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.
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.
