From the traditional gas log fireplaces to the modern freestanding wood fireplaces, there are many options for you to choose from to keep yourself warm and snug indoors amidst the freezing outdoor temperatures.

The best choice for you would depend upon your personal preference, the style of your home; traditional or upbeat, the amount of space available for heating and your budget.

Fireplace options can be divided into two types; wood-based heating options and gas-based heating options. Our team has compiled the top 5 options for fireplaces and heating systems which will help you weigh their pros and cos in order to help with your decision for choosing the right heating system for your home.

 

Wood-Based Heating Options

Freestanding Heaters

Freestanding heaters heat the home evenly using convective and radiant heat technology. The cost is a fraction of other heating utilities such as electricity.

These heaters are durable and last a lifetime. If you invest in an energy efficient wood heater you will be helping take care of the environment as it’ll release comparatively fewer pollutants compared to other wood heaters, however, some amount of pollutants are unavoidable.

Freestanding heaters come with different door finishes; plain or printed glass and choice of pedestal or decorative legs. Depending on the manufacturer, there can be many more installation options available too.

Wood heaters take up less space as compared to freestanding heaters as they are inserted inside the wall. You can upgrade your existing fireplace into a new, more efficient and aesthetically appealing wood burning insert. Based on the masonry size and your budget- you can choose both the look and feel of the heater as well as levels of energy efficiency and environmental friendliness.
