How do you know when it’s time to get a fireplace?

My cat’s name is Winter, but she hates being cold. How about you?

How do you know when it’s time to get a fireplace? I found out this morning. This is what I woke up to. She’s anything but subtle. I have a fireplace downstairs, but apparently it was her way of telling me it’s time to put a fireplace in my bedroom to keep her comfy this winter. You know cats, it’s all about her.

Later in the day I came back to her nesting in my blanket. OK, I get it, my bedroom is COLD. She could go downstairs. I have a great gas fireplace in my living room. It heats the whole downstairs. It’s toasty warm down there.

I hadn’t really thought about a fireplace in my upstairs bedroom. But there are some great options. So I guess it’s time to shop fireplaces and fortunately, I work for IHT, and they just happen to carry fireplaces.

If you need one too, I would start at IHT here.  Take a look at the models and get an idea what may work for your home. Then call or come in and one of the fireplace pros can help you narrow the field and find the perfect fireplace, stove or insert for your needs. IHT will help arrange the installation and get you warm in no time. That’s my next step, and I know my cat will appreciate it. YES, I’ll love it too!

So what do you have to wake up to before your get the warmth you need in your home?
