The Benefits of a Propane Fireplace

Brrr! It’s been a harsh winter so far here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Each week is bringing snowfall, icy conditions, and frozen temperatures. Good thing we can all huddle around our propane fireplaces to stay warm!

What’s that? Don’t have a propane fireplace? It’s never too late!

There are so many benefits of a propane fireplace. Not only does it keep you warm on those frosty days, but is more efficient and safer than a wood-burning one.

But what makes a propane fireplace better than a typical fireplace? We’re glad you asked.

No Muss, No Fuss

We all know that a fireplace can take a lot of work. If your wood is wet or not seasoned properly, it’s going to take some time to get your fire to light and catch on. Then there’s the ash and soot that needs to be cleaned out before you start another fire. Not to mention the mess wood logs can leave behind!

Propane fireplaces easily light every time with just a touch of a button. There’s no wood to worry about so there won’t be any ash or soot that needs cleaning. Just a clean-burning fireplace that will be the centerpiece of your home.

It’s Safer Than a Wood Fireplace

In a gas fireplace, you don’t have to worry about any stray embers hitting your carpet or smoke filling up the room. This makes wood fireplaces unsafe to leave unattended, even when it looks like it’s completely out.

With propane gas fireplaces, there are no embers and no smoke to worry about. And just like lighting the fire, that push of a button means the fire is officially out.

It’s More Efficient

A wood fire definitely sets a mood. But what it doesn’t do is warm you up! According to the U.S.Environmental Protection Agency, wood fireplaces are an extremely inefficient way to heat your home since the drafts can pull the warmer air up the chimney, making the room colder.

The same can’t be said for propane gas fireplace inserts. According to HGTV, a one-pipe vent fireplace can provide a 50% efficiency rating whereas a two-pipe vent model has a 70% efficiency rating.

Propane Gas Fireplaces are Cheaper

When comparing the cost of a gas fireplace with a wood fireplace, it’s clear to see that propane gas fireplaces are a much cheaper option. With a wood fireplace, you have to purchase a cord of wood every winter, plus cleaning costs to keep it properly maintained.

With propane, after purchasing the inserts, all you have to worry about is keeping your propane tanks filled. That’s all!
