To infuse your home with a cozy and inviting atmosphere, nothing compares to the enchanting ambiance of a propane fireplace. Here are some of the ways propane fireplaces leave wood-burning fireplaces far behind.
Convenience: If you want a fire in a wood-burning fireplace, you need wood, which needs to be brought into the house. Then, you need to build and light the fire. And then, you wait for it to get going.
You get a full, warm fire with just the push of a button when you have a propane fireplace. Also, just turn it off when you’re done. No worries about embers, ashes or soot.
Superior energy efficiency: If you’re wondering about a propane fireplace’s fuel consumption, here’s a general guideline: Every 100,000 Btu’s typically requires around one gallon of propane. For instance, if you have a 50,000 Btu fireplace, you can expect it to consume one gallon of propane for every two hours of use.
Modern technology has paved the way for remarkably efficient and cost-effective propane fireplaces, boasting up to 80% heat efficiency, providing substantially more warmth than traditional wood fires. In stark contrast, a staggering 90% of the heat generated by a wood-burning fireplace is wasted and expelled through the chimney. Have you ever experienced a room where the temperature rapidly drops as the fire weakens? This occurs because virtually all the heat has been lost through the flue.
Cost-effectiveness: When you compare the costs and efforts associated with running a wood-burning fireplace to those of using propane, you’ll be amazed at how much simpler and more cost-effective it is to have a propane fireplace in your home!
Propane fireplaces offer both beauty and cost-effectiveness, making them a superior alternative to wood-burning fireplaces. On average, a cord of wood can cost around $300, not including delivery fees or the expenses of stacking, which can surpass $80. Investing in a propane fireplace presents an economically sound solution for your home. There is also the cost of maintaining and repairing the masonry chimney with a wood-burning fireplace.
They can go anywhere: If you want to add a propane fireplace to your family room, dining room, primary bedroom or elsewhere in your home, they are installed quickly with much less hassle and expense than a wood-burning fireplace. That’s because no masonry fireplace and chimney is needed!
Absolutely not! You not only get to choose your style of propane fireplace, but you can also choose your style of gas logs to go with it!
We offer high-quality gas logs that are crafted to look like real wood. You can go with a traditional look with oak, a more rustic look with pine or hickory or choose a coastal vibe with driftwood.
Whichever style you choose, we’ll make sure you get the proper size that fits your fireplace not only for scale and aesthetics but also for safety.
If you already have a masonry fireplace in your home, you have the option to convert it to propane for the added comfort and convenience that propane gas fireplaces offer. When making this choice, you can opt for either a vented or vent-free product, depending on your priorities.
However, it’s important to check the local codes and requirements for propane gas fireplaces before deciding. Vent-free propane gas fireplaces may be prohibited in some communities due to the minimal amount of exhaust they generate.
Propane gas fireplaces should get regular, professional maintenance. The trained, experienced service technicians at Callahan’s Gas can provide that so you can continue to enjoy the comfort of your propane fireplace without worry for years to come.
