Top 3 Reasons to Choose a Propane Fireplace or Log Set

1. Propane Gas Fireplaces are Easier

While the idea of a wood fireplace might seem appealing in theory, actually using it is a different story. Collecting firewood and kindling is time-consuming enough, without factoring in getting the fire going. With a gas fireplace or log set, all you do is press a button to make your fire burn brightly!

2. Propane Gas Fireplaces Require Less Maintenance & Cleanup

If you’ve ever used a wood-burning fireplace, then you know what a headache it can be to clean up, not to mention the required routine maintenance. One of the biggest benefits of a gas log set or fireplace is that there’s no afterburn cleanup required. It is recommended that you have annual maintenance performed, which involves a quick visit from the propane professionals at FSi.

3. Propane Gas Fireplaces Pose Less Safety Risks

Traditional wood fireplaces come with a higher risk of a fire spreading throughout your home, and also pose more of a risk to children or animals who may find a way past your fire screen. With a gas fireplace or log set, the fire is contained and the risk of a fire spreading to other parts of your home is much less. Most gas fireplaces also have a protective barrier to prevent anyone from getting too close to the flames.
