Along with this, there is basically no mess involved with gas units. Wood-burning options leave behind ash and little pieces of wood, which requires a lot more maintenance overall. If you want to keep your space neat and tidy, while still enjoying the comforts of a fireplace, this is the way to do it.

Finally, there are many stylish designs you can invest in, so you won’t need to worry about finding the right fit for your decor.

Dangers Of Gas Leaks

It is impossible to identify this gas without the help of a carbon monoxide detector. An incorrectly installed appliance could easily cause gas leak into your living space, and any damages can also trigger similar issues. This is a major reason why an annual inspection is vital to the health of your appliance!

Since carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless, installing a detector throughout your home is very important. If one goes off, you should leave the property immediately and call proper authorities who can safely assess the situation. Also, be aware of the common symptoms associated with the exposure of carbon monoxide such as nausea, dizziness, headaches, chest pain, and confusion.
