Winter will be arriving shortly and now is a good time to look into how you are heating your home. Is it cost-efficient? Is it safe? Fireplaces are a great choice but choosing the right one for you can be difficult. Electric, wood burning and vent free fireplaces are all good options. Here’s what you need to know when choosing the right fireplace.
Buying an electric fireplace is the right decision to make if you are one for cleanliness. This type of fireplace requires minimal cleaning, and the heat is produced through your home’s electricity. The electric fireplace also lacks the odor of gas or oils and does a fantastic job of heating a room as well. Most importantly, they are a safe alternative, especially for small rooms with inadequate ventilation.
Wood Burning Fireplaces
For a more traditional look, a wood burning fireplace is the way to go. A natural fire always seems to make a house feel like a home. This option is ideal if you are considering building a new home as you will be able to place a chimney strategically so that is provides both function and style to your space.
Vent Free Fireplaces
Vent-free fireplaces have several advantages. They don’t require any bulky vent pipe or chimney, which means they have much more flexibility in terms of placement and can be used in small homes where it would be almost impossible to install a vented fireplace. And, if you’re searching for efficiency, a vent-free fireplace is the way to go. Vented units lose a significant amount of the warm air they produce up their chimneys. Vent free fireplaces are entirely self-contained. This allows all of the heat to remain inside your home.
