Fireplaces are one of the best parts of winter! Some of our favorite holiday stories even feature them! However, traditional wood-burning fireplaces can be incredibly difficult to install, manage and maintain. Luckily, there is another way you can have the warmth and comfort of a fireplace in your home, without hassle.
A propane gas fireplace provides all of the benefits of a wood-burning fire, but with less effort and cleanup. Here are a few advantages of a propane fireplace:
Convenience and cost: If your home already runs on propane, installation and maintenance will be fast and easy. Propane is also less expensive than purchasing wood over time, and performs far better than electric models that can drive up your energy bills. If you already have a propane fireplace, it’s even easier to add another to a master bedroom or home office.
Cleanliness: Because propane fireplaces are not burning wood, they will not leave soot and ash behind after use. Unlike a wood-burning fireplace, you don’t run the risk of tracking grime into your home after cleaning your fireplace or adjusting logs. Not to mention the smoke that can invade your living space and leave clothing and upholstery smelling like a campfire.
Reliability: You never have to worry about having firewood on hand when cold weather sneaks up on you. On days where snow and rain appear unexpectedly, having a fire going indoors is comforting and part of what makes us look back fondly on winter weather. If the power goes out, you’ll still have a source of heat and light, quickly. Avoid venturing into the elements to gather wood by having a propane fireplace, which is always ready with the flip of a switch.
Socializing: A propane fireplace can be the perfect way to get your family together in one space! Everyone wants to gather around the warmest spot of the house, and the result will be more socializing and bonding time between family members and friends, especially during holiday parties. What a great memory-maker!
