Why Choose a Propane Fireplace?
A propane fireplace provides homeowners with peace of mind. With the simple push of a button, you can light your fire and relax in a warm environment.

Propane is so popular, we are seeing a surge in the number of people asking about outdoor fireplaces with propane inserts.
Propane takes less fuel to produce heat equivalent to natural gas. Propane fireplaces are cheaper and easier to maintain than a gas fireplace. It is important to understand the brand you are using when you handle the maintenance and clean-up of a propane fireplace.
