Astria Orion LR

What could be better than sitting in front of a nice, warm fireplace on a cold winter evening? Relaxing in front of dancing flames while you unwind from a hard day at work?

From realistic features to an attractive design, this Astria fireplace is one that you’ll love to add to any room in your home.

We’ll take a closer look at the Astria Orion LR, its manufacturer and information about other Astria fireplace products, and how you can become the proud owner of this modern gas fireplace.

About Astria Fireplaces

From its mission to be the “preferred” fireplace manufacturer offering innovative and stylish products for the creation of an “alluring atmosphere” to its commitment to top quality and technological capabilities, Astria Fireplaces places itself among the leaders in the field.

One of four brands of Innovative Hearth Products (IHP), Astria Fireplaces offers nearly thirty models of gas, electric, and wood-burning fireplaces and Astria fireplace inserts in traditional and contemporary styles. Some models to choose from include those with oblong openings, see-through styles, and multiple viewing angles.

Innovative Hearth Products began as Lennox Hearth Products in 1994; from 1998 to 2006, other manufacturers were acquired, and in 2012 a merger between Lennox and FMI Products formed Innovative Hearth Products.

Though propane is considered a safer heating fuel than natural gas, mainly because it is easier to detect a propane gas leak as compared to a natural gas leak, there are still safety topics that should be discussed when you’re considering the installation of propane fireplaces or any other propane products.

It is always important that you use professionals, like trained technicians from Diversified Energy, to properly install propane gas lines. These experts in the gas line and gas product installations will adhere to safety codes and product specifications so your fireplace, grill, stove, or other units will operate efficiently, properly, and safely.

With its distinct “rotten egg” odor, and added chemical to propane for leak detection purposes, you can easily identify a propane gas leak. Be aware of this smell and immediately contact your propane supplier or fire department to handle the issue.

Adding a carbon monoxide detector or detectors, checking periodically to ensure that your pilot light is lit, using professionals to re-light a pilot light, and making sure that your propane storage tank does not run out of gas are all safety practices that you should incorporate that will keep you and your family safe when using propane-powered fireplaces and other products.
