Types of Living Room Fireplace

There are several types of fireplace and various indications for each type of environment. Although beautiful and cozy, they all have advantages and disadvantages that must be taken into account when choosing the right type and model for your room. They are:

Fireplace : the most common and certainly the one most people fall in love with and remember when we talk about the fireplace. They are usually embedded in the wall and made of masonry (the finish can vary in bricks, stones and even marble), or iron, which has a more rustic look by keeping its original dark color. It is indicated for houses, because it needs a chimney to release the smoke, not being indicated for who lives in apartments.

Of this type, besides populating the dreams of almost all fire-worshipers with their natural flame and the wood chips being burned, it is worth remembering that a space in the separate environment only to put wood and facilitate the replacement of the wood in the fire. A disadvantage is that the fire can be a bit tricky to ignite and for those who have no practice, it can take some time. Another point that needs to be taken into consideration is the constant maintenance of not only the flame while it is lit but also the cleaning when it is off.

On safety, it is imperative to care for children and pets when the flame is on!

Electric fireplace : A synonym for practicality and safety in the matter of fireplaces, after all, with a push of a button the flames (in 3D, imitating the real flames) are lit and the heat begins to fill the space. Ideal for those who have children and for those who need an easy maintenance, because the absence of flames and firewood does not create smoke or soot, so it also does not need a chimney.

The advantages are still the easy installation, without the need for a big break in the house and the modernity of its design (for the more conservative, many models even imitate the appearance of the wood burning fireplace!). In the disadvantages, the energy consumption, depending on the use and the power of the heating, can generate a good discharge in the accounts.

Gas fireplace : A heating option without the use of firewood, but with a live flame very close to that generated by the wood burning fireplace. A gas fireplace is another option for those who need a quick maintenance for apartments or houses. It still needs to be built into the wall and attached to a gas point (which can be either a kitchen can or a piped natural gas), so it can cause a slight overhaul inside the house, even if it does not require a chimney.

In the case of gas flames, they may have bluish colors (such as stove flames) because it is a burning of fuel. It also has an easy ligament, but you have to be alert to children and animals by the flames.

Ecological fireplace : this fireplace receives the ecological name because it works through alcohol or ethanol, renewable and less polluting fuels. A mix between the advantages of the wood burning fireplace, the electric fireplace and the gas fireplace, this one has real flames coming from the burning of the fuel, but dispenses firewood and, as a result, does not produce smoke and soot, making cleaning easier. In addition, it also does not have the disadvantage of large consumption of electricity and does not need much to be installed indoors. It is currently gaining more popularity among the different types of fireplace.

The flame, like the gas fireplace, may have bluish parts from burning fuel.

In addition to these traditional types, there are still other types of fireplace, such as virtual or digital fireplaces that produce a 3D flame and may be able to heat the environment (but perform much less than the fireplaces above).
