Gas Versus Wood?
FlameTech Heating is a trusted company servicing the needs of Victoria BC homeowners. Homeowners often are comparing which is a better choice for them to have installed gas or a wood burning stove in Victoria BC.
A wood fire is romantic and produces a cozy feeling with the crackling sound of burning wood. They do tend to be messy, bits of bark and wood littering the floor and there is also the inconvenience of keeping firewood stacked ready for use but they are handy during power outages with no need for electricity and you can cook on most.
Gas stoves are a very clean source of heating and very easy to operate. Convenient to use, at the touch of a switch you have a fire lacking the mess or need to start it every time like a wood burning fireplace. Gas stoves can operate with thermostats, remotes and timer systems that can keep the heat more consistent. In short, no mess and push-button ease = total convenience.
