When you speak about fireplace, you imagine in your mind’s eye a fireplace wood slowly burning in the background, from where pleasant and luxuriant warmth is emanating. It is both beautiful and very efficient way to heat a room. Many fireplaces have been constructed upon what was before the place earmarked for the stove without which people could die of cold.

Today, Fireplace Wood Has Been Replaced With Gas And Other Material

It will be very rare that you will find today stoves that require fireplace wood to provide warmth for the room during winter. In the majority of places the fireplace wood has been replaced by modern fuel and machines such as central air conditioners and central heating systems which run on gas and other modern-day fuels. The fireplace wood belongs to the past, when the wood stoves were the only really heat efficient machines around.

The beauty of a quietly burning fireplace is not forgotten though. Hence, most of the modern fireplaces will have some contraptions or other which imitate the movement and feel of fire burning.  Though the heating comes from other sources, the romance of the fire burning in the background, has not yet been replaced.

There are houses that use wood-stoves though these are very rare occurrences. These houses have the fireplace burning with real fire. This is extremely attractive, though feeding the wood-stove requires a Herculean strength since once has to chop wood everyday (unless you have stock for the whole winter), wood that is most of the time totally frozen in the hostile winter weather. In other instances, the stove used gasoline, diesel and or kerosene to burn and provide the necessary warmth.

However, the modern day stoves have done away with all this. Today, one gets hot or cold air with a simple press of a button. The mantel places are usually maintained for their beauty and the majestic looks they give the house, rather than any really use.  In winter, when you expect the fireplace function and give you the required warmth, there are special light-plays installed inside the fireplace, which give the impression of a fire quietly burning.

There are also devices which make slight crackling noise just as a wood stove actually generate. People go to all these lengths to create the imitation of the wood stove because it really looks charming, and luxuriant.
