A corner fireplace door is somewhat smaller than an ordinary fireplace door. They usually come in the traditional accordion-type frame because of the limited space offered by the walls. In choosing a fireplace door from the rack, the purchaser has to ensure that the door is big enough to cover the widest area of the fireplace opening without covering the whole mantle design. The door should overlap the whole fireplace opening in order to serve its purpose, but should not keep the fireplace itself from being seen and admired.
Wood burning stoves are cost-effective. Unlike other home heating technologies that cost a fortune to purchase and maintain, wood stoves let you pleasantly heat your home without adding to your monthly expenditure. The price of wood stoves can't compare with even the cheapest electric and gas heating system in town. The price of wood fuel is almost 10% lower than the price of oil, electricity, and gas.
Wood fuel is proven beyond any reasonable doubt to be carbon neutral. Unlike the common belief amongst peers, wood burning doesn't increase atmospheric carbon dioxide levels. Though wood logs will obviously emit carbon dioxide while burning, the carbon discharged will be counterbalanced by the growing trees. This is a fact since trees absorb carbon dioxide and emit pure oxygen which aids minimize the levels of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere.
Electric fireplaces offer several significant advantages over the other types: These electric units are easy to install. They do not require a chimney and therefore can be installed in various rooms even if they don't support wood-burning ventilation. They are light weight and easy to move and so can be used in different rooms as required.
