Propane Fireplaces: Why Every Home Should Have One
Who doesn’t love the warmth and cozy ambiance of having a fire in your home’s fireplace on a cold night? But, when many people think of having an indoor fireplace, they think of traditional wood-burning fireplaces and all of the hassles that come along with them—the smoke, the smell, and of course, hauling and stacking heavy firewood. If you’d like to heat your home with an indoor fireplace, but don’t want to deal with the annoyances of wood-burning fireplaces, then a propane version is the ideal solution!
Propane Fireplaces Provide Warmth at the Flip of a Switch
Propane fireplaces are easy to operate. Standard models only require you to flip a switch to start the fire! Higher end models come with turndown controls that let you control the heat output, meaning you can heat the room to the desired temperature without overheating the space. Some remote control units even are capable of integrating “a thermostat so the fireplace can ‘dial-in’ the exact heat output to keep the room at a set temperature” (Residential Fireplaces | PERC (propane.com)). They are easy to use and provide even heating to your home.
The Benefits of Propane Fireplaces
Not only do propane fireplaces heat your home with a real flame, they do so more efficiently and cleaner than wood-burning fireplaces (Residential Fireplaces | PERC (propane.com)). They have a 90% efficiency rating, whereas wood-burning fireplaces only have 15% (Residential Fireplaces | PERC (propane.com)). In addition to being more efficient, they “provide six times the heating capacity of wood burning models” (Fireplaces | PERC (propane.com)).
Additionally, propane fireplaces burn much cleaner than wood fireplaces. This is because “propane carries a smaller environmental footprint and produces fewer particulate emissions and less carbon monoxide than wood-burning units” (Residential Fireplaces | PERC (propane.com)). So, you can heat your home while making a much less detrimental impact on the environment.
