Types Of Fireboxes
Almost every firebox model that you will find are ventless fireboxes, but you can purchase direct vent fireboxes and b vent fireplaces fireboxes. These ventless fireboxes are the most efficient of all venting styles when it comes to heating your home because they don’t lose any warm heat to the venting process. Before buying ventless fireboxes check up on your local building codes because these might be illegal to have in your area, although this is pretty uncommon.
Of those different venting styles you can use any option of fuel you want for your fireboxes.
Gas fireboxes use gas as their fuel source. These gas fireboxes can use propane or more commonly natural gas. These are very popular because of their low maintenance and ease of operation. Gas fireplaces fireboxes are a favorite among families because of the safety of the instant on / instant off feature of these gas fireboxes.
Wood fireboxes are basically wood burning fireplaces.

The downfalls to these though are that they can’t produce as much heat as gas or wood, are expensive to run and when the power goes out you won’t be using your electric fireboxes!
