As we enter the colder months of the year, it’s time to start thinking about the best ways to heat your home this winter. With so many options available, you may find it harder to narrow down which style, output, and features you want in your home’s fireplace. But, if you’re in the market for a unit that is easy to use and requires minimum maintenance, a gas burning fireplace may be right for you.

One of the biggest benefits of owning a gas burning fireplace is their ability to provide instant heat at the push of a button. With gas fireplaces, you never have to worry about hauling and chopping heavy firewood so you can spend more time enjoying a nice fire with your family. If you are looking forward to entertaining guests in your backyard this holiday season, then you should consider installing an outdoor gas firepit in your Wasatch County home.
While the initial cost of installing a gas fireplace may be more expensive than it’s wood-burning counterpart, you’ll save money in the long run by not having to buy firewood or pay for costly annual chimney inspections and cleanings. Furthermore, gas fireplaces are ideal for cost-conscious homeowners who are looking for new ways to reduce their electricity bills.
Reducing the amount of energy your home uses is not only beneficial for your wallet, but it also helps the environment. The electricity used to power your home is produced using either coal or nuclear power — both of which are known to be harmful to the environment. Gas is also a healthier fuel source compared to wood as it does not give off smoke and soot, or release harmful chemicals into the atmosphere that your family can breathe in.
Gas burning fireplaces require minimum maintenance which will save you some time when completing regular house-cleaning chores. With gas fireplaces, you don’t have to worry about cleaning up ashes or soot every time you want to start a fire. Instead, your only maintenance obligation is a simple annual inspection.
