Types of Fuel
Before committing to a style or type of fire appliance, it’s important to choose the fuel type that works best for you. The fuel type you choose will continue to be your fuel source for the life of your system unless you decide to change it. Choose wisely, because your fuel may determine efficiency, carbon footprint, and ease of use.
- Gas Fires – Growing in popularity, the gas fire is quite common among homeowners. Gas fireplaces can be installed anywhere, with very little space. Some can even be installed in places with no ventilation. Gas fires burn with most efficiently and is also the most convenience. A gas fireplace often has a remote control, instant ignition, precise temperature control, and emergency shut off.
- Pellet Fires – With the convenience of a gas appliance, but pellet fires come with beautiful, natural flame of wood. Pellet stove is the best of both worlds. These units feature a hopper which feeds the fire at a steady rate keeping a consistent temperature. They also have an instant ignition with a burner at the base of the firebox. Pellets are eco-friendly, as they are made from recycled wood waste, to burn cleanly and affordably.
- Wood Fires – Wood fires produce the most heat, can be fueled by specific types of wood that you may prefer and can be fueled by a supply of wood that you have on hand. They create the most beautiful flame, with the look, sound, and feel that every homeowner wants. Wood creates creosote as it burns, however, more than pellets, and will require more maintenance to maintain safety and efficiency.
