Frigid weather is expected to be the norm this winter according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac. Get ready to gather your family and friends in the warm indoors with a fireplace or insert.

Days are getting shorter. Nights are cold and this winter is expected to be especially frigid, making freezing temperatures and flurries of snow the norm. Whether you’re building your dream home or want to make your current home a little cozier, consider a gas fireplace.

Why a Gas Fireplace?

Think about this: with a gas fireplace you simply hit a button on a remote control or flip a switch on the wall for instant ambiance and warmth. And compared to a wood-burning fireplace, gas fireplaces are virtually hassle-free and maintenance-free, since they are closed systems fueled by natural gas or liquid propane.

Venting Considerations

You’ll want a Direct Vent gas fireplace with its sealed combustion system that protects indoor air quality. Direct Vent gas systems do this by drawing outside air for the fire, while expelling 100% of combustion exhaust and byproducts outside the home.

Styles to Suit You

Direct Vent gas fireplaces are available in a wide range of styles to suit your home’s interior design – and your tastes. Many homeowners opt to create a traditional hearth with a fireplace, surround and mantle. Others prefer an ultra-modern fireplace that resembles a piece of art on the wall with LED backlighting, and fire bed choices from logs and stones to crystals for a look all their own.

Ramp Up Holidays with a Fireplace

Few home improvement projects add more holiday appeal than a crackling fireplace. If you don’t have a fireplace, consider installing a zero-clearance fireplace on an existing wall. Or you could add a gas or electric firebox, complete with a hearth, fireplace surround, mantel, and overmantel.
