A gas fireplace is an investment in your home. Make sure you’re considering all the right details when it’s time to make a choice. When deciding which model to purchase, look closely at these top 5 features.
After the winter passes and you start to use your fireplace less often, the focus shifts from relaxing in front of the fire to decorating the mantel. As a result, we don’t always keep an eye on what’s happening inside the fireplace, and when it’s time for spring cleaning, we forget all about it while we give the rest of our appliances a thorough scrubbing. But just because your gas fireplace burns clean doesn’t mean it doesn’t need cleaning!
