Gas burning fireplaces are typically available with either natural gas or liquid propane as their fuel source. The beauty of a gas fireplace is that there is virtually no maintenance required once your installation is complete. With the flick of a switch or the push of a button you can enjoy a beautiful fire. Gas fireplaces offer a huge variety of different facing, lighting, and control options. The design possibilities are endless. Possible drawbacks may be the availability of natural gas or propane in your area as well as limitations to the heat the unit provides.
Similarly, electric fireplaces offer ease of installation, ease of use, and a variety of design options. But also like gas fireplaces, electric fireplaces do not provide a real wood burning fire. Another question that needs to be asked is where in your home do you want to position your fireplace? The best placement is near an outside wall with ample room for framing of a chimney chase to house the unit and venting components. For installation in Canada, the chase would need to be insulated, vapour barriered, and drywalled in order to meet building code requirements. Each fireplace comes with an installation manual that details the framing and installation requirements. Typically, a fireplace installer would require that the chase be framed and prepped prior to the installation of the fireplace.
Shapes and sizes also vary for the rock material. They can be round and bulky or flat and thin as in the stone veneer type or rectangular shaped. You can also opt for the big round or wide rectangular shaped rocks or the smaller rocks depending on the design you want to achieve. What matters is you follow the existing building code in your area of residence to ensure your home‘s safety.
