Heller’s Gas, your Harrisburg PA propane supplier, not only delivers propane to your door, but also builds custom fireplaces to suit your needs.
Whether you’re considering converting your wood burning fireplace or adding a gas fireplace to your home, here are three reasons to choose a propane burning fireplace:
Propane provides a more efficient heat source.
A wood burning fireplace does little to warm a room. In fact, many fireplaces are drafty, pulling the warm air inside your room up the chimney. Propane fireplaces are simple to operate – just flip the switch and instantly heat a room in your home without ever chopping a piece of wood.
Propane is safe for people with allergies & asthma.
Propane is a cleaning burning fuel, resulting in fewer respiratory issues for people with asthma and allergies. Since the glass doors of a propane burning fireplace are always shut, the fireplace exhausts to the outdoors making it a healthier option for families.
Propane is an approved clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act.
Substituting propane is a smart step towards cleaner air. Wood burning fireplaces can surprisingly pollute the air. Using propane reduces the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide and air pollutants like carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide
