Gas, Wood, and Electric Hearth Appliances
Hearth appliances such as fireplaces, stoves, and inserts are available in gas, wood, or electric versions. So, what exactly are the differences between the three types?
- Gas – Gas fireplaces and log sets are perfect for busy homeowners. They require minimal maintenance and are very simple to operate. Just flip a switch to turn them on for instant heat, and there’s no messy cleanup! Homeowners used to steer clear of gas appliances because they looked fake and clunky, but newer models look incredibly realistic!
- Wood – Wood burning appliances are loved for their traditional look and warmth. Recently, they have been improved to decrease waste and emissions. These enhanced models allow homeowners to experience the traditional fireplace they know and love much more efficiently. Wood burning fireplaces require more maintenance than their gas and electric counterparts. For example, you must purchase properly seasoned firewood or chop and store wood yourself. Wood-burning fires also produce creosote, which can build up in your chimney over time. Fortunately, creosote is easily removed during a chimney sweeping!
- Electric – Similar to gas appliances, electric models turn on at the push of a button and have minimal maintenance! They can also be used purely for looks, functionality, or both! Electric appliances also have very low emissions.
So, which is better? It all depends on your needs and wants. Fortunately, we definitely have something for you whether you want a stove, fireplace, or other hearth appliance! We sell, install, and maintain a variety of models and appliances at SirVent!
