Our Gas Fireplace, Convenient & Ready To Go

It seems that the fall weather decided to come
early this year.It seems like we have
only had a few days that actually felt like summer and it appears that there
wonít be many more warm days ahead.A
couple of the days have got to the point that we needed to turn on the
fireplace.Luckily for us we have our Majestic
Vermont Castings gas fireplace.Why do I
say luckily?Let me tell you why.

††††††††††† The
other day after getting off of work and being outside in the cold weather long
enough for me to feel chilly, all I had to do was walk up to the fireplace, flip
a switch, and just like that-the fireplace turned right on!Within a matter of minutes the cold feeling
left my body and was replaced by a warm sensation.Having the fireplace also helps me to relax
after a hard day at work.I just flip
the switch, grab the newspaper and relax as I forget about the workday. However, it hasnít always been this easy for
me to warm up and relax.



††††††††††† Some
years ago, we lived in a house where there was no central heat and the source
of warmth was a wood burning fireplace.
There are certain things that I like about wood burning fireplaces, but
they seem to just be a lot of work!
Instead of coming home and flipping a switch, I had to first go outside,
open up the shed and find some firewood (which meant more time spent outside
getting colder by the minute).Then, it
would take much longer for the fire to get going and to warm up the house.

††††††††††† In
addition to this, if we didnít have any firewood handy, I had to either go and
buy some for a ridiculous price, or find some wood to cut myself.I donít mind swinging an axe to split some logs
every once in a while or on a Saturday when Iím not working, but if I come home
after a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is cut firewood.Not to mention how axes wear out overtime;
the handle splits, the blade needs to be sharpened, etc.

††††††††††† With
my gas fireplace, I donít have to worry about all these things!The fuel is natural gas; so no more splitting
logs, aching hands and back, or going outside to get firewood.All I do now is pay a little extra each month
on my gas bill while my house gets nice and toasty warm.Iím not an environmentalist or anything, but
I feel better about not using up so much wood and being able to save some trees
in the process.On top of that, I donít
have to clean out the ashes that are produced with a wood fireplace, so less
time is spent on work and more time is spent with my family around the warmth
of the fireplace.Looking back, I just
donít know how I lived without a gas fireplace!
