The modern design of linear fireplaces offers class and sleekness and a stark difference in appearance, as compared with traditional fireplaces. Enjoying a fire in your home can be more convenient than ever and the element of style can be a cut above, with a linear fireplace. Because of the convenience and versatility of these stunning appliances, it is possible to enjoy a linear fireplace in virtually every room of your home.
Much-loved traditional fireplaces will never go out of style. For homeowners with a modern or minimalistic style of décor, however, the look of a linear fireplace is often preferred. Forget about the bulky appearance of a boxy fireplace. With a linear fireplace, you can fit the warmth and beauty of a fire into your walls at just about any height. The look of a linear, direct-vent fireplace is ultra-modern, giving a wide view of flames that could be described as animated art.
The convenience of modern linear gas fireplaces is hardly comparable to a traditional wood-burning fireplace. Gas fireplaces don’t require building or tending a fire that may produce a lot of smoke. Instead of spending 10 to 15 minutes to get a fire going, you can start a linear fireplace with a remote control device or a push of a button. These tasteful fireplaces begin heating your room in a shorter amount of time than it takes to light a traditional fire.
Whereas logs are burned in a masonry fireplace and the combustion byproducts create flammable creosote in the chimney, which must be cleaned regularly, maintenance is far easier with a linear fireplace. An adjustable, predictable, steady fire is produced amidst a unique display, such as glass beads or ceramic logs. On occasion, inspection and cleaning of the firebox and venting are needed. The gas lines should be periodically checked, for signs of leaks. With those exceptions, you can enjoy maintenance-free heat from an elegant linear fireplace.
Fireplaces are traditionally located in dens, family rooms, and living rooms. The location in large rooms helps to accommodate construction of the chimney. Of course, many people have fireplaces in their bedrooms, as well, but not nearly as often. This is all quite different from today’s modern homes, which are usually built for both beauty and convenience. Linear fireplaces are the perfect match for contemporary homes, whether they run on liquid propane or natural gas. Many new homes have two or more linear fireplaces. In addition to being on display in dens and other prominent living areas, these elegant appliances are often installed in:
With multiple units, you may be able to cut off central heating and zone-heat in the areas where you are, as opposed to wasting energy by heating the entire home.
