Do you have a wood-burning fireplace that you never use because of the mess and bother? Maybe you should consider converting to a propane fireplace. Propane-fueled fireplaces add ambiance and efficient supplemental heat without the mess, smoke and ash of a wood-burning fireplace. And a gas hearth or stove is much safer, too. No more playing with matches and waiting for tricky kindling to catch—you can turn on and adjust the flame with a wall switch or even a remote control and turn it off when you are done instead of waiting for embers to burn out.
The first step is to decide whether you want vented or vent-free gas logs. With vented logs— often used if you are converting a traditional fireplace to propane—you’ll get a wide, lifelike flame that is most like a genuine wood fire. However, a good amount of the heat generated heat escapes through the chimney flue or damper.
Because no chimney is necessary, a vent-free set is easy to install, and you can incorporate the charm and warmth into virtually any room, including living rooms and family rooms, but also kitchens and dining rooms. Create your dream master suite or a spa-like bathroom escape, just by adding a gas fireplace. You’ll get outstanding energy efficiency, too. To maintain a constant room temperature, most vent-free log sets are controlled by a thermostat.
When it comes to style, gas log inserts give you a wide range of options. These realistic-looking ceramic logs help create the look of a real wood fire with none of the fuss or mess. They can be used in your fireplace, a freestanding propane stove, or even an outdoor propane firepit. While some may like the smell of smoke from firewood, it contains fine particulate matter that can increase your risk of a heart attack, respiratory problems, and more. Switching to gas hearth or stove is a cleaner-burning option.
