ambiance and ENTERTAINMENT

Wood-burning fireplaces are iconic and add a lot of character to your living space, but they aren't particularly efficient or effective at heating your home.  Masonry-type fireplaces create ambiance in your home providing entertainment and comfort, but at the cost of low efficiency, and they are very difficult to keep clean.  Manufactured or prefabricated fireplaces are more efficient than masonry fireplaces, as they are designed to burn hotter and cleaner while using less fuel.  For heating a home, prefabricated fireplaces are the better option.
