Spring is finally here. Yeah! So now the fireplace season is winding down. But do not think that means that your fireplace must therefore go unused during the warmer months. Quite the opposite! Keeping your fireplace as the centerpiece of your home is easy. But first there is a little spring cleaning to be done, before we can get to the fun decorating. First order of business is to take care of that chimney. Cleaning your chimney thoroughly is one of the most important things you can do to keep your fireplace clean and safe. Make sure there is no creosote build-up in your chimney. If the creosote builds up, there is a chance that it will catch fire and since creosote burns at an extremely high temperature, it is a very dangerous and fast burning fire.
Corner electric fireplaces are a great solution for smaller spaces. In small apartments, every square inch counts. However, no matter how big or small the space, the corners of rooms can sometimes go unused. Corner models easily install into any open corner. With so many different sizes and styles, it is easy to find one that matches the current decor. These space-saving designs allow for the maximizing of floor space. However, if there happens to not be a corner available, there are also wall mount and petit foyer fireplaces that take up very little wall and floor space. Wall mount electric fireplaces are an excellent choice for small rooms, apartments or rooms where floor space isn`t available. In rental properties, wall mount fireplaces can be simply attached to the wall and plugged in. Inset models are also available for permanent installation and can be hardwired directly to the home`s electricity. Wall mounted electric fireplaces can be installed in bedrooms at the level to allow it to be viewed from one`s bed.
