A fireplace can bring instant ambiance, extra warmth and value to a home. So how does Gas Vs. Electric Fireplaces compare?

When choosing between an electric or gas fireplace, it’s important to determine the pros and cons of each in order to make the best decision for your home.

Gas Vs. Electric Fireplaces – What to know:

Fireplace X Gas Inserts

Gas Fireplaces

With gas fireplaces, a flame is produced that looks and feels like the real deal. This type of fireplace makes a room feel inviting, cozy, and most importantly – warm.

However, it has to be turned on in order for that feeling to be created in a room. This makes those who live in climates where it isn’t as cold in the winter desire a gas fireplace. Gas fireplaces do heat up a room quickly making it ideal for a home in any type of climate.

Also, installing this type of fireplace increases value to a home. While a gas fireplace is much more expensive to install than an electric one, the investment typically pays itself back when selling the home. It also helps you to reduce heating bills during cold weather months.

Some argue that because there is no real flame with this type of fireplace, the cozy feeling is lost. However for those who live in warmer climates, this may be the right fit in terms of look.

Unlike a gas fireplace, an electric variation is another appliance. This means if the power goes out, you will have no heat from your electric fireplace.

Which do you choose? Gas Vs. Electric Fireplaces

Whether you choose gas fireplaces or electric fireplaces, you will still see an increase in home value regardless.

However, because they use electricity to operate, they will cost more to operate than that of a gas fireplace, which in turn, is more expensive to purchase and install.
