There’s something special about the warmth and ambiance that a fireplace brings to a living space—especially at this time of year! A propane gas fireplace will give you that real flame experience—and much more.

Propane gas fireplaces can be installed indoors or out and they are more efficient and better for the environment than wood-burning models. They 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.

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.

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. You’ll help the environment too because propane burns much cleaner than wood. A wood-burning fireplace can produce 4,000% more emissions than a propane unit!

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.

Another Option to Warm Up with: Propane Space Heaters

Propane space heaters are less expensive to operate than electric space heaters. They are also easy to install, incredibly efficient and extremely safe. Propane space heaters also produce fewer emissions compared to electric and fuel oil space heaters.
