Cozying up to a warm fire may be the furthest thing from your mind as we head into the hottest stretch of the year here in West Virginia and western Maryland, but if you want to enjoy the benefits of a propane hearth this fall and winter, the time to start planning is now!
The question is, how do you pick the perfect propane hearth for your living space? Here are some basics to get you started.
Four Considerations When Choosing a Propane Hearth
Type of device – When choosing a propane hearth, a good place to start is to decide what type of feature you want to install. Propane hearths fall into two basic categories: freestanding devices you install where no feature is currently present (for example, a propane fireplace or propane stove), and devices that fit inside an existing masonry structure (such as a propane fireplace insert, which is basically glass-sealed combustion box).
Venting – Since propane hearths burn gas, they emit exhaust fumes. Direct vent hearths send those emissions harmlessly outside your home via a small tube. Vent-free hearths, on the other hand, allow a small amount of those exhaust fumes to dissipate in your living space. The venting option that’s best for you will depend on conditions in your home, local fire and safety requirements, and your budget.
Space – Generally speaking, the size of a gas fireplace will determine how much heat it can produce. You’ll need to know how much space you can spare for a fireplace – and how many BTUs you will need to warm the room.
Looks – There are many trim features and options available for your fireplace – from simple modern to more classic designs.
Our propane hearth 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!
