What the heck is an Amish fireplace anyway? Glad you asked. They are basically a fancy space heater. The mantels are made from wood, and yes, indeed they are often made by Amish workers. Generally, the heaters are made overseas in China and other countries.

There are many advantages to an Amish fireplace. First of all, it can save you money by reducing your heating bills. How? By doing what is called “zone heating.” It’s when you heat the room you’re in and turn down the heat in the rest of the house.
