How to Choose a Gas Fireplace for Your Home

By: Danny Lipford

Gas fireplaces are very popular today, and the main reason is convenience.

  • Gas fireplaces provide an instant fire at the touch of a switch or remote control.
  • There is no mess or clean up of ashes with a gas fireplace as there is with a wood burning fireplace.
  • Models of gas fireplaces are available that require little or no venting, saving money on the cost of the chimney or flue that is needed with wood burning fireplaces.
  • Gas fireplaces can be easily installed in a corner, higher up on a wall, or even in a bathroom.
  • Gas fireplaces are available in a wide range of sizes and styles.
