Modern Fireplace / July 19, 2018 / Leia Burnette.
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.
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.
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.
Choosing the right type of fireplace screen is very important. To do this, you need to consider the design of your fireplace. The screen should not appear out of place. It should match and should look like it is part of the whole thing. Also, you need to consider its size and shape. If you get to see the different pictures of fireplace screens, you will realize that the size and shape is very important. Also consider the material if you want to make sure that the screen is durable.
