Usually, the first question shoppers ask is: “What type of fireplace should I get?” Choosing a fireplace that’s best for your home is simple. Here’s a quick guide from the experts at Watson’s to start down the path to find a new fireplace.
Types of Fireplaces & Fireplace Stoves
Below is a list of fuel types to choose from. Read each option carefully to decide which option is best for your home.
Wood Burning Fireplace Stoves
Traditional wood fireplaces and pellet stoves require homeowners to store fuel around the house in case the wood burns quickly. Wood also has a high heat output when burning fire, perfect for colder homes or winter evenings. It is important to note that wood fireplaces need regular cleaning and maintenance every year.
Gas Fireplace/Freestanding Gas Stove
Gas fireplaces are known to be very efficient. However, gas fireplaces require fuel storage. They also need maintenance every year. Fortunately, gas fireplaces have vent and vent-free options to carry exhaust outdoors.
Electric Fireplace/Electric Stove Heaters
Electric fireplaces are the most user-friendly option. Since they are powered by electricity, they simulate flames instead of creating real flames. The great part about electric fireplaces is that they are incredibly versatile, so many come with a range of heating options. They also do not require an exhaust vent, flue or chimney.
Ethanol fireplaces are the most eco-friendly option for homeowners to heat their space. They are very home-friendly as they do not produce any smoke. No additional venting is required. However, they do require fuel storage.
Always be sure to verify your measurements before you pick up a new fireplace. Measure every side of your hearth, and then use the detailed dimensions to perfectly guide your size selection. Be sure to double-check your measurements, as not all hearths are perfectly rectangular.
Always review your home regulations or insurance policy before purchasing and installing a new fireplace. It may be best for wood and gas fireplaces to be installed by a certified professional. Hiring an electrician to install hardwired fireplaces and hearth outlets might be a great option as well. For recessed fireplace inserts, a licensed general contractor usually assists with the installation process.
