More than one gas fireplace is designed to hang from the wall like a painting. Can you believe that? You can warm the room with a stylish wall-hanging that has a real flame, and which doesn't require a vent. And along with the heat emanating from it, it will also emanate tranquility, style and beauty. Some also have what they call disappearing glass, which has an solid glass cover that turns transparent when you ignite the flame.
An electric fireplace runs on electricity, which is less expensive as compared to fuel and gas both. The heat is adjustable and can be set accordingly. This benefit was never available in traditional style as there was little control over how the fire looks. The fireplace is not heated up after usage, which reduces the chances of getting burnt accidentally. Especially with small children and pets, this is a significant advantage.
