    Propane Fireplace

    Appliance Spotlight: Propane Fireplaces

    Posted by Brittany E
    Not all fireplaces were created equally. We can all agree that there’s nothing better than cozying up next to the fire on a frigid winter day, but you may be selling yourself short if that fireplace isn’t powered by propane. Keep reading to find out what puts propane fireplaces ahead of the rest!
    1.  EASY TO USE
    When it comes to fireplaces, it doesn’t get much easier than propane. Propane fireplaces offer features that wood-burning fireplaces only dream about, including: push-to-start, remote control options, advance temperate control and more!
    Fireplaces powered by propane offer fireplace efficiency (FE) ratings exceeding 90%. By comparison, traditional wood-burning fireplaces are about 15% efficient. The lack of efficiency in wood-burning fireplaces is largely contributed to the loss of thermal energy, and warm air, through the chimney and out of the home. 
    3.  GO GREEN
    Propane carries a smaller environmental footprint, produces fewer particulate emissions and less carbon monoxide than wood-burning units. When you burn wood, you’re releasing more harmful toxins into the environment, and your home, than you know of. Trees absorb a vast array of man-made air pollutants, which are then re-released into the air of your home when you start a fire. Benzene, formaldehyde and benzo-a-pyrene are just a few of the man-made toxins known to be absorbed by wood. 
    Besides a professional cleaning and adjustment, which is recommended annually, propane fireplaces are virtually maintenance-free! Wood-burning fireplaces, on the other hand, require regular cleanings as they produce creosote as the wood is burned, which may become a fire hazard as it accumulates.
