Why Your Home Needs a Fireplace—Today
- Posted on Dec 15, 2016
Traditional fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, gas fireplaces, freestanding stoves—the options are endless. No matter your preference, there are numerous reasons to install at least one in your home.
Fires are cozy. Imagine coming home at the end of a long day. Work has been stressful and the traffic was crazy. There’s snow everywhere and your coat isn’t cutting it. When you walk in the front door, there’s a nice, warm dinner on the table and your significant other is relaxing near a blazing fire. Sound perfect? While that’s more like a movie scene than reality, you can still thoroughly enjoy a fireplace. Put the kids to bed, curl up in your comfiest pajamas, and grab your favorite drink, then stare at the flames and wind down.
Fireplaces can increase the value of your home. Nearly everybody would love to come home to the scene described above and a fireplace gets you one step closer to that scene. For that, and the following others, fireplaces are a desirable piece for potential buyers.
Fires can provide heat, even when the power’s out. Whether you have frequent power outages or not, a fireplace is a good backup plan. What if the power goes out in the middle of winter? Having an alternative heat source that doesn’t require electricity could keep you warm, whether for a few hours or a few days.
You can cook on fires. Again, you never know when you’ll find yourself in an emergency situation. Along with providing heat, fireplaces give the option of hot food when other cooking appliances aren’t available.
A fireplace can cut energy costs. By using a fireplace, wood-burning stove, etc., to heat your home, you can save a lot of money. It also supplements your heater, requiring less electricity and gas. It can help in lowering your bill while still keeping your home toasty.
