In the Philippines, there are only two types of weather conditions. Rainy season is considered as the cold season in the country. But rainy weather does not require every home to have a fireplace mantel. For countries which require fireplaces in their homes, consider setting up an eco-friendly fireplace.
- Use electric fireplaces especially if you live in small condos or apartments. It does not require gas line or chimney and can easily be moved from one room to another.
- The Gel fuel fireplaces is another good option. The gel fuel is alcohol based and is designed to be smoke and fume free.
- The Pellet Stoves may not look very appealing compare with the electric and gel fuel fireplaces. It utilizes recycled sawdust, recycled paper or any organic materials as “pellets”.
More and more eco-friendly home heating options are being made to reduce or somehow help in the environmental condition of our planet.
