With winter and the holidays right around the corner, it’s time to put the fireplace to good use. Whether you’re using a traditional gas fireplace or an outdoor fire pit, you may want to consider enhancing the warmth and appeal with the use of fire glass.
What Is Fire Glass?
Fire glass was introduced in the mid-2000s and has since become a home trend. Fire glass is made from small bits of tempered glass that has a crystal and ice-like appearance. Its use serves a functional and aesthetic purpose.
Fire glass was created as an alternative to ceramic gas logs. The glass increases heat radiation by up to 400%. The extra heat retention allows you to cut back on gas use, thereby conserving energy.
Aesthetically, the glass looks absolutely stunning when the fireplace is in use. Unlike ceramic gas logs, it does not kill the natural look of a flickering flame. It also obscures the appearance of gas jets. With the fire burning, the glass radiates a sparkly shine.
The glass also comes in various shapes and colors. Stick with a single style or mix and match to create a look that complements nicely with your fireplace or fire pit.
How to Use Fire Glass
Fire glass is easy to use. Just pour the glass evenly over the fireplace or stove and turn on the gas. The glass is environmentally safe and does not produce soot or ashes. It also lasts a lifetime and can tolerate extreme heat.

Of course, you need a fireplace or pit in order to make good use of fire glass. Contact All Points Heating & HORECO to have one installed in time for the holidays. This will greatly improve the home interior or enhance outdoor living if adding a patio fire pit. Top the fireplace or pit with fire glass, and you have a fire that is equally beautiful and functional.
