Benefits of Gas Stoves
With so many different options to choose from to heat your home (wood, pellet, gas), it can be difficult to know which one to choose.
Here are a few reasons to consider using a gas stove:
Convenience. There’s no firewood or pellets to collect or store. You won’t need to worry about the hassle of starting a fire — you can simply turn on a switch and enjoy a blazing fire in seconds.
Eco-friendly. Natural gas is a clean-burning fuel that emits little pollution.
Low-maintenance. Whether you choose a ventless or direct vent gas stove, there’s very little cleanup and maintenance required. You won’t need to deal with ashes and soot produced by a wood-burning or pellet stove. All that’s needed is an occasional wipe-down of the gas logs and interior.
Consistent temperatures. Today’s gas stoves use high-efficiency heat exchangers that provide long-lasting fires at programmable temperatures.
Vent-Free vs Direct Vent Gas Stoves
What’s the difference between a vent-free gas stove and a direct vent gas stove?
Vent-free or ventless stoves: don’t require an external attachment, chimney or vent pipe which makes them a popular choice as they don’t need any special installation. They’re also highly-efficient as heat is contained within the box and doesn’t tend to escape to the exterior as is the case with some models of direct vent gas stoves.
Direct vent or vented gas stoves: as the name implies, must be correctly installed to an existing chimney or exterior venting system to properly exhaust the fumes and gases produced. Vented gas logs tend to look more realistic and provide a welcoming yellow flickering flame and warm ambience.
Types of Gas Stoves
The Stove Center carries a variety of Napoleon and Iron Strike gas stoves which come in direct vent or ventless options. Whether you seek the vintage look of a cast iron stove or a more sleek, modern look to match your décor, our gas stoves are effective in keeping your home warm on a chilly autumn or winter day.
What Does Natural Gas Smell Like?
In its natural form, natural gas is almost pure methane which is odorless and colorless making it very difficult to detect.
This is why natural gas companies add an odor to the gas making it detectable. Some people say this smell is similar to sulfur, or “rotten eggs.” The state of Massachusetts has strict regulations on the amount of odor added to natural gas; a gas leak of only 0.15 percent should be detectable.
If you haven’t done so already, carbon monoxide (CO) detectors should be installed outside of your bedroom to alert you of a gas leak. If you happen to smell an unusual odor, leave your home immediately and call your local gas company.
