Heat n Glo sells wood, gas and electric fireplaces for indoor use. It also sells a selection of outdoor fireplaces. Not all common problems are applicable to all of its fireplaces. Pilot light outages do not occur with electric fireplaces, and neither electric nor wood-burning fireplaces are susceptible to natural gas odors.

The benefit of a wood-burning fireplace from Heat n Glo is its traditional appearance and smell, while the primary benefits of an electric fireplace are clean operation and convenience. Gas fireplaces offer a compromise between the two, with the ambiance of wood-burning fireplaces and the convenience of electric models.

Electric fireplaces are generally safer and less expensive to run than wood-burning or gas fireplaces, and they do not require extra hardware such as vent kits, gas lines or functioning chimneys. They are a less effective heat source than fireplaces that produce actual flames. Unlike gas or wood fireplaces, they cannot be used as an emergency heat source when electric power is unavailable.
