Winter is a great time to cuddle up beside a roaring fire and watch the snow fall with a hot beverage.

And for many, that roaring fire comes courtesy of a propane fireplace. Not only is it a cost-effective way to heat your home, it’s a low-maintenance way to relax. Here are some benefits of propane fireplaces.

Easy Starts

What would you rather do after a long day at work? Chop your own firewood, haul it inside, and struggle to light it or push a button for an instant flame?

We thought so.

Propane takes all the hard work out of starting a fire, so you’re left with more time to enjoy it.

Peace of Mind

With a wood-burning fireplace, there are lots of questions. Is the fire really out? Is it okay to leave it unattended for a brief period? How safe is it?

Propane fireplaces erase that worry.

When you’re done enjoying the fire, just push a button. No need to smother it or double check that it’s out.

Low Maintenance

Propane fires are hands-off. Since the logs inside them are fake, you don’t have to clean up soot. And there’s no worries about creosote, a dangerous, flammable byproduct of burning wood. There’s very little cleaning involved.


Since propane is cheaper than other kinds of fuel, propane fireplaces are also cost effective. And propane fireplaces also heat rooms more evenly than wood-burning fireplaces, so they can also be used as an alternative to space heaters and furnaces in smaller areas, helping you save on your energy bills.
