Plan ahead: Add A Cozy Propane Fireplace To Your Home

propane gas fireplace tennesseeMid-August during a hotter-than-average summer may not seem like the best time to be thinking about a fireplace – but when you look at the calendar and realize that the official start of fall is only six weeks away, it could be exactly the time to begin plans for your propane-powered dream hearth.

Imagine coming home this fall and winter and starting a fire at the flick of a switch, with no wood-fire set-up and clean-up hassles. You get that and more when you install a propane gas fireplace. But how do you choose fireplace for your eastern Tennessee or southern Virginia home? Here are some basics to consider.

Choosing a propane hearth

There are two basic categories of propane hearths:

  • Propane fireplaces and stoves (features you install along a blank wall); and
  • Propane fireplace inserts and log sets (devices you add to an existing wood-burning fireplace).

Questions to consider

Whichever option you choose, you will have to answer three basic questions:

  1. How will it be vented? There are three common venting options: direct, natural, and vent-free. The one that is most practical and safe will depend on conditions in your home, local fire and safety requirements, and your budget.
  2. How much room do I have? –The size of a gas fireplace will often determine how much heat it can produce. You’ll need to know how much space you can spare for a fireplace – and how much heat you will need to warm the room.
  3. How do I want it to look? – There are many trim features and options available for your fireplace – from simple modern to more classic designs.

Our propane fireplace experts can help you answer these questions and any others you might have so you can get started on the road to your dream propane fire feature!
