Modern fireplace is known for its energy-efficiency. They use a recyclable and environmental-friendly fuel usually from wood scraps compressed using pressure and biomass gasses. They burn clean also therefore helping in the improvement of the quality of air. They produce less volume of ash decreasing the amount of waste. In addition, they can be operated easily by pressing a button or the thermostat, a device used for controlling and regulating the temperature of a system. Moreover, this model occupies less space compared to other fireplace technologies. It also uses ventilation which is less expensive than that of the chimneys.
The modern gas fireplaces is truly a beautiful thing, the ultimate marriage of efficient functionality and elegant beauty. They are not like the old gas fireplaces, with their meek blue flames and their obscured tempered glass door panels that trapped in what little heat there was. These contemporary fireplaces feature real-looking yellow and orange flames curling around real-looking ceramic "logs," which are very visible through newer-style ceramic glass door panels, which also let the heat pass through to the rest of the room or outdoor space. A newer model gas fireplace has more cool accessories than the old gas fireplaces - child safety screens and pull screens, storage cabinets, mantles and display shelves, ornamental ceramic logs, overlay doors and louvers, decorative panels and all-purpose grills. They can be made of anything from cast iron or stainless steel to molded cement, or even bronze, with ceramic, stone or copper garnishes.
