Imagine this scenario:
You have a beautiful fireplace mantle but the fireplace itself doesn’t work well.
Or perhaps you’re tired of the hassles of a wood-burning fireplace but still want to enjoy the warmth of a glowing fire this winter.
In either scenario, you’re a perfect candidate for a propane fireplace insert.
Liquid propane fireplace inserts are heating appliances that are professionally installed inside your old fireplace surround to replace either its wood-burning section or an older gas unit.
There are many benefits to using a propane gas fireplace insert, including:
Saving on renovating costs: Renovating can involve costly and inconvenient structural work. Gas inserts for fireplaces are sized to fit your existing fireplace housing, so no rebuild is needed.
A new propane fireplace insert is more insulated and more highly efficient than your old wood fireplace –especially if it was a wood-burning model. When your heating system is more efficient, your electricity bill gets smaller. Gas furnaces, on average, are about 30 percent more efficient than wood-burning models.
An open fire is inherently dangerous, even in a fireplace. Burning wood stacked too high can tumble into the room, and logs can throw sparks from popping wood onto people or pets. If there is a downdraft or a blockage in the chimney, smoke can back up and flow into the room. These problems are eliminated with a fireplace insert.
With a fireplace insert, there’s no gathering wood and kindling, no splinters, and no stoking. You can have an evening in front of the fire at just the flip of a switch on your remote control from your recliner in the comfort of your living room.
Less environmental impact
Less fuel needed means less environmental impact. Propane also burns cleaner than wood, so there are fewer carbon emissions with a propane fireplace insert.
Greater aesthetic value
A stylish fireplace insert can dress up even a plain brick mantle and façade, giving the room a nice facelift with a minimal investment. Gas logs, cast-iron designs: the aesthetic options are endless.
