When is the Best Time of Year to Install a Fireplace?

Summer is right around the corner. It’s the perfect time to start planning summer getaways, hosting picnics and installing a new fireplace. Yes, we said install a new fireplace! We know, summer and fireplaces aren’t usually two words that go hand in hand. But hear us out! Summer is actually the perfect time to add a new gas, electric or wood-burning fireplace or upgrade your existing one. Still don’t believe us? We’ll give you a few reasons why summer is the best time of year to install a fireplace.


Appointment Availability

Who wants to sit shivering in their living room while they wait for a new fireplace to be installed? Not us! Don’t wait until that first chilly night to decide to install a fireplace or upgrade your existing one. 

Fireplace installers will be in high demand come autumn and appointments can be difficult to secure. There’s nothing more frustrating than when you can’t get an appointment for several weeks. You need that warm, toasty Kozy Heat fireplace now! 

When you install a new fireplace during the summer, installers have more flexibility in their schedule. Your fireplace will already be installed and primed for use when others first start thinking about even making the call. Get ahead of the game and be ready for the start of the next winter season. 


Ease of Installation

No two fireplace installations are the same. It’s a complex process that sometimes requires adjusting the game plan. By installing your new fireplace during the summer, installers have the flexibility to modify plans without worrying about cooler days rushing the job. 

Quite frankly, harsh winter weather can slow down installation. Summer offers the perfect conditions to get your fireplace installed without weather related setbacks. 


Availability of Products

It’s the age old story of supply and demand. Everyone and their brother is on the hunt for a new fireplace when the temperature begins to drop. Once this happens, the supply of fireplaces begins to fly out of warehouses. In these situations you could wind up on a waiting list for when backordered products become available. Either that or you may feel forced to choose a different option for the sake of getting it sooner. 

But what about July? The days are warmer and everyone else’s minds are on vacations and enjoying the warm weather. Nobody is thinking about fireplaces—except for you. When you order and install a new fireplace during the summer months, the products you want will be in stock. As summer turns to autumn, everyone else will be scrambling to get the fireplace they want installed. But not you. You’ll be warm and cozy in front of your fireplace because you planned ahead!
