If you are looking to get a fireplace for your property however can not afford a real fireplace, the next best thing would be to get a gas fireplace… With a gas fireplace you can get a similar feel as a real fireplace with the gas flame that comes up with it, and it is a pretty red flame which can be quite hypnotic plus enjoyable all together. In my opinion it is much better than an electric fireplace because with an electric fireplace it is much more fancy than a gas fireplace; And also with an electric fireplace you can not get a flame. It is more or less just an overly large heating system that is shaped like plus resembles a fireplace. And to me I guess that is weak plus a real waste of time plus money to get one of those things! But with a gas fireplace you can get that for more than half the price of an electric fireplace plus it gives much more delight plus enjoyable feeling to your property in my humble plus most fair opinion on it all. I will never get rid of the gas fireplace I had purchased… The only way I might is if I happened to buy a property that is older plus has a real authentic fireplace in it, and having a gas fireplace is the next best thing to having a real authentic real fireplace. And that is the way I feel plus the opinion I will stick with no matter what anyone else has to say about the whole thing to me.
