Propane vs. Wood Fireplaces

Which fireplace is right for your home?

gas fireplace maryland Many homes here in Southern Maryland have fireplaces, whether you live in an 18th-century Georgian home, a mid-century split-level, or one of today’s Modern Farmhouse style homes.

When winter is in full swing, there’s nothing more relaxing than curling up near a fire in the fireplace.

Although, the work that goes into making that happen is definitely not fun. You have to carry the wood inside, build the fire, and then wait for it to actually start producing heat. Only then can you finally relax.

Once the fire has died down, you have a mess of ashes to clear out.

What makes a propane fireplace better than a wood-burning one? Many things!

Have a fireplace anywhere you want it.

Would you like to install a fireplace, but don’t have an existing one and don’t want the expense of building one? A propane fireplace is ideal in this situation! Not only are they more affordable, but they can be placed in any room. For example, if you want to add some romance to your bedroom or make your family room cozier for winter gatherings, a propane fireplace would suit those needs perfectly!

If you already have an existing masonry fireplace, a propane fireplace insert and gas logs can quickly be installed there.

Have a fire without the work

A propane fireplace is easy to use. All you have to do is push a button, and you’ll have a fire. You can have your fire whenever you want it, and it will last as long as you want it. When you’re done, simply turn it off – no cleaning up ashes or soot afterwards!

Propane fireplaces: Better for you and the environment

When you burn wood, it creates about 28 pounds of particulate emissions that cause smog for every million BTUs (MMBTus) of heat output. Propane produces less than 1% of those emissions, so using propane reduces your carbon footprint!

Wood smoke might smell fragrant, but it is terrible for your health. Wood smoke contains small particles that can raise your risk of having a heart attack, respiratory difficulties, and other health problems. Fortunately, propane burns cleanly so you can avoid those risks.
