Frequently Asked Questions

Is a pilot light needed to operate a propane fireplace?

No. Automatic ignition allows the propane unit to efficiently and safely start the fireplace without a standing pilot light.

I like traditional wood fireplaces. Why should I consider propane?

With fireplace efficiency ratings over 90 percent, propane fireplaces can offer efficient space heating to parts of a home. By comparison, traditional wood-burning fireplaces are about 15 percent efficient, largely because they lose thermal energy from combustion up the chimney, as well as drawing heated air out of the home. Plus, with propane there is no messy clean up or wood to store.

Aren't electric fireplaces better for the environment?

No. Propane fireplaces are more environmentally friendly than electric fireplace units. The electricity used in electric fireplaces is often generated by coal-fired power plants which generate significant CO2 emissions, along with other pollutants. Plus, propane fireplaces produce fewer particulate emissions and less carbon monoxide compared with wood-burning fireplaces. In fact, jurisdictions in some parts of the country restrict the use of traditional wood-burning fireplaces during certain times of the year due to their detrimental air quality impact.
