There is no doubt about it that Saskatchewan has some of the harshest winters out there. But there is a silver lining, and that is keeping cozy by the fire in the bitter cold months. RTM fireplaces are a nice perk of enduring yet another cold patch. There are no shortages of options to customize a fireplace with loads of options available. Three popular options for B&B Homes clients are traditional wood burning, gas and electric fireplaces.
Wood burning fireplaces are a traditional option that have been heating homes naturally for decades. These tried and true fireplace requires a little more upkeep than more modern gas and electric options and is not as efficient at producing heat. But if the scent and ambiance of the burning logs is what you are after, the additional work can considered a labour of love when maintaining your wood supply and cleaning your chimney seasonally.
Gas fireplaces are a stylish, modern option that provide flexible heat and aesthetic options by efficiently burning natural gas instead of wood. There are a number of options for gas logs that create the ambiance of your flame. Gas fireplaces are also enclosed, providing safety from embers without requiring any chimney maintenance. Gas fireplaces also provide an alternate heat source for the home.
Electric fireplaces allow you to have the visual of a fire without producing any actual heat allowing for use all year round. An environmentally conscious option, as electric fireplaces do not use any gas or produce any emissions.
