Gas fireplace inserts utilize natural gas or liquid propane as the fuel source and consist of a gas log set installed into a steel or cast iron stove and are usually sealed on the front with glass. Most gas inserts have fans or blowers that automatically circulate the heat. Gas inserts are available with remote controls, wall switches or wall-mounted thermostats. Wood-burning fireplace inserts use firewood as the fuel source. Wood inserts come with fans or blowers that automatically circulate the heat. Wood burning inserts would typically include an operable glass door in the front to allow for loading of firewood and flame viewing. Wood inserts vary in size of flame viewing area (the bigger the better) and maximum log length that can be inserted into the stove for burning.
Each type of gas log is available in many different gas log set styles including types of wood (oak, cedar, northern oak, etc.), flame size and color and other unique and interesting styles (camp fire, beach fire, glass, crystal, etc.). Gas fireplaces, gas stoves and gas inserts can all be used with remote controls, wall switches and wall mounted thermostats. Other options or accessories for fireplaces include a wide array of hearth rugs, custom glass doors, ash containers and buckets, wood holders, fire starters, flame enhancers, fireplace screens, tools and fireplace gloves. There are many accessories and options available for wood stoves as well. The most popular options include tool sets, hearth rugs, stove scents and steamers.
While these screens will not stop a rolling log they will protect areas outside the hearth from flying sparks from popping wood sap. One of the greatest advantages to mesh screens is that they require no extra space or braces and do not extend past the flush face of the fireplace. Another very common type of fireplace screen is made of iron, brass or steel and mounts in front of or on the hearth free-standing in front of the firebox. These fireplace screens can be a simple flat screen, might be free standing on leg-brackets and could be the more common three-sided screen. Three-sided screens have a center section that spans the width of the fireplace. The two sides are hinged to turn at a thirty to forty-five degree angle thus holding the screen plum straight up. The fireplace screen can have fireplace tools, candles and all manner of artistic décor built into the design.
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.
