When both of us bought our home, 1 of the selling points was a really beautiful wood burning fireplace in the living room.
It didn’t take long for us to figure out that building a fire is a good deal of work. It causes sparks, soot, fumes, smoke and creates complications with creosote in the chimney, then unwilling to deal with all the downsides of a wood burning option, I started looking into possible conversion to natural gas. I l gained that it’s possible to install an insert and create a much more USble heater. Sold through a dealer, the inserts have met difficult safety standards and includes automatic shut off settings if there’s a problem. The model also features a blower fan that spreads the heat throughout the downstairs of the house. We don’t need to sit right up close to keep warm. With a cordless remote, we’re able to turn the oil furnace on or off and adjust temperature and fan speed without even getting up off the couch. As soon as it starts up, the natural gas fireplace provides immediate heat. It’s scrub burning, quiet and yet unquestionably realistic looking. The ceramic logs are crafted to appear authentic and embers glow around them to simulate real fire. We love the ambience, charm and warmth of the fireplace without any of the hassles. Since the upgrade, I’ve noticed a definite improvement in the comfort of the apartment and a savings on our monthly energy bills. I am blissful that the fireplace is finally serving a purpose. It creates such a beautiful focal point and it was such a shame to never put it to use.
