It used to be that virtually every home in America, other than the south, would be built with a fireplace. As the times went on, and with the invention of central air, developers have stopped designing newer homes and apartments with fireplace features. This has resulted in the younger generations in America not experiencing day to day life with a fireplace. As newer home owners and renters have come into the market place, this generation has more design style choice. With the manufacturing of wall mounted fireplaces, the idea of have a fireplace has never been easier.
Many furnaces are also equipped with glass doors that are especially necessary when the fireplace is warming up and can not deal with smoke and thus lets the bitter smell in the room. The glass cover helps to prevent it. The doors can be swinging or lifting. By the way, furnaces with a fireproof door are safer than open grates, and allow you to manage the flow of warm air much better and easier. The only drawback is that sometimes the heat-proof glass may be covered with soot.
To assess practicality of the fireplace, we can judge it through its function. Its purpose is same as the classic wood fireplace and so is its function. It produces the same amount of heat as wood powered fire, eliminating the risk of flying sparks, smoke and other risks. These electric units generate no smoke and therefore don't require ventilation. There is no need of getting a chimney built or a duct system.
