|Smart Remodeling with an Entrancing, Economical Vent-Free Gas Fireplace|
Arlington VA. – March 15, 2009 – When it's not time to sell a house, for many homeowners, it's time to remodel. Many are discovering that one of today's most economical ways of transforming an unused or unsightly space into the family's favorite gathering spot is by installing an enchanting vent-free gas fireplace for supplemental heating.
A VENT-FREE GAS FIREPLACE CAPTIVATES and invites everyone to sit, gather, and enjoy. Wherever it is placed, a vent-free fireplace becomes an instant centerpiece for any room's decor. Vent-free fireplaces come in a great variety of types, styles, and colors ranging from traditional to contemporary. Whatever your home's decor, you'll have a choice of vent-free fireplaces to bring it to a stunning new level of elegance – at a surprisingly affordable price to install and operate. Many renovation articles stress the importance of recovering renovation dollars when selling a home. Home owners find that by adding a gas fireplace to their home, they are adding value to the resale price.
VENT-FREE GAS FIREPLACES ARE ECONOMICAL because they provide 99.9 percent energy efficient heat with no need for a chimney or a hole in the wall. Because vent-free appliances do not require venting to the outside, they can safely be placed practically anywhere in a home with access to a gas line. Over 20 million American homes have vent-free gas fireplaces, logs, inserts, and space heaters that operate on natural gas or propane to provide supplementary heating.
VENT-FREE GAS FIREPLACES HAVE AN OUTSTANDING SAFETY RECORD. All U.S. gas code groups and 49 states allow the sale and installation of vent-free appliances. Every vent-free gas product sold in the U.S. is equipped with a precision-engineered Oxygen Detection Safety-Pilot (ODS), which automatically shuts off the gas supply if the oxygen level in the room approaches a defined minimum set by American National Standard (ANSI) Z21.11.2. Because of this and other vent-free safety features, there is no need to open a window to ventilate a vent-free gas heating appliance.
