Feel Right at Home with a Propane Gas Fireplace
December 5, 2018
There’s really something special about the warmth and ambiance that a fireplace brings to a home. And that feeling becomes extra special during the holiday season. One of the great benefits of a propane gas fireplace is that it will provide you with a real flame experience. With a flip of a switch, you’ll enjoy realistic flames.
But that’s just the beginning of this “fireside chat.”
- Propane gas fireplaces are maintenance-free, come in a variety of styles and pose a lower risk of a house fire than fireplaces that burn wood. You will also help the environment because propane burns much cleaner than wood. A wood-burning fireplace can produce 4,000% more emissions than a propane unit!
- With a fireplace that runs on propane gas, you’ll never have to get up and put another log on the fire or wait to make sure the fire is extinguished before you go to bed or leave the house.
- Propane gas fireplaces can be installed indoors or outside your home and they are more efficient than wood-burning models. They produce twice as much heat as wood fireplaces at about one-third of the cost, with no soot, ash or smoke. Propane fireplaces also deliver as much as six times the heating capacity of an electric fireplace.
- If you have an old wood fireplace, it’s easy to convert it to a clean-burning and safe fireplace gas insert.
Consider your fireplace options
If you’re looking for ambience, consider a vented gas log set, which allows you to add a freestanding “fireplace” to just about any room in your home. If you want a fireplace that serves as a heat source too, then a fireplace insert or freestanding gas fireplace may be the best choice.
