There is no shortage of options for gas stoves in the marketplace today. Gas stoves have become a fixture in the heating industry because of their convenience, efficiency, and beauty. When looking at purchasing a gas stove there are a number of things you should consider:
Aesthetics – Gas stoves come in all shapes and sizes and can range anywhere from classic to modern in their design. When considering the best option for your space it’s important to decide on what type of look you’re going for in the room and how the stove will lend to that appearance.
Ignition System – Gas stoves are available in electronic (intermittent) ignition systems or millivolt systems. The difference between the two is that millivolt systems have a standing pilot that is burning at all times whereas the electronic system is only ignited when you want to turn the stove on. Some stoves on the market have more features with their electronic ignition systems that you may find more appealing, however, so be sure to talk with your local hearth dealer about the available ignition systems for the stove you’re interested in.
Product Quality – As we mentioned above, there are a lot of options out there when it comes to gas stoves. How do you know what you’re getting is going to last? Installing a gas stove is expensive (running gas lines, venting, etc.) and you don’t want to waste that investment by installing a stove that doesn’t last or doesn’t perform. It’s important to investigate the quality of the product that you install – using reputable brand names from a reputable shop will ensure that you’re getting a stove that will last the test of time!
