While woodburning fireplaces are still extremely popular in the South, gas fireplaces are now the preference of most buyers nationally. The preference for gas fireplaces has grown primarily due to the following:
Technological improvements that give gas fireplaces the realism of a natural woodburning fire except for the crackle, pop, and odor of the wood fire.
Convenient & Immediate
The convenience of having an immediate fire with the use of a remote control or wall switch for a few minutes or for hours as you prefer.
Low Maintenance & Mess
No effort required in getting kindling and logs, no bugs or mess, and no smoke leaking into you living space as can occur with a wood fire.
There are a wide range of personalized choices for a more unique fireplace. Choices include the newly popular long, slender contemporary designs as well as fireplaces that divert heat away from artwork or televisions placed above the unit.
Variety & Style
A variety of media from ceramic log sets to clear or colored glass along with upper or lower lighting inside of the fireplace add uniqueness.
Gas fireplaces are available in vented (B-Vent or Direct Vent) or non-vented (Vent-Free) models. Each of these fireplace types function differently and offer pros and cons, which are described throughout this site.
