Cold weather and chilled breeze, what else can describe winters? Cosy warm blankets, socks, hot chocolate, heaters, and caps.
Staying at home and enjoying the long nights is the best part of this season. What would be better than lying on a sofa and enjoying the heat of a fireplace?
If you don’t have one at your home yet and are thinking about installing one, then you have landed on the right page.
The fireside comes with warm comfort but with a responsibility to manage it. If you are thinking about getting a traditional one, this responsibility will be doubled to handle.
How? Let’s discuss both electric and traditional wood-burning and see which one you find the best.
The foremost benefit of an electric fireplace is that it’s easy to install. You need to unbox the newly bought one and plug it in. There is no need for contractors or house mason to fit it in the wall.
As we know, it doesn’t need any chimney or passage tube as it doesn’t produce smoke. Just placing it in the right place and switching it into a plug is enough for its installation.
On the other hand, installing a traditional fireside can cost you more because you have to build a chimney passage tube in your wall to release its smoke. An installation of the chimney is also required when installing a wooden one to exhaust its extra heat.
The wooden fireside needs yearly maintenance. The sanitation of the chimney and passage tube is included in it. Regular cleaning is also required as the fire makes the box dirty and hazy. Also, you’ll need to buy and chop woods to burn them into the firewood. Once the firewood is dried, it will take time to burn it again.
There is no need for maintenance in modern fireplaces because they produce fake fire and nothing gets dirty.
But there can be minor malfunctioning in the firewood that can be treated if you reset electric fireplace again. If still not, then you can take the help of professionals. Keep in mind that it doesn’t happen every time. Their long life depends on how you keep them safe.
As wood-burning fireplaces produce real fire, they have instant and long-lasting heat if you’re able to burn the woods properly. They create an aesthetic ambience with their crackling voice of the woods.
But you’ll have to be careful while burning the woods as it is not an easy task to ignite the fire in the house safely. Also, keep your kids away from it.
The modern fireside takes a bit to get warm after plugging in because it runs on electricity. But once it starts working, the warmth spreads in the room equally, making every corner warm. If you want to hear that crackling voice of burning wood, you can also buy one with the sound effect making it more natural.
Now you know the perks of both a traditional wooden and modern electric fireplace, you can compare them both and can decide which one is ideal for your house. In the end, we want that you face less trouble and more comfort while getting one at your home.
