Learn the difference between types of Gas Fireplaces

Gas fireplaces are a great heat solution for your home. They’re efficient and effective and can replicate traditional wood-burning fireplaces in terms of aesthetics and can help to create the same elegant comfort for your space. If you decided on a gas fireplace, then you need to find out about the different types of gas fireplace.

Gas fireplaces are great because they’re easy. You don’t have to worry about piles of wood or buying wood or ashes, soot and regular cleaning. The only downside to gas fireplaces is that they don’t offer the same type of ambience that wood fireplaces do.

Some advantages of gas fireplaces include:

  • Continuous heating – there’s no stoking or refuelling with gas heating, you just switch them on and let them run
  • Low maintenance – no need to buy and store wood, nor do you need to clean up any ash and soot. Regular maintenance checks are recommended to make sure your heater is running efficiently
  • Easier installation – it is more affordable than a wood-burning fireplace and can be connected to your main gas line
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Child friendly
  • Energy saving

How to choose your contemporary fireplace for your home

A fireplace can add a touch of comfort and a lot of warmth to your home. These days there are a range of fireplace types and styles that can be easily fitted in to your home. Chazelles Fireplaces are the leaders in fireplace manufacturing around the world and we have a long and rich history within fireplace design and engineering.

There are four different types of fireplaces to choose from – wood-burning fireplaces, gas-burning fireplaces, ethanol-burning fireplaces and electric fireplaces. All are common, all are safe. It’s just important that you choose the right one for your home and lifestyle.

There are particular things to consider when choosing the perfect fireplace for your home, such as:

What type of fireplace you want – Out of the options above. If you’re having trouble deciding, a good first question to ask yourself is; will it be your main source of heat in the winter months? This will help to determine what type of fireplace you want because each type of fireplace is unique to itself.  For more information, you can read our other blog: How to shop for a fireplace online

Style preferences will also help you decide what type of fireplace you want and need. Based on your style and home, do you like modern fireplace designs or do you like more tradition designs? You can check out our gallery for inspiration (link). Or check out our blog This year’s most significant trends in fireplace design.

It’s important to make sure to make sure that your home, and the especially the space where the fireplace will sit, is properly situated and contained to ensure safety for your family, and allows you to enjoy it to its full potential.

Factors that will help you in determining your fireplace:

Emissions: Burning wood compared to burning ethanol or gas, and if you choose the former, ensuring that your house is properly equipped to handle.

Ventilation: when using wood, gas or coal as a fuel source, you need to make sure that your place is ventilated properly to ensure safety and comfort in your home.

Energy Cost: The cost, storage and availability of your fireplace will also need to be considered. Storing wood for a fireplace will require a clean and dry storage space. If you’re using gas, you may need to buy gas bottles and store them in a safe area, or you may be able to hook your heater up to the main gas line in your house which will save time and money. Ethanol fireplaces are the newest and most popular fireplaces because they it’s cheaper and renewable energy.
