What’s not enjoyable is the work involved with a wood-burning fireplace. Once you’re done schlepping in the wood, you must build and light the fire. Then, when you’re done, you have a mess of ashes to clean up.

Or, worse, you may not have a fireplace.

Parker Gas can help with both of these issues! We sell, install, and service propane fireplaces and hearth products from top makers including White Mountain Hearth, Realfyre, HeatMaster, Monessen, and Buck Stove.

Propane usage for fireplaces

If you’re searching for a way to bring warmth and atmosphere into your home, then look no further than a propane fireplace. You may be curious about how much fuel it requires. As a general rule, every 100,000 BTUs uses approximately one gallon of propane. For example, if you have a 50,000 BTU fireplace then you can expect it to use one gallon every two hours that it is in use.

Making a comparison between the effort and money you invest in your wood-burning fireplace to that of a propane fireplace, will make many people astonished about how economical and simple it is to have a propane hearth in their home!

Choosing a propane fireplace to add warmth and ambiance to your home is the smarter, simpler option compared to constructing a masonry fireplace. The installation will take only an entire day or less, plus you can install it wherever best suits your space!

Can you convert a wood-burning fireplace to propane?

Transforming a wood-burning fireplace to propane is an effortless process with the help of gas logs and propane fireplace insert!

If you’re looking for an aesthetically pleasing, life-like flame, propane fireplaces are the way to go over electric fireplaces. You’ll be able to choose from a variety of gas logs with styles ranging from traditional oak to rustic birch and coastal driftwood that look just like real wood. And modern technology has made it so you can enjoy this beauty without sacrificing any comfort or convenience!

Enjoy the convenience of a cozy fire at your fingertips with a propane fireplace: just press one button and you have fire! When finished, simply turn it off without having to worry about any cleanup.

A propane fireplace offers more efficient and effective heating than a wood-burning fireplace, so your room can quickly become warm and stay that way for longer. An outstanding efficiency of up to 80% can be achieved by installing a propane fireplace insert, far surpassing that of an ordinary wood fire. Surprisingly, almost 90% of the heat produced by a wood-burning fireplace is drawn out through the chimney! Consequently, when your fire starts to lose its intensity, you might find your room getting colder pretty quickly.
