A propane gas log-set is easy to use, and our gas logs are carefully crafted to look like real wood. You can easily convert a conventional wood fireplace to a propane fireplace with a fireplace insert. If you’re looking to add comfort to your home for the coming season and beyond, here are five reasons to add propane gas logs to your home.


You won’t have to buy or chop wood, spend time cleaning up ash, or pay for chimney upkeep. You won’t even need to search for matches since you can start your propane gas logs from the comfort of your sofa with a remote control! Nothing could be easier! What’s another thing that’s easy? Installation, because you don’t have to go through weeks of hassle and mess (and the thousands of dollars in expenses) like you would with a masonry fireplace installation. The installation of most propane gas log sets, fireplaces, and fireplace inserts takes only a day!


There are a lot of expenses associated with a wood-burning fireplace that get eliminated when you switch to a gas log set. For every hour you use your propane fireplace, you’ll save at least 30% to 40% in costs. And that’s before adding in the cost of maintaining a masonry fireplace and chimney. Propane fireplaces convert most of the propane they consume to heat for your house.


If you have children or pets, a gas log fireplace is the way to go. It’s also an excellent option for tight places. Gas logs don’t create embers like firewood does.

Environmental friendliness

Burning wood releases about 28 pounds of smog-producing particulate matter for every million BTUs (MMBTUs) of heat output. Propane combustion produces less than 1% of that amount, so you’re dramatically shrinking your carbon footprint! 


With gas logs, you have complete control over the appearance of your fireplace. You can choose logs that look like your favorite type of wood, such as classics like oak or maple, coastal like driftwood, or rustic with birch or juniper. We’ll make sure the gas logs are not only the right style for your fireplace, but the right size as well. If you are purchasing a propane fireplace, you can choose the style that fits your home, including country, craftsman, contemporary, and more!
