Are indoor/outdoor fireplaces a good way to heat your home?

Indoor outdoor fireplaces are an attractive way to provide supplemental warmth to your home, but are not meant to be used as the primary heating source. The indoor outdoor gas fireplaces built by Acucraft use two separate airflow systems to ensure a tall flame with less turbulence. The Combustion Air System will not use air from the home for combustion and instead supplies the fireplace with air from outside. The Heat Relief System pulls warmed air from around the firebox out into your space or can be vented outside.
