These fireplaces come in numerous contemporary styles that suit your lifestyle accordingly. Gel fireplaces, a trendy inglenook adorning the markets, are perfect options for you and your family. This specially designed fireplace will impart a look of burning firewood, but thankfully you need not waste time and effort on finding and lighting firewood. Let me make you acquainted with the features and facts of this Gel Fireplaces.

1. Working Mechanism of a Gel Fireplace

A gel fireplace is especially crafted for those regions where the conventional hearths cannot be used. They use an eco friendly gel technology that burns a petty flame which, can be used inside as well as, outside without requiring an air-ventilated chimney.

If you already own a fireplace in your house, you may customize it to make it a gel fireplace. Here are a few tips to modify your traditional hearths into a gel inglenook.

- Close all the pre-existing ventilation pipelines
- You may re-design your conventional hearths using clay, ceramic, bricks, logs and many more materials.
- You will have to purchase an alcohol gel as the fuel.
- Set the fuel gel in canisters and strategically place them inside the inglenook.

2. Advantages

1. Gel fireplaces are easily portable.
2. These hearths do not require a vent or a chimney.
3. They are regarded as one of the safest heating places.
4. They are eco friendly and make use of a tidier technology. They do not produce any kind of smoke or ash.

3. Drawbacks

1. These hearths are smaller in size so they cannot be installed in large mansions.
2. The burning alcohol gel fuel discharges moisture in the air, thereby increasing the level of humidity inside the room. This may not be a problematic consequence during the arid winters but it increases microbial growth and causes problems during the autumn season.
3. The price of this gel fuel varies from one region to another.
4. Purchasing the alcohol gel is going to drain your budget as it is very costly.

4. Shopping for a Gel Fireplace

A Gel fireside involves the usage of an alcohol gel so; you need to assemble special equipments in order to construct this inglenook. If you plan to work on this project this weekend, you may start your shopping adventure, with a metal covering. You may require decorative logs, ceramic units and grating. A pine or a Mahogany log will fit this purpose. Also, buy some enamel for the polishing purposes. You may install fuel canisters or directly inject your fuel inside the tank. With all these materials assembled together, you will surely build up a warm and cozy fireplace!
