Differences Between Gas Log Fireplaces and Wood Burning Fireplaces

- 4:08 pm - December 11th, 2019

At Parker Oil Company we offer a wide variety of heating appliances, including propane-fueled fireplaces! Are you considering installing a fireplace in your home, but aren’t sure if gas or wood-burning is the way to go? We can help you see why a propane fireplace is the right choice!

Gas Fireplaces…

  • Are better for the environment when compared to wood-burning alternatives

  • Don’t require a chimney, instead the exhaust is vented to an external wall or roof vent

  • Are easy to use. With the flip of a switch, your fireplace roars to life!

Wood-Burning Fireplaces…

  • Require a chimney to vent the smoke. If the home lacks one, then one must be installed – which can be costly and take time

  • Aren’t the cleanest, with the ash, soot and wood creating all kinds of messes that need to be tended to in order to keep the family safe

  • Require regular sweeping and inspections

If you’re looking for the ambiance of a fireplace without the messy clean up and maintenance, a propane-fueled fireplace from Parker Oil Company fits the bill! Contact us online today or call to learn more about our products in stock.
