Which fireplace should I choose: gas, electric or wood?
With colder weather expected over the upcoming months, a gas, electric or wood-burning fireplace becomes increasingly appealing to warm our home and create that autumnal, cosy feel. There is nothing better when the weather is grey and cold outside, than a bright fire flicking away and warming us up. Especially when we are inside reading a good book or watching our favourite TV show on the sofa and sipping on a warm drink.
Here at Burning Inspirations, we stock a wide range of gas, electric and wood fireplaces. If you are wondering which type of fireplace is right for you and your home, here’s our breakdown of advantages for gas, electric or wood to help you decide.
Benefits of a gas fireplace
Gas fires are stylish, easy to use and control, with the added benefit of having a real flame. As you do not need to purchase wood, or have a chimney in your home, these fireplaces offer greater flexibility and can be placed in any room of your choice.
- No wood or chimney needed
- Low maintenance and easy to clean
- Most realistic flame
Benefits of an electric fireplace
This is an increasingly popular option. Particularly amongst those who live in a newer, more modern house which has sufficient insulation and heating already, but would like to create that cosy atmosphere that only a fireplace brings.
- Easy to install
- Low cost and maintenance
- Variety of different designs
- Flame effect
Benefits of a wood fireplace
Nothing says the perfect autumn or winter evening quite like a fire roaring from a traditional wood-burning fireplace.
- Cleaner and more environmentally friendly
- Real flame creating unbeatable ambiance
- Guaranteed warmth and light during a power cut
