Ventless Fireplace

The Environmentaly Friendly Ventless Fireplace

Today's contemporary ventless fireplaces are becoming more popular than ever before. And with good reason to. They are extremely energy efficient and do not require any ventilation ductwork.

Are you the type of person who enjoys sitting with your loved ones around a fireplace but you get choked up from the smoke which pours out?

Have you ever wanted to turn on your fireplace, but realized that you first have to clean everything out, find some wood for the flames and crawl into your chimney to activate the flue?

Are you the type of person who loves the causal glow of a fireplace, but does not want to risk putting carbon dioxide from the smoke into the air around your home?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then perhaps you need to look into a relatively new type of fireplace – the ventless fireplace.

We all know that the fireplace in our homes is switched on so few times during the year that it becomes a real hassle each time we feel like turning it on. You have to clean out the inside of the fireplace, open the flue for the smoke to escape and scrounge around for the wood you will be burning.

However, with a ventless fireplace, there is no need for any of that prep work that was previously associated with most archaic fireplaces.

Thanks to its design and its fuel source, a ventless fireplace is completely clean burning and will not give you any troubles – even if you only use it once or twice every ten years.

All of these great benefits come from the fact that a ventless fireplace does not burn coal, gas, wood, or any other substance that may produce smoke. Of course, you can find a ventless gas fireplace, but I suggest you look in a different direction.

Instead, ventless fireplaces use a jellied alcohol which is perfectly clean burning and simply will not put out any smoke into your room or the atmosphere.

So, if you are looking for an environmentally friendly, no hassle solution to your old fireplace, perhaps a ventless fireplace is just what you need in your home.

Fireplace Screens

Fireplace Screen Idea: Buying a removable screen will allow you to shift the screen away from the fireplace opening so you get the real feel and warmth of the flames while sitting in front of the fireplace. Return the fire screen when the fireplace is just getting going and embers are popping.

Fireplace Screen Options

Fireplace Screen: Alternate to buying a fixed screen, one can look for an upgraded fire screen version which has sliding screens which move left and right built into the screen's perimeter frame. Advantage of this type of fireplace screen is that you get the protection from the flying embers when closed and full feel of a wood burning fireplace when the screens are open.

Electric Fireplace: Modern electric fireplaces models are now more long and narrow format, much like the HD and newest K4 TV LED screens? There are a number of buying decisions to be made when purchasing an electric fireplace.

If buying a wall-mounted fireplace, will you accept an electric fireplace installed "flush mounted directly to the wall". This means that the fireplace box will project from the wall. Depending on the fireplace model, this projection can be anywhere from 3-5 inches. You want to ask yourself, when you enter the proposed room, will you view the fireplace from the side? If so, you may find fire box venting and light leaks undesirable. Recess mounting into the wall is a more professional finished look and generally preferred but will involve greater remodel work to recess the firebox within the wall.

Fire Safety: Some clocks have just change with Spring forward ... Fall back. A good time to change your batteries in smoke dectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
