What Are Some Benefits of Gas Fireplaces & Stoves?

Owning a gas fireplace or stove gives you the “real fire” benefit of a more traditional wood-fueled appliance with significantly less work. This makes them an excellent choice for homeowners with busy lifestyles. While a wood-burning fireplace sure is wonderful, regular maintenance is a bit involved: buying or cutting wood, hauling it home, and toting it to the fireplace. Then there’s a fire to start and, later, ashes and unburned logs to clean up. For some, the work is worth it; but, many of us simply don’t have the time or desire to deal with the reality of operating a wood-burning fireplace or stove.

Luckily, that’s where gas fireplaces, inserts, and stoves come in. Here is just a handful of the many benefits associated with gas-fueled appliances:

  • Instant, life-like flames roar to life in a matter of seconds…and with the touch of a button or flip of a switch!
  • Many models come with a remote, making it easier than ever to spark your system to life – without even leaving the couch.
  • Significantly less maintenance to care for and operate compared to their wood-burning counterparts.
  • Gas’s cleaner burn creates less chimney residue than wood-burning fireplaces, which also means less air pollution.
  • Known to be much more energy efficient, with the ability to heat more space quicker.

What Are the Differences Between Gas Fireplaces, Inserts, & Stoves?

So, gas heating appliances are a great way to heat your home and enhance your space. But, with so many different options, how do you know which direction to go in? Gas fireplace? Gas fireplace insert? Gas stove? Here is a brief overview of the different kinds of gas-fueled heating appliances available:

Gas Fireplaces

Consisting of an enclosed combustion chamber, gas fireplaces are an excellent option for homeowners interested in versatility. Available in a variety of venting styles, type, and overall look, gas fireplaces appeal to many because of their location flexibility (they don’t require the use of an existing chimney) and customizable features. At Hudson Chimney, we’re proud to offer both contemporary and traditional gas fireplaces to our customers.

Contemporary Gas Fireplaces

Fireplaces and stoves generally get filed under “traditional,” in terms of the look and feel. But, even if traditional is not your style, that doesn’t mean that fireplaces and stoves are not for you! Hudson Chimney sells and installs models from the Regency Contemporary Fireplace line, which work fabulously in clean and modern living spaces. Many of these fireplaces were created with artistic styling and have redefined the log fire instead using fire-scapes that include river pebbles or cobalt blue crystals.

Traditional Gas Fireplaces

However, if you’re looking for a classic-style fireplace, we can almost guarantee that you will fall head-over-heels in love with Regency’s Traditional Direct Vent Gas Fireplace line. This product line is all about realistic and full fires – all with timeless styles. Plus, Regency allows you to customize many of your fireplace’s design elements so that they complement your home.

Gas Fireplace Inserts

If you’re interested in ditching your drafty fireplace in favor of consistent, controllable heat, you may want to consider a gas fireplace insert. Adding both value and efficiency to your home, gas inserts are designed to fit inside a traditional open-facing masonry fireplace. Similar to a gas fireplace, inserts feature gas logs enclosed inside a chamber and outfitted with a glass window to prevent the produced heat from escaping out the chimney. Another bonus? Inserts consume much less gas and, as a sole source of heat, can heat up to 1,500 square feet in most homes!

Gas Stoves

A marriage of ample heat production and free-standing design, gas stoves can create warm gathering places that are clean and modern, or timeless and traditional. Highly efficient, gas stoves are a great way to heat large living areas when it’s cooler outside or, because of their adjustable heat output, simply provide the fireside ambience with less “in-your-face” heat – perfect for those warmer Florida days. And while gas stoves were once known to be rigid and industrial-looking, they now come in varying styles with different degrees of customization. Thanks to our gas stove dealers like Regency (including their Hampton line), Hudson Chimney offers gas stoves that boast the ambience of a freestanding wood stove with the convenience of gas, as well as those constructed of the finest materials such as cast iron.
