Fireplace heaters use combustible materials to create heat, which then radiates from the fireplace. While traditional fireplaces burned logs, various fireplaces now use natural gas or wood pellets to generate heat. Traditional fireplaces are often masonry fireplaces built right into the wall. We simply add logs to the fireplace, light the logs with lighting fluid and close the glass or metal screen. A grate inside the fireplace holds the logs. An exterior mantle made from brick, marble, metal or stone will catch any falling cinders. These fireplaces are often designed with the home in mind.
Some fireplace heaters come prefabricated, often built using metal shells and a brick-lined firebox. These fireplaces install directly into wood walls. We will have more flexibility when installing these fireplaces because their insulation prevents the heat from the fireplace from starting fires with combustible materials. Pellet wood-burning stoves burn small pieces of wood, burning the wood more efficiently by using less wood to produce the fire and also releasing less harmful exhaust into the air. These wood stoves are made of either cast iron or brick-lined welded plate steel.
If we have conventional fireplace heaters, we can purchase an insert. These inserts install into cast-iron heat exchangers sealed with glass. These insert burn gas logs. They often have fans that move the air more efficiently. We might not like the heaviness of the insert, given that we must remove the insert every time we clean the fireplace. However, we can install a full relining collar, a stainless-steel pipe that connects to the insert and goes out the chimney. Meanwhile, gas fireplaces burn natural gas. We can choose among the direct-vent model, which uses two pipes to vent the exhaust, the top-vent model that sends the exhaust up through a conventional masonry chimney or the vent-free model that simply shuts off when the gas fireplace detects a dangerous amount of gas in the home.
