Dirty Wood-burning Fireplace Cramping Your Style? Let Us Help Rekindle the Flame
Is your old fireplace sucking the love right out of your life? We love fireplaces…but old fireplaces suck. Why? Plenty of reasons:
- They’re expensive: Wood-burning fireplaces can waste up to $200 each year in energy costs. Add on another $200 for chimney cleaning, plus some extra cash for wood, and you’re looking at a serious spend.
- They’re dirty: Ash, soot, smoke – need we say more? It’s no secret that wood-burning fireplaces are messy – and all the cleaning you have to do definitely diminishes the pleasure of the fire’s glow.
- They’re drafty: Open masonry fireplaces are a leading source of indoor air loss, even more so than windows and doors.
- They’re high maintenance: You chop the wood, haul it in, light the fire, poke and prod, and…wait. Once the flames finally appear, it’s nearly time to put them out – and then you have to deal with that messiness we mentioned. Face it – a wood-burning fireplace is like an ex-girlfriend: high maintenance. Isn’t it time to upgrade to a newer model?
If we had to guess, we’d say your old wood-burning fireplace is probably sucking the romance right out of your life. But it doesn’t have to be that way – and it’s just a matter of a quick upgrade. A Direct Vent gas fireplace insert seals off your chimney, which eliminates drafts and lowers your energy bill. Plus, it provides clean and efficient heat and is low maintenance – no chopping, hauling, or cleaning involved, and it turns on and off with just the flip of a switch. And did we mention they look great?
