There are so many great heaters to choose from. But where do you start? First, think about what fuel type you want to use. If you have easy access to natural gas or propane, that should lead you down the right path. If you don't, try electric. There are more than enough options in each category, so you'll have no issue finding the heater to best fit your space.
If the heater on an electric fireplace is at the bottom is this dangerous and hot for pets?
Most electric fireplaces have heating elements that distribute heat out of the top of the unit, aided by a fan. If an electric stove has a heater at the bottom, this could indeed be hazardous for a pet or child.
