Are Gas Fireplaces More Energy Efficient?
Natural gas fireplaces can actually be energy efficient if well maintained. Because natural gas is a relatively inexpensive resource, many homeowners are choosing gas fireplace installation in their new homes. Natural gas fireplaces are also less harmful than wood-burning fireplaces because they give off fewer emissions and are able to regulate heat better. Refer to your gas utility provider to determine the current gas usage rate in your area.
Should I Hire A Plumber to Service My Gas Fireplace?
The reality is that when most people think of plumbers, they don’t realize that plumbers do more than service sewer and water lines. Licensed plumbers in Indiana also service natural gas and propane lines. It’s vital you choose a plumber that holds a license from the Indiana Plumbing Commission. Not only will this ensure the person who comes out to service your gas fireplace is working within Indiana state laws, but it will also ensure you’re working with someone who is specifically trained to repair gas lines.
What Are Common Gas Fireplace Safety Concerns?
When working on or installing a gas fireplace, there are a few things to keep in mind. First and foremost, we highly encourage you to call upon certified and insured technicians. Secondly, it’s imperative that you use the correct log lighter: natural gas fireplaces require a natural gas log lighter, and likewise for a propane fireplace. They are not interchangeable. If you’re running a new gas line or conducting the initial hook-up, keep in mind that all piping must be a hard black pipe. No flex piping should be used.
