Fireplace and Hearth Installation in Martinsburg, WV
Add warmth and style to your home!
Roach Energy is proud to be a Hearth & Home Technologies Premier Dealer. On a cold and raw day here in eastern West Virginia and western Maryland, there’s nothing like relaxing in front of a warm, glowing fire.
But if you have a wood-burning fireplace, you’ve got some work to do first. There’s bringing in the wood (and maybe having to chop it). Then you have to build the fire, light it, and wait for it to get going before you can chill out with some coffee and pie.
Once you’re done, you have to deal with the mess that comes with the ashes and soot.
Would you like to skip all that? With a propane fireplace and other hearth products, you can get the heat without any hassle!
When you install a propane hearth product, you can enjoy a spellbinding fire with the flip of a switch or push of a button on the remote control! You can safely, swiftly and conveniently turn your flames on and off at will.
There are some other benefits propane fireplaces and hearths give you. For example, you can control the heat and the flame intensity without having to get up from the couch.
You also get great efficiency, as propane products can offer Fireplace Efficiency (FE) ratings of over 90%, compared to a paltry 15% for wood fireplaces.
What you don’t get are the potential health risks that come with a wood fire, like the fine particulate matter that can create or exacerbate respiratory problems and may even cause heart attacks. Propane burns cleanly, with almost no particulate matter and zero methane.
You can choose from a range of world-class propane-powered hearth products, including the following:
Fireplace inserts are designed to fit into your existing fireplace. They’re contained inside a metal box that goes into the hearth.
Gas logs, as the name suggests, are ceramic logs that sit inside an existing fireplace.
Freestanding stoves are cast iron products that sit inside your room and vent outside with a pipe.
You also have the choice of a vent-free or vented propane fireplace. Direct-vent fireplaces have more realistic flames and require a functional chimney or flue. You’ll lose some efficiency since some heat is lost during venting.
Vent-free fireplaces have higher heating efficiency ratings but less realistic flames. Also, since these products vent a small amount of combustion products indoors, you cannot install them in bedrooms or enclosed areas. Some municipalities prohibit them altogether.
