Convenient Gas Stoves, Fireplaces & Inserts
Used to be, gas stoves were convenient but not particularly attractive. Now that’s not the case, and there are more reasons than ever to consider using a gas stove or fireplace in your Florida home. Whether you want a traditional or contemporary fireplace, a primary or secondary heat source, or just some added ambiance, gas heating appliances can work for you and your home. Plus, using a gas stove or fireplace simplifies the job of owning a fireplace. The reality of maintaining a wood-burning fireplace includes buying or cutting wood, hauling wood home and toting it to the fireplace. Then there’s a fire to start and, later, ashes and unburned logs to clean up. Many of us don’t have the time or the desire to deal with a wood-burning fireplace or stove. Luckily, gas fireplaces and stoves can offer many of the same features, while giving you instant flames and heat with the touch of a button. Easy to use, gas fireplaces can usually be activated by a switch or remote control. Another advantage of gas heating: gas’s cleaner flames create less chimney residue than wood-burning fireplaces, meaning less air pollution.
Gas heating appliances are available as fireplace inserts, free-standing units or gas stoves. There may be several reasons to tear out and replace your existing prefabricated fireplace, such as damage from fire, water or deterioration, or that it no longer suits the design of your home or the lifestyle of your family. Perhaps you need a more energy-efficient unit, or you just prefer the look and function of gas models. The chimney sweeps at Hudson Chimney, which proudly carries Regency Fireplace Products, can help you determine the model and type of gas stove or fireplace that works best for your home, family and budget.
Contemporary Gas Fireplaces
Fireplaces and stoves generally get filed under “traditional,” but if traditional is not your style, that doesn’t mean that fireplaces and stoves are not for you. Hudson Chimney uses 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
If you’re looking for a classic-style fireplace, we can almost guarantee that you will like Regency’s Traditional Direct Vent Gas Fireplace line. This product line is all about realistic, full fires and 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 which can add value and efficiency to your home. These inserts are heating appliances that have gas logs inside and a glass window to prevent the chimney from sucking heat back out of your house. The good news is that you can usually install a high-efficiency gas insert into your existing fireplace. Inserts are great because they consume much less gas and, as a sole source of heat, can heat up to 1,500 square feet in most homes.
Gas stoves can create warm gathering places that are clean and modern or timeless and traditional. They can provide high-efficiency heat for large living areas or be turned down so that homeowners can enjoy the look of the fire with less warmth. Hudson Chimney’s gas stove dealer, Regency, offers gas stoves with the ambiance of a freestanding woodstove with the convenience of gas. We also carry Hampton cast-iron stoves.
