Which Type of Fireplace is Right for You?

Today, there are more fireplace options to choose from than ever before. How do you select the one that’s right for you? We can help.

Below are some factors to consider.

Option 1: Gas Fireplaces

Gas fireplaces are safe and easy to use. They are energy efficient and require virtually no maintenance. Concerned about them not working during a power outage? No need. They will provide warmth during the most inclement weather, even conditions that knock out your power. More good news…Gas fireplaces are easy to install. Below are two of the gas fireplaces we carry at My Fireplace:

The Regency City Series: New York

This unit offers unlimited finishing options, an invisible glass safety barrier, and a modern linear look. It is the perfect size for any room.

The Hearthstone Bristol DX Direct Vent

The Bristol DX with panoramic three-sided viewing has innovation and efficiency built in. This unit looks like a traditional wood-burning stove and brings you direct-vent technology with the ProFlame electronic ignition system with split burner technology. The pilot is off when the stove isn't in use, resulting in considerable fuel savings, which is great for your wallet and the environment. Plus, with a battery backup, you'll be able to enjoy the warmth of the stove even when the weather leaves you without electricity.

Option 2: Electric Fireplaces

Electric fireplaces are also safe and cost effective. Because of the potential risks of both wood burning and gas fireplaces, insurance companies may give a discount if you choose an electric option. If you enjoy the appearance of a fire year-round but not the heat, an electric unit may be the right choice for you, as you can have flame without the heat. These units are also easy to install.

The Regency Skope Series

With unmatched realism and depth, this elegant linear electric fireplace stands apart from the rest. The styling options are endless with over 39 lighting combinations that provide three-dimensional viewing.

The Dimplex XLF Series

Visually stunning, these fireplaces capture the charm and ambiance of a real fire. At only 5-12” deep, with edge-to-edge glass, the XLF provides endless options for installation.

Option 3: Wood Burning Fireplaces

For some, nothing beats a wood-burning fireplace or stove. Enjoy the ever-changing appearance of natural flames, as well as the crackle of the burning logs and the scent that’s reminiscent of a campfire. Save money on heating costs during cold weather. Wood fireplaces are guaranteed to work even when there is a power outage.

The Hearthstone Bari

Not your Granny’s wood stove. The Bari has clean lines combined with an optional ability to rotate. These features make it a must for wood burning in the modern home.

The Renaissance Rumford

Add classic wood burning to your home with the Rumford, featuring a guillotine screen and glass door system.
