Different Heating Options for Stoves and Fireplaces

Your Colorado dream home features everything you’ve ever wanted: a gorgeous view of the mountains, plenty of living space, and those special touches that make the house uniquely yours. However, you can’t help but wishing it had a little extra heat. You imagine cozy book readings around a fire, a stylish focal point for your living room, and an easy way to lower your energy bill in the winter. At IHT Hot Tubs & Fireplaces, we have an amazing selection of heating options for stoves and fireplaces to make any room in your home warm, glowing, and elegant.  

Gas Heating Options for Stoves and Fireplaces

One of the most energy-efficient heating options for your home is gas. This clean burning fire allows you the pleasure of watching real flames dance about in a stunning hearth, heating your room without smoke or ashes. The “waste gases” escape through an outside vent rather than a chimney, while the system utilizes the room’s air circulation to efficiently heat your space. And, instead of regularly supplying it with logs, a gas fireplace uses incombustible logs that cover a gas vent, burning the flames behind the safety of a glass pane. You can choose to have a gas fireplace or a gas stove installed in your home, or even convert your existing wood burning hearth into a gas fireplace with an insert. 

Electric Heating Options for Your Home 

An electric fireplace looks quite similar to a gas or a wood-burning fireplace, but works very differently. An electric heating option doesn’t need any vents. It works by drawing in the cool surrounding air. Then it heats the air internally with a coil, and gently blows the warm air back into the room by use of a fan. They’re quick and simple to install — you simply set it up and plug it in. Choosing an electric hearth for your heating is a fantastic way to enjoy all the aesthetics of a beautiful fire, while saving energy and saving space in your home.  

Wood-Burning Heating Options for Your Family

When you think back on your childhood, do you have fond memories of making s’mores in your fireplace? That nostalgic smoky smell infiltrating your nose? Glowing warmth on your cheeks as you sit close while watching your favorite TV show or reading a book? A wood-burning fireplace provides the perfect background for comfort and making memories as a family. Decorate the hearth for holidays. Or, incorporate your home décor styling all year long utilizing the mantle. You even have the option for adding a wood-burning insert to your existing masonry fireplace to increase the heating efficiency. You can also install a wood stove for a space saving heating option.
