Open Fire Place
Open Fire Place
I really love an open fire place. I know it is not the most economical thing to have but it is just gives such a great atmosphere in the house. I used to live in the UK for a while, and I lived in a house that got an open fire place. In a cold day when gets dark so soon in the evening – we would go inside and get the open fire going. This is just the closest thing to sitting next to a fire outside. In my opinion – if you can afford it get it. I know it is not the most economical way of heating but it is worth it.
I remember the nights in which we sat near the open fire with a glass of wine. I can seat for hours just looking at the fire and the dancing flames…
Well this is what I got at the moment- a fire place with glass doors. What I acutely do is keep the doors open while the fire is burning strong and when the fire starts to fade – I close the doors to preserve the heat for the night. I do not keep the fire going through the night.
Fireplace Insert is just a metal wood stove that goes inside your fireplace hollow. A friend of mine got and he said that there easy to install and gives a better heating efficiency. What is really important is to check that the chimney is in good order before getting any fireplace insert.
You do not need a fire place for a wood stove but it is great idea to put it infront of the fire place while using the chimney. As I said above- it is really important is to check that the chimney is in good order.
Like dealing with any wood burning you need to be aware of the dangers of burning and dealing with wood.
And you need to be aware of air pollution control. As a general rule with more efficiency there is less air pollution.
