Gas Fireplaces and Winter: A Match Made in Heating Heaven

Danielle Onat | 11/20/2017 | Posted in Gas fireplace, Insulation, Tips to save money, Fireplace

The winter season is all about being nestled in front of a cozy fireplace with friends and family. It helps to keep the rain and cold at bay in the Puget Sound.

What says fall and winter better than a cozy fire? How about a cozy fire that is also energy efficient, safe, stylish, convenient, and provides warmth? Gas fireplaces from Washington Energy Services fit the bill. Take a look and sign-up for a Free Estimate.

Energy Efficiency

Today’s gas fireplace inserts from Archgard allow you to zone-heat your home, providing warmth to the room your family frequents the most. This helps you save on your energy bills because you don’t have to continuously run your furnace or heat pump throughout your whole home.

The inserts themselves also boast impressive energy efficient stats. In fact, all Archgard models offer at least an 80 AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency). AFUE represents the percentage of heat produced for every dollar of fuel consumed. This percentage is especially impressive when you consider that these models offer both radiant and blown heat.

Safety

Wood burning fireplaces can pose serious health risks to your family. Smoke contains microscopic particles that get into your eyes, and worse, your respiratory system and bloodstream. At best, it might cause you to cough or have watery eyes. At worst, it can permanently damage your lungs.

Gas fireplace inserts remove this concern by providing the same look and feel like a real fire, without the safety hazards. No floating particles, no smoky rooms. Just you, a clean fire, and a safe home.

Style and Convenience

Gone are the days of limited gas fireplace options. For a traditional look, opt for decorative grates and surrounds. Or go sleek and simple for a contemporary decor. Whatever your preference, there are dozens of options for surround style, backgrounds, logs, and stones.

In terms of convenience, gas fireplace inserts really couldn’t be simpler. With the push of a remote control button, you have an energy efficient heat with no logs, matches, or ash.

Cozy Warmth

Finally, gas fireplaces provide a cozy warmth that you just don’t get with other heating systems. Models from Washington Energy Services feature a blower to efficiently heat a room, and radiant heat for a cozy, sipping-hot-chocolate-on-Christmas-Eve feeling.

There’s no better time than winter to install a gas fireplace to upgrade the style, efficiency, and warmth of your home. Contact Washington Energy Services for a free in-home estimate from one of our skilled technicians.

    Gas fireplaces are definitely attractive considering their cleaner air options. My wife and I are thinking about adding a fireplace to our home for the winter and I’m not sure which kind we want. I’ll have to consider getting a gas one simply because I want to be able to avoid hazardous particles.
