Unlike so many years ago, when homeowners would rely on their wood burning fireplace for the sole purpose of heating and cooking, today the appeal of fireplaces has changed and goes well beyond those once perceived necessities. Households are realizing the monetary value a fireplace adds to a home, along with the comfort, energy savings and aesthetics it provides. While wood burning fireplaces have traditional appeal, there’s no denying that the safety and health risks associated with one can be considerably dangerous to the well being of your family and home.
A Simple and Safe Alternative to Conventional Fireplaces
Fortunately, homeowners now have the flexibility to choose from several other fireplace variations, including gas and electric. These modern alternatives are an attractive option because they come without the mess and stress of a wood fire, while mimicking a realistic flame-like glow that is strikingly comparable to a wood burning fireplace.
Contrary to a traditional fireplace, there is no actual flame present, meaning you don’t need to worry about the presence of a chimney or the ventilation of a room. Homeowners will enjoy the peace of mind and all the benefits a wood fire offers without any of its negative drawbacks. If you’re looking for a practical and simple means to make your home a little cozier without breaking the bank, an electric fireplace will let you achieve just that and more. It is quite literally a modern spin on a classic favourite!
