A 3-Step Guide for Adding a Gas Insert Fireplace

gas-fireplace-insertLiving in Minneapolis has its perks but it also has its drawbacks, one of which is our chilly winters. Thankfully our homes have reliable heating systems that we can use to stay comfortable. What’s more, many homes in Minneapolis also boast the benefits of a nice fireplace to help boost the warmth in winter.

As great as fireplaces are however the need to chop or purchase wood and constantly keep track of the build-up of soot and debris can eventually wear on anyone. You can opt-out of these tasks by switching to a gas fireplace. You may be wondering, “How can I do that if I already have a wood-burning fireplace in my house?” The answer is that you can reach out to us for gas insert services in Minneapolis.

The Benefits of a Gas Fireplace

Before you switch from a wood-burning fireplace to a gas-burning fireplace you will want to make sure that the choice is one that benefits you. For example, if you aren’t anywhere near a gas line to connect to, a gas fireplace may not be a good match for your home. If you are in a region where you can get easy access to natural gas, however, you can enjoy some of the following benefits:

  1. Energy efficiency: The truth is that in terms of warmth produced compared to fuel source used, wood logs aren’t the most efficient. In contrast, natural gas fireplaces have high energy efficiency as there is a nearly 1-to-1 ratio of warmth produced to fuel used.
  2. Better warmth for your home: With wood logs, there is going to be a certain amount of heat loss in your fireplace. A gas fireplace, however, will provide a reliable and steady resource of warmth being provided to your home.
  3. Better safety and cleanliness: No wood means no soot or ash which means a fireplace that is easier to keep clean. What’s more, it means not having to worry about the dangers of stray sparks getting onto the rug.
