Many of us have the desire to use the fireplace throughout the whole year. Having that type of ambience and comfort during the winter is great – but to use it during the spring and summer would also be just as good. Except for the fact that the heat would literally undo us.
The best way to have all of the ambience without any of the heat is to use an electric ventless fireplace. This type of fireplace uses the design of any normal fireplace – but with an electric fireplace insert stuck inside of it. The inserts are designed to simulate the look of a traditional wood burning fireplace but without all of the heat.
There are two ways in which you are able to purchase these ventless fireplaces. The first is to purchase a simple electric insert that slips into your existing fireplace. The second is to purchase an electric ventless fireplace that has already been put together and is able to be placed in any room in your home.
These pre-made ventless fireplace will cost anywhere between $200 to $1,000 and are the ideal choice when you have a smaller home or do not have the time or money to build a fireplace into your home. They are efficient and use special lighting and mirrors to simulate the look of a real fire.
The most common material used to make them is wood. This is because it is relatively light and can easily be carried into any room in the home. Unlike the gas ventless fireplace you do not require it to be hooked up to a gas line that is in the home. All you have to do is place it near the standard electrical outlet and turn it on when you wish to use it.
Most of these types of fireplaces are small so that they can fit into any part in the home. Others are built to be multi functional and to serve as a fireplace as well as a bookcase or your entertainment center. These have small shelves built on either end and a large mantel that can hold your brand new plasma television.
