Consider A New Gas Fireplace - Greer SC - Chim ChereeIncrease the heating efficiency of your home.

Although traditional wood-burning fireplaces provide a lot of atmosphere and sensory experiences, they do not give a great deal of heat to your home. In fact, the energy efficiency rating of a masonry fireplace can be as low as 10 to 15 percent. This is because so much of the heat produced by the fire escapes out of the chimney. According to HouseLogic, the energy efficiency ratings of gas fireplace inserts ranges from 65 to 99 percent.

Enjoy the convenience and ease of usage.

When you have a wood-burning fireplace, you are responsible for several chores. This includes bringing in firewood from outside storage and sweeping up ashes after each fire. With a gas fireplace insert, you will not have to worry these chores. You will love the convenience of your new gas insert. Why? Because, now you can start a warm fire from the comfort of your favorite chair or couch by pressing a button on your remote control.

Reduce the amount of pollution from your home.

The high energy efficiency ratings of gas fireplace inserts means that very few amounts of pollution are released from your home. Also, your new insert will produce very little smoke, ash, and creosote. Another great benefit of the low energy efficiency rating is that you will save money on your heating costs. You won’t need to turn up the furnace to compensate for the low amount of heat produced by your masonry fireplace.
