453196619-FireplacesIf you’re new to the world of fireplaces, but know that you want to have one installed in your home, you’ve probably asked yourself whether you should go with a wood one or a gas one. To make sure you make the right decision, it’s important that you understand some of the key differences between gas and wood fireplaces.

Gas Fireplaces

Gas fireplaces, much like their name suggests, are powered by gas and also use a standing pilot light. While you probably couldn’t roast marshmallows in your gas fireplace, this type of fireplace is a beneficial choice for many homeowners because gas fireplaces are easy to maintain, simple to use, and provide a convenient and constant stream of heat. At B&R Heating & Cooling, we carry gas fireplaces from high-quality suppliers like Regency, Valor, and Napoleon.

Wood Fireplaces

When you have a wood fireplace in your home, all you have to do is stick a few logs in the opening, light a match, and you can have a roaring fire within a few short minutes. One of the main benefits of wood fireplaces is that they can be used to heat a large portion of your home during the winter months, helping you cut back on your energy bills. We carry wood fireplaces from brands like Pacific, Regency, and RSF.

At B&R Heating & Cooling, we’re more than happy to go further into the differences between gas and wood fireplaces and the benefits associated with each with you. We also install, repair, and provide maintenance services for both types of fireplaces.
