Modern Fireplace / July 19, 2018 / Claire Bales.
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.
Many people love the warmth and beauty of a fireplace. With rising heating costs, homeowners are constantly looking for ways to reduce the cost of heating their home. This is especially prevalent in old large homes and farmhouses. One problem that homeowners noticed with their old fireplace was that it just did not heat the entire room or home. Fireplace blowers are a relatively inexpensive way to help reduce those costs.
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.
Not only does it keep me warmer in my home, but oil prices are on the way back up again. The economy is still tight, and every dollar saved adds up during times like these. I can lower the heat in my house and I'll save money on my heating bill as a result. Between the extra warmth and a few dollars saved, I have every reason to recommend looking into fireplace blowers.
