Dangers of firewood… Get a gas log fireplace


So, at one time you considered installing a Gas Log Fireplace but balked when you saw the price. You have been known to be rather frugal when it comes to parting ways with your money.You might be happy with your wood burning fireplace, except for the work involved with chopping wood. Speaking of firewood, that stuff can cause some problems.

Danger #1 chopping wood

The obvious danger of firewood is in the cutting process. All it takes is one slip of the ax, and you could find yourself on the ground looking for a severed toe, finger or whatever. And if you don’t wear safety goggles, you risk losing an eye from a wayward chunk of timber. Gas log fireplaces don’t have any of the risks of chopping wood.

Danger #2 bugs!

There is a chance that the firewood you purchased came from a tree infested with any number of nastiness. Your firewood could be full of bugs like wood wasps, pine beetles or gypsy moths, none of which you want to deal with. You could also receive wood from a diseased tree, Beech bark disease and Dutch elm disease come to mind.

Danger #3 finding the wood

Perhaps you chop your own trees down for your firewood, then take this into consideration. In your journey to discover the perfect tree to fell, you are at risk of exposing yourself to ticks, poison plants and even wildlife. That is quite a risk considering you could be at home enjoying your gas log fireplace.

Look, chopping wood is dangerous and buying wood is expensive, but there is an easier way. Enjoy the wonders of a fireplace without the hassle of dealing with firewood by having a gas fireplace installed. Upgrade your home, for gas log fireplace installation and repairs, give us a call or get a free consult now.

Customers With a NICE Experience

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. ”

“My technician arrived promptly at our appointed hour. He repaired a dirty and non-working gas fireplace. In addition, he found a small gas leak on our furnace line. Overall, exceptional service and quality work. I highly recommend their HVAC service.”

“They treat customers like a valuable asset, not like a number. Business the old-fashioned way, that will never go out of style.”

“Superb customer service. Before a service appointment, you receive a text message notification with photo of the tech that will be at your residence followed by a phone call. During a service appointment you'll updated and educated. If there is a concern, management will contact you promptly and follow up until issue resolved. Awesome and attentive team!!”
