Again, you will also be fascinated by another modern fireplace which has a toughened surround glass that projects a "disappearing" effect. It has sleek and cool lines. Its steel bench hangs between the glass surround creating the illusion of dancing flames off the reflective glass screens. One more type is a cylindrical shaped "teal light" outdoor fireplace. It is a free standing portable type with a round stainless steel base encasing an ethanol burner. It can be operated by using the lid which puts out the flames when it is in the proper position. The uniqueness of this version is the elevated flame with its brilliant light above the steel base brought about by its raised up tempered glass surround.
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.
