A modern fireplace can be categorized as such because of the latest technology that facilitates its operation. A natural wood burning fireplace can be converted into a modern type ignited by natural gas, propane or electricity. There are also modern eco-friendly ventless fireplaces fueled by bio-ethanol which do not have any smoke emission. Bio-ethanol combustion produces heat together with a tiny amount of water vapor and steam. This method eliminates the need for a chimney or flue. Technologically advanced features and futuristic design make up a modern fireplace.
A fireplace needs no introduction to people who have experienced cold weather. However, not everyone manages to go beyond the traditional, smoky wood burning fireplace. It would be a great contribution towards the worlds' biggest problem of global warming to seek other options for a fireplace. Luckily, the electric fireplace was born eliminating all environmental hazards and providing the service of a traditional fireplace.
