Pellet fireplace inserts use wood pellets or other types of pellets (corn based, soy based, etc.) as the fuel source. Pellet fireplace inserts come with fans or blowers that automatically circulate the heat. Pellet-Burning Hearth Appliances Pellet-burning hearth appliances are simpler to operate and more convenient than other wood-burning appliances. In fact, they are almost as easy to use as gas, oil or electric heaters. Pellet stoves and pellet inserts burn wood pellets or compressed wood. Pellet-burning hearth appliances are loaded with pellets through a hopper and the rate of burn is controlled by an electronic circuit board that is typically controlled by burn settings or a thermostat. Most pellet appliances have at least two burn settings and some new models use thermostats to control the fire.
Maintenance and Care Most of the time electric fireplaces are not as demanding as the traditional ones when it comes to maintenance. In fact, most of the time electric fireplaces only demand maintenance when it comes to keeping the screen at least dust free and ensuring the electricity outlet is functioning as it should be. Therefore, most of the time fireplaces demand a lot of caution when it comes to ensuring that the power supply to the fireplace does not lead to blowing up of a fuse. Actually, to be on the safe side it is highly advisable to consult your electrician on the power supply to your fireplace and let him or her ensure that the wiring of the fireplace is correct. This also means keeping all the flammable objects far from the fireplace and make sure anyone living under the same roof understands this caution.
A fireplace glass door is installed on a fireplace to keep the room warm longer when the flames die down. Whether a wood burning fireplace or a gas burning fireplace, heat radiated into the room escapes through the chimney. One does not notice this while the fire is burning brightly, because of the heat from the flames that radiates into the room. However, when the fire starts to die down, the hearth becomes cold quickly as the heat escapes through the fireplace opening. To stop this from happening, a fireplace glass doors blocks the opening, keeping the warm air from leaving the room. 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 dont 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.
4. Take Your Fireplace Candelabra Outside - Candelabra made for your fireplace are usually pretty sturdy. They are generally made out of wrought-iron or some other very durable material. This makes them ideal for use outside. Try using your fireplace candelabra as a centerpiece on your patio table. If you have a long picnic table, you can use a candelabrum that is designed for a smaller fireplace. How about using a couple candelabra to decorate either side of your front door, or back door? If you are worried about your candles blowing out from gusts of wind, you can use votive candles surrounded by glass, but your candelabra cannot have center pins for this to work.
