Have you been considering a new fireplace or new fireplace insert for you home? While summer’s hot temperatures may have pushed the thought to the back of your mind, don’t wait until the weather cools off again to start thinking about a new fireplace. Explore your options now, so you can have your wood-burning, gas or electric fireplace in place in time for the first fire of fall!
Wood-burning fireplaces are the classic choice for homeowners. They offer the gentle warmth, traditional look and pleasant crackle most people associate with a hearth. While older open-hearth wood-burning fireplaces often are panned as an inefficient heat source, newer EPA-certified models of wood-burning fireplaces are available to provide you with the traditional look and feel of wood while adding a more heat to your home and less pollution to your neighborhood.
Gas fireplaces are ideal for people who love the warmth and glow of a fireplace but want more efficiency and less work. Gas fireplaces are the most energy-efficient option, returning up to 99 percent of the fire’s heat to your home and having little to no impact on air quality. Gas fireplaces are incredibly easy to use: They are ignited with the flip of a switch or the push of a button, and they can even be wired to a thermostat to provide a continual, steady heat source to your home. Gas fireplaces also are an excellent option for homes with space constraints. Where a traditional wood-burning fireplace may not be possible, a direct-vent fireplace can be placed on nearly any exterior wall. In rooms where an exhaust vent isn’t a possibility, a ventless fireplace can be installed virtually anywhere within a home.
Electric fireplaces offer the most affordable options for adding a fireplace to a home. Like ventless gas fireplaces, electric fireplaces don’t require a chimney or vent, so they can be placed nearly anywhere within a home.
