Electric fireplace or wood burning fireplace. Which is better ?


Source: The Good And Bad Of Electric Fireplaces
You are able to save money by using electric fireplaces because they are significantly cheaper and more efficient to run. As opposed to turning on the heat for the entire home, you only have to actively heat one area although this is the same case for traditional fireplaces. Still, using an electric fireplace eliminates the need for buying wood, starting and maintaining a flame, and cleaning/servicing a fireplace with a chimney. Moreover, you are able to use an electric fireplace for an extended period of time. Wood-burning stoves are limited by the supply of wood. Gas burning fireplaces don't have that restriction, but require costly installment and creation of gas-line access. A foundational benefit of electric fireplaces is not causing any harmful particle emissions, which are a major side-product of traditional fireplaces, and one of the causes of their degradation.
How To Care For An Electric Fireplace


electric-fireplace-luqhqtew4twq4g4srgxhyj11-3-0.jpg Given the clear advantages that electric fireplaces have over traditional fireplaces, even die-hard fireplace lovers can justify making the switch to electric. Still, it is important to be apprised of the precautions and maintenance requirements before committing to a purchase. The most likely "repair" will be to change out bulbs as they die, typically about every two years. Models with LED bulbs will likely never need replacement. If you have a fireplace with conventional bulbs, replacing them is simple and straightforward. It is done by unplugging the fireplace, allowing it to completely cool if it was in use, and then accessing the rear panel of the unit. The panel can be unscrewed easily with a screwdriver. With the back panel removed, you should look for the bulb housing. This may differ from model to model, so consult the user guide before continuing (making sure to note what type of bulb is required). When you have the replacement, remove the old, and replace it with the new bulb. Some fireplaces require halogen bulbs which should not be handled by hand as this could compromise the longevity and quality of the bulb, in which case you should wear gloves to handle the bulb. With the new bulb in, you can screw back the rear panela and use the fireplace normally.

Electric fireplaces contain fans that are instrumental in providing heat to the room. The fan, as well as the other components, are usually pre-lubricated. However, if the fan is halting or not moving smoothly, it may indicate that cleaning is required. As with any other maintenance, make sure the unit is turned off and unplugged. You can use your vacuum's brush and wand attachments to clean the fan. Begin by taking off the grate and lightly cleaning to remove dust and grime. When finished, you can retrace with the wand attachment to pick up any remaining dirt. Replace the grate when you're finished.

The exterior mantle requires nothing more than occasional dusting and wiping. You should avoid the use of harsh chemical sprays, and instead, opt for mild soapy water and a lint-free cloth. Cleaning the glass display and mantle will make a big difference in the appearance of the unit. Be sure to dry the unit completely to avoid streaks and water marks.

How do I clean the inside of the glass of the fireplace?


Crumple up newspaper, use it like a rag, scrubbing the glass. Not abrasive enough to scratch the glass but enough to clean soot deposits.

Vermont casting fireplace vcef33


You could take a table lamp or a drop light a electric drill or anything similar,and see if you can unplug the insert and plug one of these items in and see if the plug works
I am taking for granted that you can get to the plug without having to pull the insert out or at least not all the way out
If you can't do that
Turn the breaker off to that circuit pull the switch out and make sure nothing is touching
Hook a tester to the wires and then turn the breaker on and see
If you have power to that switch turn the switch off and on watch the meter and see if it does turn on and off
If you have power coming out of the switch.
and you can't reach the plug then you only option would be to pull the insert
As for a fuse there may be one but not look like what you are thinking a fuse will look like it is usually a temperature fuse that is shaped similar to a diode the symbol for it can be two ways
it could have what looks like a c laying on its side upright and also another c beside it on its side aiming down like a snake crawling. The other symbol looks like a rocket with no fins on its side with a with a what looks like a T laid sideways coming off one end

HOw do I clean the inside glass of my fireplace?


The decorative surround of your fireplace should easily be removed (if it is anything like mine) and you should then see a number of fixing screws which hold the glass in place.

Remove these and the glass will come out (take care not to let it fall).

Leaking smoke into loft


The outdoor fireplace should not have smoke in the loft. Have you tried cleaning the unit and making sure to remove any remnants of previous fires? The burning ashes could be causing the increase in smoke. I think that you should be able to find a solution that does not involve adding a liner, but I would try a thorough cleaning first.

Black soot on glass and black smoke comes out


Remove the burner and clean all holes ,typically at the end of the burner is a cheep sheet metal valve.This valve adjusts the air to gas mixture by rotating it to increase or decrease the combustible air intake.Air must be sucked into the burner as natural gas is injected into it, this makes for a clean flame,The flame should be blue with small yellow tips.If the flame is long and yellow and sooty increase the air intake on the burner valve.
