Electric modern fireplace generates more heat compared to others. It can be used to places where there are no ventilations or where there is no space for chimneys. No installation is needed so you can save money. Moreover, you don't need to buy wood or gas to keep it functioning.
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.
