5 Signs You Should Invest in a Gas Fireplace Conversion

If you currently have a wood-burning fireplace and are thinking of converting to a gas fireplace, there probably is a whole host of reasons.

Wood burning fireplaces are not as sought after in the current real estate market as they once were, but often times it is simply the atmosphere that the actual appearance the flames create, that have people wanting them.

Read more about some the signs you should invest in a gas fireplace conversion such as :

  • Market value
  • Cost savings
  • Pesky Irritants
  • Ban on burning wood

In today’s busy world people enjoy convenience and efficiency almost as much as they enjoy cost savings and dependability. With a gas fireplace conversion from a wood-burning fireplace you gain convenience by simple professional installation and simply clicking a remote to turn it on. You also enjoy the efficient use of heat and save on heating costs. 

Reason #1 Return on Investment, Cost savings

You will save on the cost of heating your home by turning down your thermostat cutting your furnace heat down thus cutting electric use down and heating your home with the gas fireplace. Gas costs less than electric use, and you could cut your heating costs by up to forty percent.

Reason #2 pesky irritants

If anyone in your home has allergies, smoke and dust sensitive or has asthma then a gas fireplace conversion could be a great solution for removing the irritants from the air for them. Wood smokes and creates lung and respiratory issues in individuals. Gas fireplaces remove these harmful irritants and create an inviting atmosphere for all to enjoy

Reason #3 Market value

With wood-burning fireplaces not being all the rage today when buying a home the exact opposite could be said about gas fireplaces. When you install a gas fireplace in your home you could see a rise in your home, market value up to twelve percent.

Reason #4 ban on wood-burning

Some areas have banned the use of wood-burning fireplaces like the Bay Area in California and Salt Lake City Utah, and the Environmental Protection Agency has already banned most of the wood-burning stoves and fireplace production because of new standards in air quality. By doing a gas fireplace conversion on your wood-burning counterpart you could save yourself the hassle upfront before your fireplace becomes obsolete anyway.

Reason #5 hate stacking, chopping, and hauling

If you simply don’t use your wood-burning fireplace because you don’t want to be bothered chopping, stacking and hauling the wood in during the cold months then converting to a gas fireplace is a great option. Gas fireplaces require little to no maintenance, and no wood is required. Simply click the on button and your good to go.

Breaking it down simply the clear signs you should invest in a gas fireplace conversion :

  • You could cut your heating costs by 40%
  • Wood smoke is an irritant to those with allergies
  • Gas fireplaces can increase the market value of your home up to 12%
  • The EPA is regulating and banning burning wood
  • You would like the beauty of a fireplace without all the work of wood

Placing a gas fireplace in your home could save you time, money and your health but still gives you the warmth and atmosphere you so desire. By replacing your wood-burning fireplace with a gas fireplace you have so much to gain and nothing to lose.

Barb N.

“I purchased my HVAC unit a year ago along with a Cozy Club maintenance plan. It's been running great and the customer service team is always quick to respond to questions. Today Rolando M. came by for the maintenance check and, as usual, he was neat, professional and maintained the COVID rules. He was also very nice, living up to the company name. I'm very happy with my experience with Nice.”

N. England.

“I can't speak highly enough of this company. I requested an appointment, and it was scheduled for the next day. The technician was polite, honest, and a pure delight to work with. He didn't try to overcharge or tell me to replace something I didn't need to. He made service recommendations that were in line with industry standard prices so I could make an informed decision as he went about his service visit. Would recommend and will be using them again in the future. ”
