Benefits of Propane Gas Logs
When the temperature drops, there is nothing more comforting than sitting in front of a fireplace to warm up. Whether you’re curled up reading a book or you are just relaxing and watching the flames, there is something so peaceful about a fire burning.
Unfortunately, if you have a traditional wood burning stove, you have to interrupt the calm and serenity you feel in front of the fire to add more wood or stoke it to maintain its warmth. With a wood burning fireplace you also must consider the mess and the cleanup.
Never ruin the moment again by installing a high quality set of propane gas logs in your home.
Clean and Simple
If your home has a fireplace and you have access to propane gas and propane refills, you can create a warm and relaxing home without the mess of wood burning.
Gas logs are made using refractory cement or ceramic materials that are non-combustible, so you never have to worry about the mess and hassle that comes with burning natural wood.
Not only is there less mess, lighting your fire has never been easier. You have the ability to turn your fire pit on with the touch of a button and can choose to leave it on for an hour or the entire day. The fire will burn steadily all day long, no need to throw more wood on the fire.
Today’s gas logs are beautifully designed, and hand painted to closely resemble real wood as possible. Your guests will be amazed when they hear that you are not burning real wood.
You can choose virtually any kind of logs you wish, from white Burch to split oak. The possibilities are endless. With propane gas logs you can truly customize the look of your fireplace and make it exactly what you wish.
The dangers with a wood burning fireplace are many, from sparks flying to logs rolling, there are always dangers involved with burning natural wood. Not to mention the fact that natural wood requires that it be cut, stacked and brought in from the outdoors periodically.
When you choose a gas log fueled fireplace, the risks associated are minimal compared to natural wood heat. Of course, there are safety precautions to follow as with any gas appliance, but adherence to the instructions helps to ensure very minimal safety threats.
While gas leaks are uncommon, it is strongly recommended that you install a carbon monoxide detector.
After the initial installation cost, the annual cost to run your propane heat versus natural wood is much less. Your gas logs will last for many years and will provide an excellent source of heat all winter long without ever having to replenish firewood.
Of course, you will need to have periodic propane refills, but those can be set up and scheduled easily with a local propane supplier.
