Efficient & Convenient Gas Fireplaces, Stoves & Inserts

A gas fireplace, stove or insert can bring a lot of the benefits and enjoyment of a more traditional, wood-burning stove, without a lot of the hassle. While it’s hard not to love the crackle and smell of a wood-burning fire, owners of those fireplaces and stoves have to embrace the work involved: stacking wood, building fires, and cleaning up soot and ash afterward.

With gas appliances, the only work required from use to use will typically be turning it on and turning it off. For homeowners who are consistently on the go, these appliances can be a great choice.

The numbers in which these appliances are purchased testifies to their popularity: According to figures from the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association, 72 percent of the heating appliances shipped in the U.S. in 2012 were gas appliances. Homeowners clearly really enjoy the convenience and efficiency of gas-burning appliances, so if you think you may sell your home, installing one could be beneficial.

If you already have a fireplace or stove, but it’s showing signs of the end, you can get an impressive efficiency boost by replacing it with a new unit. Modern fireplaces and stoves are built to be markedly efficient, wasting far less fuel and producing lower levels of harmful emissions. An insert is perhaps the most convenient way to upgrade an old appliance — they can be retrofitted right into your current fireplace or stove.

The NFP gas-certified and MO propane gas-certified technicians at Advanced Chimney Techniques can talk with you about your heating needs, your space, and your preferences, and help you choose the right unit for your home. Send us an email or give us a call!
