When repairing or refurbishing your heating unit, you can add a few parts to give your propane fireplace and hearth area the look you have always wanted. The fireplace accessories you select will depend on the décor theme and budget.
- Fireplace surround – The surround includes a mantle, outer hearth, and back panel, which you can buy as a single kit or separate pieces.
- Fireplace inserts – An insert is suitable for a masonry fireplace that needs an upgrade for better efficiency. An insert will burn pellets, logs, or gas. They also add a decorative element to your stove.
- Fireplace panels – Another way to boost the appearance of your hearth is to line it with a panel. Refractory panels are designed in a variety of styles and shapes. They are heat resistant and limit heat transfer in the firebox region.
Fireplaces come with several remote control alternatives. The number of features and the type of natural gas stove should guide your choice.
- SMART-BATT – This is suited for a hearth that was wired without electricity. The remote uses thermostatic temperature control to turn the flame on/off. It has a child-safety feature and a countdown timer.
- SMART-STAT – It requires 120 volts to be wired to a furnace. You can set the temperature between 45 and 99 degrees using the thermostatic settings.
- RCT-MLT – It doubles as a remote thermostat for Heatilator fireplaces. Fan setting adjustment is one of its top features. The LED/LCD readout tells you the temperature in a room.
