A gas fireplace, whether it’s hot or cold, is a must-have for any Melbourne home because of its presence. It adds instant value to any home, and always acts as a focal point in regard to design and atmosphere.Here are the benefits, other than just heat, that a gas fireplace will offer:
- Increases the value of your home
There’s no doubt that you’ll enjoy the fireplace while you live in your home, but if ever you want to sell it, you are much more likely to get a better price compared to a home without a fireplace. Fireplaces create an atmosphere like no other feature can.
- Clean burning is good for the environment
Technological advancements in modern balanced flue gas fireplaces have allowed for clean burning, because balanced flue gas fireplaces are sealed units that draw clean air for combustion from outside, and expel any combustion by-products externally, maintaining optimum indoor air quality.
Though wood-burning fireplaces offer the experience of smoke and a unique smell, gas fireplaces don’t have any odour, which is a good thing, especially in the close proximity to other areas of your home. With a gas fireplace, there are no odours or smoke.
- Easy to operate
Since there are no fires to start and prepare, with a gas fireplace it’s quick and easy to start, offering immediate heat for your home. Unlike a wood fireplace, they kick-start at the flick of a button and allow for easy control of flame height, fan and thermostat settings.
- Minimal maintenance
Wood burning fireplaces require more upkeep than a balanced flue gas fireplace, as you need to source and store firewood, occasionally skim your ash bed and have your chimney or flue system swept regularly. With a gas fireplace, you only need to have your fireplace serviced by a licensed technician every few years.
- Good on the eye
A modern gas fireplace with logs, made from ceramic fibre, look realistic and glow just like a real fire. You wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. The logs are designed to include specific shapes and textures that resemble real firewood.
So, if you’ve been considering getting a gas fireplace, think of all the benefits a gas fireplace can offer. It’s so easy to operate and is just as perfect-looking as a regular fireplace, without the mess and hassle.
