Fireplaces are an element that gives warmth and elegance to the home. In cold times they are of great help to keep the space warm, in addition, they are a great support to spend time in the family around it, even to foment a romantic night with your couple.
The word home comes from the Latin word “focus” which means fire. Since the origins of Western culture, houses have always had a living flame, usually located in the center of the house. This relationship between fire and fire has been disappearing over time as the needs for light and heat have been met with safer and simpler solutions, but the fire still has a hypnotic and relaxing effect on people.
The fireplaces are increasingly an element of design and decoration, an object that invites to the meeting and comfort of those around it. Ideal for winter! which are the coldest months of the year.
Check out these proposals of ideal designs for any home.
1. Wood fireplaces
The classic ones of all life and those that we all know, this type of chimney are those that generate more heat and with a small one, you can get to heat a room completely. However, they also have some disadvantages that make them less attractive to the buyer, it is obligatory for the smoke to escape to the roof, it requires building work to be installed and it generates a large amount of waste, especially ashes.
2. Gas fireplaces
Gas appliances are similar to traditional firewood appliances, but their heat emission is through the gas. Whether you connect to the existing natural gas installation or to the one you choose. The advantage of this type of fireplace is that it starts heating immediately and then radiates throughout the room. You can find a variety of designs to suit the decoration that is inside the home, of various materials, sizes, and styles.

3. Bioethanol chimneys
An ethanol fireplace is an unvented fireplace that runs on clean-burning ethanol fuel. This fuel is alcohol-based, creates real flames, and produces no smoke, odor, or hazardous chemicals when burned. So ethanol fireplaces require no special ventilation or flue and can be installed almost anywhere. Bioethanol fuel is composed entirely of biological products.
4. Electric fireplaces
No more flames and no more heat, electric fireplaces are merely decorative elements and are imitations of a real one. The embers and flames reproduce the effect of fire created by an LED lighting system. The biggest advantage of these fireplaces over their competitors is that they are 100% safe. As they have no real fire; there are no fumes, no residues, no fuels, no maintenance, no cleaning. Moreover, as they are connected to the network, we can implement them in our home automation system and manage them from our cell phones.
