I have seen many kinds of fireplaces and I tell you each have its pros and cons. Classical wood fireplaces have bizarre magic to relax the body and spirit. Some people love this old school fireplace, chopping wood is pleasure for them and they would not change it for any kind of newer and modern fireplace. On the other hand, for some people is wood chopping very unpleasant activity. Moreover, with wood fireplace you have to clean ashes pretty often. Maintenance works also do not belong to the most favourite activities among the people based on my experience. Furthermore, for a wood fireplace you will always need a chimney in order to vent combustion gases. In the case that you can not afford to have a chimney either by reason of living in a flat or finished house, you do not like maintenance works or you do not need wood chopping as your daily activity, I have one griffin for you. Its name is electric fireplace. Electric fireplace works on absolutely different basis than wood fireplace. You just plug in your fireplace and that’s it. And because you do not need wood to make your fire, no ashes are made once the fire is expired since the wood is the cause of the ashes. No wood also means no combustion gases. And no combustion gases means no need for a chimney. Isn’t it great? All you need is electricity supply and little remote control, very similar you have on your TV. Best electric fireplaces are pretty expensive but there are also quite cheap available. Many experts say that electric fireplace is also a best outdoor fireplace option. Just imagine, would not you like to make your own pizza on your patio with your friends or relatives? I think everybody would.
