Fireplace Design Concepts Different Kinds of Fireplaces

While masonry fireplaces where natural wood is burnt might be a typical sight in old, large houses, gas fireplaces are the most common these days, because they are simple to set up and use. Although masonry fireplaces may have an old world appeal of their own, they are not the most efficient way of heating up your home, as a large amount of heat escapes through the chimney.

A large variety of gas fireplaces are available, and of those, the vent gas fireplace is the one that can be installed to replace an existing wood burning fireplace. These fireplaces do not need wood or matches, and can be turned on at the flip of a switch!

An electric fireplace is also convenient for warming smaller sized sitting areas, where there is no facility to set up a chimney. An added advantage of these sorts of fireplaces is that they lower heating expenses significantly.

A prefabricated fireplace is also referred to as a zero-clearance fireplace, as they are highly insulated, and can be installed in the proximity of combustible products. They are often a great option in brand-new construction, as they are lighter in weight, and faster and easier to set up than conventional masonry fireplaces.

A wood burning stove is made from cast iron or brick line welded plate steel, and is basically a metal container for fire. Since a lot of modern wood burning ovens are airtight and allow the amount of air feeding the flame to be regulated in some manner, they tend to be highly efficient.For More Information Go To\nAir Conditioning Service Fort Collins CO
