Check Out Our Propane Alternatives

Propane has long been considered a clean burning and cheap way to heat your home in fireplaces, grills, and more. However, many of our customers have noticed the serious shortage of propane in Michigan – and across the Midwest. Lowering the thermostat or using the fireplace less frequently can help conserve propane. However, having a cold home during harsh winter conditions is not a long term solution.

Wood fireplaces and stoves.

There is nothing quite like the smell, sight, and warmth of a crackling, wood burning fire. Modern wood burning fireplaces and stoves have come a long way from their inefficient masonry counterparts; new wood burning heating appliances are more efficient than ever before. In addition, they can be used to heat everything from a room to an entire home.

Along with their improving efficiency, many homeowners choose wood because of its low cost, environmental impact, and availability. Buying firewood is often an inexpensive endeavor; enterprising homeowners can even cut, chop, stack, and season their own wood for pennies. Likewise, as a renewable resource there is little risk of ever running out of firewood. Finally, firewood is readily available and can be bought almost anywhere from private dealers to at local home improvement stores.

Pellet stoves and inserts.

Pellet stoves and inserts are an excellent alternative for homeowners who like the look and feel of wood fires but want an easier to use, more efficient alternative. Pellets are created from compressed, recycled wood parts and pieces; they burn hotter, create less smoke, and less behind less ash and residue than traditional wood logs. Likewise, they are considered to be carbon neutral by many. This is since they are made from recycled parts of an already renewable energy source.

Pellet stoves and inserts are easy to operate. Depending on the size of the hopper, it may only need to be reloaded once per day. Bags of pellets are relatively inexpensive and typically resemble bags of mulch. This makes them easy to stack and store.

Gas fireplaces and inserts.

Many homeowners who already use a propane heating appliance prefer the benefits of gas to other fuel sources. We offer a variety of natural gas fireplaces, inserts, and stoves to match your home’s décor and style. Whether you prefer sleek and contemporary or rustic and traditional, we have a variety of gas heating appliances to meet your needs.

Don’t let Michigan’s propane shortage leave you out in the cold this winter. Instead, consider switching to an alternate heat source. Contact the experts at Clean Sweeps of Michigan today for more information on finding the right wood, pellet, or natural gas heating appliance for your home!
