For many years, masonry fireplaces (fireplaces primarily built from brick or stone) have been considered the go-to home hearth system.
But masonry fireplaces have their drawbacks: for one, they’re inefficient – in fact, according to the US Department of Energy, they can account for 8 percent of more of a home’s energy loss. They’re also expensive to install, costing an average of about $30,000 to build.
If you want a smarter way to enjoy an evening in front of a crackling fire – especially if you’re building a new home – here are two great options for you.
While similar in use to a masonry fireplace, newer vented gas fireplaces offer exciting firebox options and many offer interior lighting so you can join a warm ambient glow even when the fireplace is not in use.
