Fireplaces Made Simple
A guide to choosing between a gas fireplace, wood fireplace, electric fireplace, or wood stove. What every homeowner should know up front.
Step One: Choose your fuel source
Like anything, there are advantages and disadvantages to choosing one fuel source over another. The most common fuel sources we deal with on a daily basis are gas (natural gas and propane), wood, and electric. Gas and electric fireplaces have the obvious advantage of being easy to operate, flip a switch or hit the button on the remote control and voila! you have fire. Wood is more work, but the end result is a fire that will crackle, pop, and fill the room with the nostalgic one of a kind aroma of a "real" fire.
Step Two: Heating concerns
Now that you have chosen a fuel source your salesperson will ask you if heat is a concern. If the answer is yes then hopefully you have not chosen an electric fireplace which will produce very little heat. Assuming you have chosen gas or wood, this is where things can get truly complicated so we will break them down one at a time:
A traditional "open face" wood burning fireplace produces very little heat and burns a lot of wood in a short amount of time. They will hold a large fire with big flames and are a great place to take the family Christmas photo. Masonry fireplaces can be built any size and are extremely expensive. Prefabricated fireplaces can be framed into a 2x4 wall and are available in many sizes at very reasonable prices.
If heat is a concern the first thing that usually comes to mind is a freestanding wood stove. Wood stoves have come a long way since our grandparents ugly steel cubes. Even small stoves now generally hold a fire overnight, produce very little pollution (much less than the open fireplace) and are available in an array of styles from rustic to contemporary.
If you want both the fireplace "look" (for that family Christmas picture) and the efficiency of a freestanding wood stove, there is an option for that as well. Generally referred to as "EPA fireplaces" because they meet the same EPA exemptions as wood stoves, this new breed of fireplace can be built into a framed wall just like a traditional prefabricated fireplace. The result is a beautiful fireplace that heats like a stove. This is a great option, however, it is also the most costly.
The most realistic gas appliances are vented gas logs. These units, like the traditional wood fireplace, have open faces, vent through the roof, and are extremely inefficient- sending all the heat along with plenty of expensive gas straight up the chimney. The result is a beautiful yellow flame with lots of glowing embers. Vented gas logs are often used in commercial applications such as restaurants due to their realistic appearance.
Vent free gas appliances are extremely efficient. As the name implies, they do not have to be vented to the outside. Instead, the byproducts of combustion are vented into the room giving this type of fireplace a 99.9% efficiency rating. They are also extremely versatile and easy to install, also making them the most inexpensive option. As with anything, there is a downside. There are limits on room size and usage, and warnings that they may aggravate people with severe allergies or respiratory issues. This is a good option for some, but make sure you do your homework.
If you want to vent the exhaust to the outside but keep the heat, consider a direct vent fireplace. They can be vented directly through an outside wall or through the roof utilizing a "pipe with a pipe" that serves as both an air intake and exhaust. This will allow you to keep up to 80% of the heat, heat up to 3000 square feet, but lose the other byproducts of combustion. Direct vents will have a sealed glass front and are the only types of fireplaces besides electric allowed in energy star or green homes.
Step Three: Finish Work
The fun part! Now it's time to choose your stone, marble, mantel, and any other decorative details your heart desires. There are no limits on how elaborate you can dress it up. Do pay close attention to the combustible clearances and hearth recommendations. Your local NFI certified sales person or installer can answer any questions you have regarding restrictions.

Hopefully you have an idea now which type of fireplace to continue your research on. Remember, there is a lot of bad information out there so get some ideas and then consult with a local NFI certified professional when making you decision. The fireplace is the heart of the home and many times the most overlooked detail in the home.
