Alternative heating appliances have gained a lot of popularity over the past couple of decades. The reason for this is that many appliances like fireplaces, inserts, and stoves have become a lot easier to operate and are a lot more efficient. Heating appliances also can now burn a number of different fuel types. One traditional fuel that is commonly used is wood, but the labor and maintenance that goes into owning a wood burning appliance can turn some people off to owning one of these appliances. However, there are other fuel options available that allow you to enjoy a fire, without the hassles that accompany owning a wood burning appliance. At Old Smokey’s, we can help you choose an appliance. Whether you are looking to own a fireplace, log set, insert, or stove, we know that you’ll be happy with the gas fueled appliances that we offer.

Why Gas Appliances?wood stove burning by firewood

Homeowners are choosing gas appliances for a couple of reasons. First off, gas appliances are relatively easy to operate compared to their wood burning counterparts. Operating a gas appliance usually only consists of turning on a switch. Secondly, gas burning appliances only produce a minuscule amount of creosote, just a fraction of what a wood or coal burning appliance produces. This means gas appliances are usually easier to maintain and since they are cleaner burning, chimneys in gas appliances generally stay cleaner. Finally, gas burning appliances produce zero ash, so after you are done enjoying your fire, there is little to no cleanup needed.

Appliances That We Offer

We offer a wide range of gas appliances.  Whether you are looking for a fireplace, log set, insert, or stove, we have all of these appliances in a variety of design options. If you are unsure of what type of appliance you are looking for, Old Smokey’s can help guide you through the process of choosing which appliance is right for you.

Gas Fireplaces – A fireplace is a more traditional choice. Gas fireplaces are especially convenient because they are very versatile in regards to placement in your home.

Gas Log Sets – A gas log set is an appliance that is designed to mimic a real wood burning fireplace by using a set of fire-resistant ceramic logs which set on top of a gas burner.  The logs are designed to look like real wooden logs, which provide an authentic wood fire experience. Also, like a traditional wood fireplace, log sets are not meant to be a primary heating source.

Gas Inserts – A fireplace insert is a gas appliance that is inserted into an already existing open-hearth fireplace. Basically, an insert replaces your old firebox. This is convenient for people who would like to convert their old wood burning fireplace into a new gas one.

Gas Stoves – Many people like gas stoves because they are efficient and they put out a lot of heat. If you are looking for an appliance that will help to supplement your home’s heating, a gas stove might be the choice for you.
