How to Select Size

The size of fireplace you use is up to how big a room or space you wish to heat. A smaller option will work well if you want to heat and improve the ambience of a single room. To heat a one bedroom, single story house, a medium size model will work perfectly for you. The largest sizes are for those with higher heat demands who want to heat a whole house.

Efficiency also plays a role on the size of fireplace that will work best for you. A more efficient fireplace uses less fuel to heat a given space. The tradeoff is the higher initial purchase fee; the savings are in the lower fuel charges in the long run!
