Discover 4 Big Benefits of Gas Fireplaces

gas fireplace Wyalusing, PA We’re in the thick of winter now. This is the season where you’re looking for ways to stay warm and cozy in your Eastern Pennsylvania home. Ace-Robbins has the answer. We sell and install propane gas fireplaces, propane gas fireplace inserts, and gas log sets.

Let’s take a closer look at the gas logs fireplaces use.

What Is a Gas Log?

As opposed to the wood that burns in a traditional fireplace, a gas fireplace uses gas logs that include piping and logs made of ceramic (or sometimes cement). The piping directs the propane gas through holes in the logs. Once ignited, the propane produces a steady flame by burning harmlessly on the surface of the ceramic logs.

Getting a fire started with a gas log is much easier than getting a traditional fire started. Gas logs can be ignited with the turn of a knob or the push of a button on a remote control. It really is that simple!

Gas Logs vs. Firewood

Propane gas fireplaces, inserts, and gas log sets have a lot to offer. Here are a few of the benefits you’ll enjoy especially as compared to firewood:

  1. Convenience: Make gathering wood, searching for matches or a lighter, and sweeping up ashes things of the past. Simply click “on” to enjoy your fire and “off” when you’re done. It couldn’t be easier.
  2. Aesthetics: Today’s propane hearths produce realistic flames and come in a range of designs and finishes—just choose your favorite. They make a beautiful addition to any room.
  3. Safety: A propane gas fireplace doesn’t generate embers, doesn’t contain unstable log piles, and doesn’t leave any dangerous creosote buildup in your chimney like firewood does. Maintained properly, it will provide safe heat for years to come.
  4. Savings: Propane fireplaces are four to five times more efficient than wood fireplaces. That means you don’t need to spend as much to stay warm with a propane fireplace versus a wood fireplace. You’ll also save money on maintenance, because propane fireplaces cost less to maintain and don’t require chimney cleaning services either.
