Lodovica Padovano Fireplace, 2018-02-05 00:56:42. The important thing to remember when refacing a fireplace is to understand your local code. Combustible materials such as wood mantels and paneling must be kept a certain distance from the firebox (generally 6 inches or more). The building code also limits how far these materials project from the face of the fireplace, how large the hearth extension must be, and so on. Codes vary around the country - it is important to evaluate your project relative to the codes enforced in your area.

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.

In direct contrast to the Georgian, Elizabethan and Jacobean periods, the Victorian era avoided sameness and had a richness that appealed to all. It was customary to decorate mantels with plush velvet pelmets; over-mantels had many shelves and brackets and sometimes the whole mantelpiece was backed with a mirror - plate glass became fashionable around this time. The late Victorians particularly loved Jacobean architecture, with its rich profusion of Renaissance and medieval motifs.

While you can build a campfire near your outdoor furniture, this can be messy and unruly at times, as anyone who has gone camping before can testify to. One option you have is buying a fire pit and loading up logs in that, however fire pits tend to waft heat in 360 degrees, and upwards. This is naturally not very advantageous if you want to provide some form of heat to your outdoor living room.

Gilda Napolitano Fireplace, 2018-02-08 01:30:49. Wood burning fireplaces are either listed as high efficiency, mid efficiency, and low efficiency. High efficiency units typically are meant to be burnt with the door closed and sealed. They have very low emissions which means that most of the fuel particulates are burnt and converted to flue gases. Mid efficiency fireplaces are designed more for the consumer that wants to enjoy viewing a larger fire and still maintain some of the efficiency features that wood burning offers. Typically, they can be burnt with the door open or closed and have a much larger firebox. Low efficiency units typically do not have a door that seals when the unit is burning and are strictly meant as an aesthetic addition to your home. While they do provide heat, most of the heat produced escapes up your chimney. This does however allow for a huge firebox and a great viewing area.
