A quick check of local media will yield many recent stories of house fires and even deaths that were caused by improperly-installed or cheaply-made space heaters and other heating products. In today’s day and age, there is little reason why anyone should be cold or put in a dangerous situation when the temperatures drop. A great option for many homeowners and renters is a vent-free fireplace. When properly installed, this is an affordable and economical option to keep your house warm and your family safe during the cold winter months.
What Is a Vent-Free Fireplace?
A vent-free fireplace is simply a fireplace that is installed in your home with no need for a chimney or a vent to the outside like a traditional fireplace requires. A traditional fireplace works by bringing in fresh air from outside your home, and then returning the byproducts of the fire back outside. A vent-free fireplace burns air from inside your home and does not require a vent to release the byproducts of the fire.
Benefits of a Vent-Free Fireplace
A vent-free fireplace is more affordable than other heating products. There are very few changes, if any, that need to be made to your home to ensure proper installation. A vent-free fireplace is also much more affordable to purchase and install than a traditional fireplace. In addition, a vent-free fireplace is much more convenient; vent-free fireplaces can be installed in nearly any location that you wish. Vent-free fireplaces are much more efficient than their vented counterparts. Vent-free fireplaces are typically rated at over 99% efficiency; this allows you to make the most of your heating fuel and allows you to purchase less to heat the same amount. These heat sources are very versatile and provide heat at a lower cost than other competing products.
A vent-free fireplace is a great option for nearly any home or office. For more information on the wide range of vent-free fireplaces that are available, contact us today.
