Types of Heat Sources
One of the most important things to consider when purchasing a new fireplace is what type of heat source you prefer. Wood fireplaces are the most traditional and are intended for burning firewood. These fireplaces require ventilation to ensure safety in homes and must be cleaned frequently. Gas fireplaces burn either natural gas or propane and produce real flames without ashes. Vent-free models do not require a chimney and flue. To install a natural gas fireplace, you will need gas plumbing installed. Propane fireplaces run on replaceable tanks. Gel fireplaces burn a special gel material that does not create ashes or give off smoke. No ventilation or plumbing is necessary to install them, and the fireplaces produce real flames. You will need to refill the gel periodically. Electric. Electric fireplaces are very simple to install and require no plumbing or wood. These models use electricity from a standard wall outlet or hard-wired electrical system to produce a flame effect with lights. Most also have built-in heaters to warm your room.
