Choosing a Type of Fireplace

August 28, 2018

A fireplace can be the trademark aspect within any house, especially with the endless varieties of fireplaces to choose from. Although, it is not always easy to decide which type of fireplace will work best within your property in terms of appearance as well as productivity. Thankfully for homeowners, modern fireplaces offer a variety of options to choose from, each of which provides its own set of positives.  

Fireplace Options

Deciding what type of fireplace to buy can be a stressful situation. Anderson Fireplaces tries to lessen the pressure of choosing by offering a variety of options to pick from when deciding on what type of fireplace works best for your home. Choices include the following:

Electric Fireplace:

For those who wish to have a fireplace but gas and wood burning fireplaces are not an option, electric fireplaces are the perfect solution. These fireplaces are extremely modern as they possess a variety of features such as background lighting, flame speed, and heat. Some fireplaces, such as the Modern Flames’ line of fireplaces offered at Anderson Fireplace, even include features such as color changing flames.

Gas Fireplace:

Direct vent fireplaces are another popular option for those considering a new fireplace. These types of fireplaces have two common attributes: a double walled vent system that both allows air intake and exhaust at the same time as well as a sealed glass front which always remains closed. The exhaust is the inner part of the vent that sits inside a larger vent pipe which draws in fresh air from the outside causing the fireplace to radiate heat that is produced back into the room rather than lost through the flue pipe. This is one of the reasons why they are the most common type of fireplaces on the market today.

Wood-Burning Fireplace:

Looking for the joys of burning wood without the expense of building and maintaining a masonry chimney? Look no further than a wood burning fireplace. These types of fireplaces feature a metal chimney runs vertically through the wooden chase.
