Modern Fireplace / July 19, 2018 / Claire Bales.
Fireplace blowers help to heat your home by forcing the warm air from the fireplace around the room. This should help many people keep their heating costs down during the cold months. There are different styles of blowers available. Some are designed to be attached to your fireplace, while others are meant to sit in a doorway and blow the warm air throughout the home.
Like some contemporary fireplaces, the electric fireplace is also portable, meaning it can be move from one place to another. If you are cold in your room, you can transfer the fireplace in your room or in any desired place. It doesn't demand wide-ranging refashioning to be set up and use.
Aside from keeping the warm air from escaping, the doors act to keep the hearth clean just as a fireplace screen used to do in the olden days. With the doors closed, ashes and embers don't scatter about the room, keeping the carpet or rug clean and scorch-free. The doors also have built in devices that divert air towards the bottom of the fireplace. These vents make the fire burn brighter and easier to light.
It gets cold in the room, and it's really frustrating. I have a wood burning fireplace, and I'm probably one of the last people out there to have one. Many are switching over to gas due to the money it saves, and the positive effect on the environment as logs aren't being burned. I just bought my first fireplace blower and lit up my first fire last week. Man, does it ever make a difference! I can't believe I've gone all these years without one.
