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.
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.
