Do you have an existing fireplace that you would like to revamp? Or maybe you would like to include a fireplace in your new home design but don’t know where to begin? Either way, knowing your different fireplace types, is key to choosing the perfect fireplace for your home, lifestyle and needs. The three types of fireplaces are based on the fuel used to keep you warm, including wood, gas and biofuel. Browse our wide range of fireplaces on our website or visit our showroom to explore your fireplace options.

When it comes to adding warmth and ambiance to your homes, fireplaces have long been a popular choice. Traditional wood-burning fireplaces hold a certain charm, however advancements in technology have introduced gas and biofuel fireplaces as attractive alternatives. Each type has its own unique features and benefits, catering to different preferences and lifestyles. Wood-burning fireplaces have a timeless appeal, offering the crackling sound and mesmerizing sight of real flames. They provide a rustic ambiance and a natural heat source. 

On the other hand, gas fireplaces offer convenience and ease of use. With a simple switch or remote control, you can ignite a gas fire and adjust the flame intensity to your liking. Gas fireplaces are also efficient, as they provide instant heat without the need for kindling or cleanup. For those seeking a greener alternative, biofuel fireplaces have gained popularity. These fireplaces use bioethanol, a renewable and environmentally friendly fuel derived from plant sources. Biofuel fireplaces do not require a chimney or gas line, making them highly versatile in terms of installation options. They produce real flames and generate a significant amount of heat, similar to wood-burning fireplaces, but without the smoke or ash.

The choice between wood, gas, and biofuel fireplaces ultimately depends on individual preferences, lifestyle, and environmental considerations. Allow our team to help you make the perfect choice for your home – call us.
