We Can Take Care Of Your Wood To Gas Conversion

Wood fireplaces and stoves have provided homeowners with enjoyment for decades, but they aren’t for every family and every situation. We speak to many homeowners who love the look, warmth, and availability of wood, but feel that it’s simply not convenient, given their lifestyle and needs. And we get it! Sometimes chopping, gathering, stacking, and storing wood is not convenient, enjoyable, or even physically possible. But that doesn’t mean you have to go without the warmth and enjoyment that a fire can provide. Today’s gas fireplaces, inserts, stoves, and gas log sets make fireside enjoyment more enjoyable and more convenient than ever before.

Have you been considering making the switch from wood to gas? It can be a difficult decision to make, especially if you haven’t weighed all the pros and cons of each. If you’re still on the fence, here’s a little bit of information on the benefits of switching from wood to gas:

  • No gathering fuel or storage required. With a gas fireplace, insert, stove, or log set, your fuel is automatically fed to the fire, so you won’t have to worry about gathering or stacking wood. This is great news for those who physically can’t do the task, but it’s also great for those with limited storage space.
  • No building the fire. A gas fire is ready when you are – you simply turn it on when you’re ready to get warm and cozy. There’s no work involved on the front end and no getting down on your knees to build the fire – just flip the switch and relax.
  • No cleanup required. Just as there’s no work involved on the front end with a gas fire, there’s also no real cleanup involved. It’s easily the lowest maintenance way to enjoy a fire out there.
  • No waiting for the fire to kindle or die down. Are you the type who’s always on the go, running in and out of the house? Do you prefer to sit and relax by the fire right before bed? Well, with a gas fireplace, you can enjoy the fire for as long as you want and then simply turn it off. With gas, there’s no waiting for the fire to get hot or waiting for it to die down when you’re ready to run out the door or head to bed.
