Autumn is the perfect time to make your home prepared for the upcoming cold weather for which Denver, Colorado is famous. When you are not outside enjoying all of the snow for skiing and ice for skating, you will be spending a lot of time indoors in your home, and thus it makes sense to do whatever you can now to cozy up your home before the first snows fly. Many people already have heating systems in place, which can include fireplaces, but not all older fireplaces are up to the challenge of heating your home efficiently. If this describes what is happening in your home, you will want to look into a gas fireplace conversion. A fireplace gas conversion can take your drafty old fireplace and turn it into a modern heating machine.
There are several circumstances that might put your home in need of a gas fireplace conversion. If your home currently has an older propane gas fireplace in place, you may want to upgrade the system with a fireplace gas conversion. Another instance would be if you have a wood-burning fireplace, and decide that you would like the convenience of a gas fireplace, and so you could achieve that with a gas fireplace conversion. For fireplaces with broken parts, or older fireplaces that are so inefficient that it makes no sense to try to repair them, a fireplace replacement is in order.
The key component to a fireplace replacement or a gas fireplace conversion is the use of a gas insert. The gas insert is sized to fit the opening of your current fireplace so that there are no cracks or gaps. What the correct fit does is eliminate the heat produced by the gas fireplace replacement from being lost up the chimney flue, and the heat instead gets spread throughout your home. By using a fireplace gas conversion with your wood fireplace, you can have a cozier home, and you will be done with the messy cleaning chore of removing ashes and soot from the fireplace.
For poorly functioning old models, it makes sense to do a complete gas fireplace replacement. New models are beautiful, and can become the focal point of any room. You can also do a simple fireplace insert replacement as well.
