Vermont is beautiful in the winter. And also really cold. That’s why so many of us love an evening curled up by a warm, comfortable fire after a long day.
But when you have a wood-burning fireplace, there’s a good bit of work to do before you can do that relaxing. You have to buy or chop firewood, then bring it into the home. Then you have to build and light a fire, and wait for it to warm up the room. Once the fire’s done, there’s the cleaning up the soot and ashes.
Take all that work off your plate with propane fireplace installation and gas logs from Dorr Oil.
With propane, you get all the heat but none of the hassle. Just press a button or flip a switch, and voilà! You have a fire! And when you’re ready to turn in for the night, just turn off the fireplace. That’s all there is to it.
With a propane fireplace, or a fireplace insert for your existing masonry wood-burning fireplace, you get ease and convenience.
Thanks to today’s technology, you get a lot more.
The flames flicker and dance, and look more like a real wood fire. But, unlike a wood fire, you can control the heat instantly. You can crank it up on a really cold day, or turn it down so you get just a bit of cozy warmth on a cool fall day. And you can program your temperature settings for specific times.
Some propane fireplace inserts come with blowers, so if you have an open-concept living space or a large area to heat, the heated air is pushed to all parts of the room for even and comfortable heating no matter where you are in the room.
When you have a propane fireplace, you get an energy-efficient source of supplemental heat, which means your furnace or boiler won’t have to work as hard to keep your home warm.
You can choose from a variety of styles when it comes to propane fireplaces, from country to Victorian to more modern. And propane fireplace inserts come in a wider range of sizes, so even homes with smaller or more narrow openings in their wood fireplaces can have a propane fireplace insert installed.
You also have the option of a vented propane fireplace or a vent-free one.
