Welcome to the upcoming burn season.
Every year at this time we all look at our fireplaces and wonder what to do. Should we keep burning wood and deal with the mess and the smell? Do we convert to gas? Or do we just close the glass door and put it off until next year?
Industry numbers tells us that more and more people are tired of the mess of wood and want the convenience of gas. But how can this happen? Who do I call? Where do I start? The first step is to contact your local fireplace experts, I.E. (Bromwell’s) and discuss your options. There are numerous ways to burn gas in an existing wood fireplace. The first question you have to ask yourself is what do I want my fireplace to do? Do I want heat? Do I want ambiance? Or do I want my cake and eat it to?
We often want it all so the best way to burn gas in an existing wood burning fireplace is a Direct Vent Insert. A sealed combustion system that gives you the beauty of a vented gas log with efficiency of a vent free log without the smell. And to top it off you will get a blower with this type of unit. We all know a good blower makes all the difference!
