Common Questions to Ask When Choosing a Hearth Product for Your Home

A propane hearth product is a great addition to any home; it provides warmth, creates a cozy atmosphere, and adds character to a room. Plus, propane hearth products are easy to use and economical. Since picking out a hearth product isn’t an everyday occurrence, customers often have questions about the products. Below are the most common questions that Holtzman Propane receives from our customers regarding hearth products:

What types of hearth products are available? We have many types of propane hearth products that can be installed in the home. These include traditional fireplaces, fireplace inserts, decorative cast-iron stoves, and gas logs. Decorative cast-iron stoves are free-standing devices that are installed where no previous structure existed, while gas logs and fireplaces inserts are used to convert woodburning fireplaces to propane. Fireplaces can be built into any remodel or new construction.

How will the unit be vented? Hearth products are available in vented and vent-free models. Vented units pipe exhaust outside and may also draw in outdoor air for combustion, so room oxygen is not depleted. Vent-free units don’t require outside venting and can be installed almost anywhere. While vented fireplaces offer more features and functionality, vent-free products are more efficient and economical.

How much heat will it provide? If you are looking to use your hearth product to heat your home, a cast-iron stove or traditional fireplace will provide the most warmth. If you are installing a hearth product to add ambiance to your home, gas logs or fireplace inserts may work better for you. Rest assured, the experts at Holtzman will help you find the perfect unit to fit your home.

What maintenance is required? As with any gas appliance, it is recommended to have inspections and cleaning done regularly by a trained professional. Our expert service techs can answer any questions you may have on the job, ensure everything is in good working order, and explain any repairs that may be needed.

Are there hearth products available to match my home’s décor? Yes! Whether your home is modern, craftsman, traditional, or anywhere in between, there is a hearth product that can complement any style.

If you’re ready to install a hearth product in your home, Holtzman is your go-to source! Our stores have a wide selection of gas fireplaces, fireplace inserts, decorative stoves and gas logs on display and our professionals are happy to answer any questions you may have.
