We have an experienced team for the installation and customization of the fireplace. We also provide a fireplace in your desired color like a black marble fireplace, white marble fireplace, or some other color of your desire. There are various types of fireplaces; some most commonly used and bought are discussed below.
An open fireplace
It is the most widespread model of fireplace. But in terms of thermal efficiency, it is far from being the most efficient since it does not retain heat, and the fire, even well maintained, lasts only a few hours. The open fireplace is, therefore, a preferred solution if you especially want to bring to your interior a plus in terms of aesthetics and conviviality.
A fireplace with insert
The insert transforms your open fireplace into a closed hearth. Often made of cast iron or steel, the insert has a double wall allowing a current of air to circulate and diffuse the heat more widely in your interior. In return, your traditional fireplace thus equipped requires an additional blow as well as more frequent maintenance.
A closed fireplace
If you have a flue but no chimney yet, invest in a closed fireplace mantel stone. It is 5 to 7 times more efficient than a traditional open fireplace while bringing a real more decorative to the room.
An ethanol fireplace
Design, user-friendly, and easy to install, the ethanol fireplace is full of advantages but sometimes criticized for its lack of security. Its strong point? You can install it anywhere in your home and even, at the height of luxury, change it!
An electric fireplace
If your dream of a fireplace but don’t want to suffer the inconvenience? The electric fireplace is also an alternative. Like a radiator, it can occasionally heat small areas. It does not require any special installation and little maintenance. Another advantage is that it offers a wide range of decorative styles. These models have the same appearance as a traditional fireplace mantel stone and are therefore similar to a decorative radiator. Simply connected to the mains, they are easy to use and install and, of course, do not present any fire risk. Their heating power is comparable to that of a conventional electric heater.
There are two types of stove, requiring or not a duct, with pellets or wood. If we imagine a basic heating system, it is not, and now the specialized brands offer a wide choice of modern models.
Particularly aesthetic, they can be installed anywhere because they do not require a conduit. In fact, all shapes and designs are possible. However, these models do not have the slightest impact on your heating and therefore do not qualify for the tax credit. Their fuel emits no odor or dirt but is more expensive than wood.
Freed from the constraints of wood, these fireplaces are powered by town gas or refill bottles. Unlike the ethanol versions, these models are real heating instruments, comparable to gas stoves but with the appearance of a traditional fireplace. Clean and easy to install, they do not require any evacuation and therefore no sweeping.
