Gas fireplaces can offer a variety of benefits; they are:
- easy to maintain
- significantly less messy
- very cost effective
Also, gas fireplaces offer a constant heat supply, unlike traditional wood burning fireplaces which require stoking and feeding. Safe, easy and convenient.
Safety is a big part of this as well, removing the the ash and spark factor. Keep in mind there is also no need for a chimney and the associated costs that come with chimney care and dangerous creosote buildup.
A large convenience for homeowners is that more and more gas fireplace units have a remote included with the install.
Overall gas fireplaces are easy to maintain, significantly easier to clean up and are safer for pets, family and your home. Doesn't mean they don't need TLC.
Occasionally, gas fireplaces need to be checked by a professional (recommended each year before use).
