Portable fireplace retailer Ventless Gel Fireplace has seen growing customer demand for safer, cleaner alternatives to traditional wood-burning fireplaces. For the holiday season, Ventless Gel Fireplace presents customers with a new line of contemporary fireplaces that burn clean without any harmful emissions.
Owner Jessica Brylan is pleased to provide customers with a solution to overcome common issues experienced with wood-burning fireplaces. Most of Brylan’s customers are frustrated not only by the inconvenience of maintaining a traditional fireplace but by the potential danger of pollutants emitted into an enclosed indoor environment as byproducts of wood smoke.
According to Brylan, “A recent trend we have seen lately is that more and more customers are opting not to use built-in wood-burning fireplaces in their homes. Instead, we have customers asking for safer alternatives that are easier to use at home, without the need to hire a professional chimneysweep.”
Brylan continues, “Most customers are pleased to find that our contemporary fireplaces are entirely portable. They are lightweight enough so that they can be moved from room to room, but they’ll still provide the same ambience as a crackling fire in a fireplace. Even better, many are organically made and burn clean without messy soot or harmful emissions.”
They specifically recommend contemporary gel fireplaces for families with small children. According to Environment and Human Health, Inc., wood smoke has been proven to interfere with normal lung development in both babies and small children. Young children are especially vulnerable to a number of respiratory complications, like pneumonia and bronchitis.
When adults or children are exposed to wood smoke byproducts, which may include formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and other irritating gases, it can negatively affect the immune system and damage delicate cells in the lining of the lungs. Common symptoms of toxic wood smoke exposure include headaches, coughs, and eye and throat irritation.
For Brylan, the choice is clear. He states, “I am particularly concerned about families with small children. There is no reason that infants and young kids should be exposed to this type of indoor air pollution, especially in an enclosed environment in cold weather.”
Ventless Gel Fireplaces offers both families and individuals a convenient, affordable solution to a traditional wood-burning fireplace. The Ventless line of contemporary fireplaces provides a wide selection of gel fireplaces with options in standalone units, wall-mounted units, and personal tabletop units.
Brylan points out that families are most likely to burn an indoor fire in the holiday season, often when entertaining guests. For this reason, Ventless Gel Fireplaces has refocused their contemporary line of liquid ethanol fireplaces for the holidays for use as safer and cleaner alternatives to wood-burning chimneys.
