These days just as fifty years ago a minimum list of fireplace accessories includes only a few necessary items. Nothing new was invented in the last century. Today you will need a set consisting of a poker, a shovel for coal, also brooms and tongs. Add to this list a screen that helps to adjust the flame, a grate and log holders, and that's probably going to be all you have purchase for the fireplace.
Many people love the warmth and beauty of a fireplace. With rising heating costs, homeowners are constantly looking for ways to reduce the cost of heating their home. This is especially prevalent in old large homes and farmhouses. One problem that homeowners noticed with their old fireplace was that it just did not heat the entire room or home. Fireplace blowers are a relatively inexpensive way to help reduce those costs.
