Today's fireplaces are used not only for the great look and feel of cosiness in home but they actually can be used for heating the entire home. There is a huge variety of fireplace designs nowadays varying in size and shape. Some of them are with open fire yet others are behind fireproof glass but all bringing warmth and comfort to the owner.
Many of today's fireplaces, whether wooden or gas, are certified for reduced emissions from combustion, design consistent with local body laws to reduce pollution and can control energy costs within the household. These certificates ensure that your modern fireplace is clean, efficient, with reduced energy costs and prevent pollution from the air we breathe. Even the modern wooden fire place can be considered a 'green' product due to the forests being well maintained and renewable natural energy source, which help to reduce emissions. Wood is a carbon neutral product as the trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. When the wood is burned, it produces the same amount of carbin dioxide that a gas fireplace uses over the lifespan of the product, making the tree carbon neutral.
