Burning on propane? This is how it works!
Enjoying a crackling fire from your gas fire without being connected to the gas network, that's possible with a propane gas fire! If your gas fire has been converted to propane, the supply of gas will be different than if you heat your house using natural gas. With a propane gas fire, the fireplace is connected to a gas bottle and therefore not to the gas network. The gas bottle supplies gas that can burn the fire for an average of 18 hours. Do you connect multiple gas bottles to the fire? Then you can burn longer without refilling the bottles.
Natural gas and propane are no different in use. As with natural gas, combustion takes place when burning propane gas. This means that there must be a supply of oxygen for ignition and that flue gases are released during ignition. A propane gas fire must therefore be connected to a suitable supply and exhaust duct.
Is your gas fire suitable for conversion to propane gas?
As we said before, the gases are not exactly the same. Has your gas fire not been converted? Then it is not (yet) possible to burn propane. Not every gas fire is suitable for conversion to propane either. At DRU, a large part of the range of gas fires is suitable for conversion to propane. Most DRU or Global fireplaces are suitable for conversion to propane in the short term.
