Help, Please

Hi everyone:
My husband and I just purchased a new home in the Orlando area that comes with a fireplace and chimney already in place. We have no experience with any kind of fireplaces, let alone a wood burning one. He has no desire in using or maintaining a wood fireplace. My question becomes what is our options on putting in a different type of fireplace? Since we will use it very little due to the climate, should this also be a consideration as to what type we should put in? Thanks for any suggestions.

You could close the damper and decorate around it. Replacing a fireplace is somewhat expensive.

Down here I look at them as just a mess. it dont get that cold at all. Like said fill it in. There are electric logs that look like they are burning. You could put them in there . For now make sure the damper is closed tight. You dont say what you have for heat there Gas or electric you could go gas logs also
