Many homeowners are converting their traditional masonry wood-burning fireplace to gas for convenience, higher heating efficiency, and less cleaning and maintenance. In addition, gas fireplaces have dramatically improved in the past few years, offering a more realistic fire-burning experience. Today's ceramic log sets are so realistic with such fine detail that it is hard to believe that it's not real wood.
Wood to Gas Fireplace Conversions
Perhaps, the biggest reason for a wood-to-gas conversion is to improve your home's heating efficiency. Since most heat is lost through the chimney, a traditional wood fireplace doesn't generate the heat output that a modern gas fireplace or insert provides. So, by converting your old wood-burning fireplace to gas, you will save money from relying on other supplemental heating sources like central heat or an oil furnace.
- Convenient operation – Push button ignition for instant heat
- Continuous heating – Automatic thermostat to set the desired temperature
- Natural gas or propane – Choice of gas fuel options
- No more storing and stacking wood logs – Reclaim your storage space
- Easier to clean and maintain – No more messy soot or creosote build-up
Converting a Gas Fireplace to Wood
Due to their lower cost, most new homes are built with a builder-grade gas fireplace. However, many home buyers still prefer a traditional wood-burning experience or miss the aroma and ambiance of a masonry fireplace in their previous home. The good news is that the certified technicians at Bethesda Chimney can convert most existing gas fireplaces to magnificent wood-burning fireplaces, complete with a custom fireplace surround and mantel that matches your lifestyle and budget.
