Four Reasons to Upgrade Your Hearth with Propane Fireplace Insert
How many times have you said “no” to your wood-burning fire over the years because of the hassles of setup and cleanup?
With a propane fireplace insert, you can get the warm glow of a fire without the work of wood-burning – all while keeping your room much warmer for much less money.
What is a propane fireplace insert?
A propane fireplace insert is basically a self-contained combustion box that fits inside your existing wood burning fireplace and vents through your chimney.
Compared to a wood-burning fireplace, a propane fireplace insert is:
- More efficient – Propane fireplaces run at about 90 percent efficiency – more than five times higher than the efficiency of a wood burning fireplaces. That means more heat for less money.
- Healthier – Wood burning fireplaces create hundreds of pounds of pollution in a heating season. Propane fireplaces? Less than a pound. Burning wood also releases harmful gases and particle emissions that can lead to other health issues.
- Safer – Burning wood can create a buildup of creosote in your chimney – the most dangerous fire hazard for a wood-burning fireplace. Propane fireplaces don’t produce creosote – or embers and smoke, either.
- (Much!) more convenient – With a propane fireplace, you’ll get an evening in front of the fire with just a flip of the switch. No more wood gathering and chopping, no more ash cleanup, and no more wood stacking. Fire inserts also require very little service or cleaning, apart from simple annual maintenance.
The bottom line: propane fireplace inserts are a stylish and efficient way to heat your space – and more importantly, they’re a feature in your home that you’ll actually use and enjoy.
