Borts Heating Has a Great Selection of Gas and Propane Fireplaces
Gas is the cleanest-burning combustible fuel available for fireplaces, cooking appliances and heating systems. There are no deposits associated with gas and propane, unlike wood-burning fireplaces where soot and creosote are common byproducts. Wood-burning fireplaces and stoves need chimney and firebox cleaning at least once a year to remove these harmful deposits, usually more often in our part of the world.
Gas fireplaces leave no byproducts behind. You’ll never have to worry about hot ashes accumulating in the firebox or sparks that could land on the floor or your furniture. There is no smoke associated with gas and propane fires. The combustion byproducts go up the chimney or out the vent and consist primarily of water vapor.
Some fireplaces are vent-free. They rely on oxygen sensors to measure the amount of oxygen in the air. When it falls too low, the fireplace will shut off. While these fireplace and heaters are recognized as safe, they shouldn’t be used in tightly enclosed spaces without a consistent source of fresh air when they’re in use.
Continental and Regency both design and manufacture gas and propane fireplaces that vent through walls or roof. This feature makes it easier to put a fireplace wherever you’d like one without needing a chimney. The vent can be snaked through the walls and up through the attic or out through an exterior wall.
Vented fireplaces are much safer than unvented systems. Even though gas burns clean, it does release small amounts of gases after burning like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide. In high enough quantities, each of these exhaust gases poses a hazard to health.
Gas Fireplaces are Convenient and Dependable
Gas fireplaces turn on and off effortlessly, compared to wood-burning appliances. You just push a button or flip a switch and you can have a fire. Burning wood requires much more work from gathering it from the forest to hauling off the ashes. Wood is also messy indoors and out. Insects and vermin are attracted to wood as a source of food and shelter.
Barring an unusual emergency, the supply of natural gas is dependable, which benefits you during power outages. You’ll have a source of heat for warming water and water, as well as a way to keep yourself warm.
