Propane fireplaces can also easily be ignited using a simple switch either directly at the fireplace location or by remote control. These features not only save you money but give you peace of mind in regards to safety. There’s no lit embers to worry about and with a propane fireplace and you’ll also have cleaner air in your home and in your environment.

You won’t have to worry about the cleanup associated with charcoal or the troubles of lighting it on a windy day.
