(Q) What fuel should we use in our fireplace?
(A) Natural gas is the most popular and common by far. Natural gas fireplaces are safe, clean and reliable. The heat can be adjusted and also controlled by thermostat.
Propane offers all the advantages of natural gas and can be delivered to sites where natural gas isn’t available. While more expensive then natural gas, propane is still safe, clean and economical.
Wood offers a clean, reliable and luxurious heat to any space. While not for everyone, the ambiance of real wood fire is truly amazing!!
(Q) Wait, wood? Isn’t that dirty and bad for the environment?
(A) Modern wood fireplaces have extremely clean emissions (under 2 gram per hour compared to older units with 30-40 grams or more). This means no plume of smoke coming from your chimney. Responsibly sourced wood fires have no carbon footprint at all. The same amount of carbon would be released if the tree fell and rotted in the woods.
