When we moved into our new house there was a long list of work that needed be done in terms of updating and remodeling, but nothing stood out more than that ugly pink fireplace dominating the middle of our living room.

Since that time there have been many more fireplace remodels in our neighborhood. You can spend anywhere from $100 to $20,000 updating your fireplace, so it is best to consider both your budget and your goals.

The wealthy were lucky enough to be able to choose any decorated designs that appealed to them.

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.
