Fireplaces run on different types of energy sources. Appliances that use natural gas and propane are the most -energy efficient. These fireplaces are very comfortable and easy to use. Unlike the traditional ones, the gas fireplaces can be light up with a single push of a button. Keep in mind that some old appliances might need manual lighting. If you want to update your gas fireplace, get a ceramic glass front that will help spread the heat into your home. Remove the dust from the fireplace blower in order to ensure an optimal amount of heat. Reduce the heat loss by insulating the vapour barrier and the drywell, when you install your appliance.
The wood – burning fireplaces are less efficient, but they are a still solid heating source. The key is to choose the right wood and to properly maintain the appliances. Ideally, you should pick a wood that was cut last year. In this way you can be sure that is completely dry and settled. Wood – burning fireplaces are perfect for the early wintery months, when you don’t need a primary heating source and you can cut sufficiently your energy costs.
