I care about the idea of a gas fireplace being much cleaner separate from all of the hassle of wood as a fuel.
I keep going back and forth about this. I care about the idea of a wood burning fireplace with the odor of the wood burning and the sounds of the crackling wood releasing steam vapors trapped inside. The only thing I don’t care about about the wood fireplaces is all of the work it takes to make the fire. You have to cut the wood and then haul it in, after that you need to disinfect all of the ashes from the fireplace once it has burned. I care about the idea of a gas fireplace being much cleaner separate from all of the hassle of wood as a fuel. I have a central furnace to heat the condo so the fireplace would just be for fun as I care about the sight of fire, as long as it isn’t my condo that is burning! Speaking of my HVAC system, I also suppose it is time to check the furnace filter because I haven’t cleaned it in an undoubtedly long time and I bet that it is quite dirty at this point. I normally do it every more than two months however I took a trip to the US and forgot to do it before leaving and now it has been about seven months since cleaning the filter. I would simply care to see if they make a washable HEPA filter for gas furnaces because I suppose it would do a much better job of cleaning the air of any odors that the furnace puts out. My furnace is much older and seems to give off more odors when it is running.
