The countdown to 2018 is on. If you’re like the majority of Americans, after the revelry and hype of New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day is over, you will be dreaming of a fresh start for your goals, your life and your home. What better way to start anew than to replace that old, dirty, wood-burning fireplace with a brand new gas fireplace insert? Here are some of the top advantages of switching to gas.
Wood burning stoves and fireplaces are a nice source of heat when the nights in San Diego drop in temperature. But they are also messy, dirty and prone to accidents. We’ve seen our share of accidents due to hot embers in a garbage bin, logs that pop cinders onto nearby upholstery and gunked-up flues that don’t allow a fire to burn properly. A fireplace is also a hazard to kids who are playing nearby and may accidentally touch or fall into the hearth.
With a new gas fireplace insert, none of these factors are a concern. Gas burns clean and efficiently, without the high temperatures and open flames of a wood-burning fireplace. Glass doors make it even safer by providing a barrier between the gas flames and those enjoying them.
There’s no need for your new gas fireplace insert to be boring. The burner itself is available in various styles, in addition to the ways you can customize the surround of the old wood fireplace with its new gas insert. There are plenty of ways to add dramatic effects by using gorgeous glass or gems, available in different sizes, shapes and colors. This results in a unique “fire and ice” effect that is truly breathtaking.
If you are more of a traditionalist, opt for realistic looking ceramic logs in a wide variety of sizes and species. You can also add decorative, flame-proof baubles to the hearth in the form of cast pine cones, acorns and leaves.
Whether your home is decorated in a contemporary, traditional or transitional style, we can help you put together a gas fireplace insert and accessories that look right at home in your home.
Streamline Your Life
The last thing you need to worry about is finding firewood and ensuring you have an adequate supply for the winter months. Why not get rid of the hassle, mess and expense of stacking logs and making fires in a traditional fireplace? There’s an easier, safer way to enjoy mesmerizing flames and it’s with a gas fireplace insert.
At Hauser’s Patio, we offer several gas burners to choose from, each with a different type and size of flame. Add a remote control to turn the flames on and off and you’ve got a very convenient and safe way to instantly start a fire. Maintaining an even temperature is easy, too, due to a thermostat that monitors the heat output. We’ll even install the new gas fireplace insert of your choice.
Adding a new gas fireplace insert is a clean, efficient and effortless way to warm your home. And it is better for the environment than a traditional wood-burning fireplace.
