How Does A Propane Gas Fireplace Work?
There’s something special about the warmth and ambiance that a fireplace brings to a home. A propane gas fireplace will give you that real flame experience—and so much more.
Propane Fireplace Basics
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 require minimal 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!
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.
With today’s propane fireplace inserts, you can get the heat you need on a cold day, and turn it down when you don’t need as much heat– thanks to multi-stage temperature controls. You can’t do that with a wood burning fireplace.
Another option to warm up with: propane space heaters
High-efficiency direct-vent propane space heaters are another way to raise comfort levels while saving money. By enabling targeted, high-efficiency zone heating to the most used rooms in your living space, you won’t have to rely as much on your primary furnace.
Thermostat-controlled direct-vent and vent-free space heaters are portable and easy to set up. They are also easy to install, incredibly efficient and extremely safe. They burn cleaner and generate fewer pollutants than electric space heaters.
