When I signed the contract on my house, they asked if I wanted a fireplace & I laughed in their face because I was moving from No VA to Florida. Two years later, I understood their ?. So, I bought 1 of the electric ones.

Yes. We converted our gas fireplace back to wood shortly after we moved in. I love the heat and ambience it gives.

No, but my parents have a fake-wood one that smells like poo. So there's that.

Used to, but we just switched to a gas insert.

Yes, but on those rare days I want to use it, it's usually a "Spare-The-Air" Day (meaning wood burning is prohibited).

Wood stove- cuts the heating bill in half in the winter

Thankfully, no. When we did have one, we used it only at Thanksgiving & Xmas and it was a pain in the ass to clean.

That's how my dad made it seem when we were growing up, but my current house doesn't.
I miss it. Don't realize how much till its gone

Yes, we use it daily in the winter. Saves a ton of money. It can be a lot of work but it's so worth it in my opinion.

Not my present apartment, but the house I grew up in has one.

Yes, but current it contains gas logs. It's been years since it's been in use.

Yep! Large fireplace with a 125 year old mantle and stone hearth that my mother and I built ourselves. I love it so much. Around Christmas, it looks beautiful.

We have a coal and wood stove. We burn coal. It's our major source of heat.

Two coal fireplaces. They are just for looks these days.

We replaced our 40 year old fireplace insert last year and love it even more than the old one. It's way more efficient and beautiful. Just had next year's wood delivered too.

Yes but it's a 100 year old building and no longer functional :o(

Don't think my decommissioned fireplace counts. It looks pretty.

Yes, but it's not for heat, it's just for ambience. Most people change them into gas fireplaces.

I wish. That's the one thing that's missing from this house that is preventing it from being perfect.

County ordinance forbids them. :(

Yep, but I'm not using it this year, don't want to burn the house down.

Yes but we cannot use it when the wind is blowing because the chimney isn't high enough. Not our fault. It was like that when we got here.

No. It didn't have a fireplace at all when we bought it, but shortly after our first four-day power outage, we put in a direct-vent propane fireplace for winter ambiance, and as a 36,000 BTU emergency heat source. It's better than wood in every way.

Yes. Not like I ever get to use it, but it is beautiful
