Benefits of Adding a Fireplace to Your Home
Once you’ve experienced the cozy, inviting warmth and enjoyed the relaxation and beauty of sitting around a fireplace, you will want to add a fireplace to your home. You could go with the traditional and timeless features of the wood-burning hearth. Or opt for a more modern look with an electric or gas fireplace. Let’s take a good look at a few of the benefits of adding a Kozy Heat fireplace to your home.
Energy Efficient and Environmentally Friendly
Especially during the times we live in, many homeowners are on the lookout for energy-efficient heating solutions that will also keep heating costs low. Whether you choose wood, gas, or electricity to fuel your fireplace, they will all heat your home at an affordable price. Also, these sources are more environmentally friendly than a furnace because they produce low emissions. Today’s newest models of electric and gas fireplaces are designed specifically with the environment in mind. Another factor to keep in mind is that while gas and wood-burning stoves need a chimney, an electric fireplace does not. That is a great option to have for homeowners who may not have a chimney. Regardless, all of these sources will save you money by providing plenty of heat during the fall and winter months and give your heating system a rest.
Beauty, Comfort, and Atmosphere All In One
No matter the time of year, a fireplace adds beauty to your living space. It creates a cozy and relaxing atmosphere that people can’t help but gravitate toward. Even animals can’t stay away from the warmth generated by an inviting fireplace. Why take a look at Winter, the Cat curled up by the fireplace. She absolutely can’t resist a good fire! Just watch that fur Winter, and make sure it doesn’t get singed!
But seriously, whether in the living room, dining room, family room, or even a bedroom, a fireplace creates a natural and inviting area to decorate for any season and entertain your family and friends. The inspiring warmth that a fireplace provides drives cold drafts away and leaves you comfortable as you spend time with the ones you love. A fireplace also increases the value of your home. And should you ever choose to sell your residence, the added benefit of a fireplace is an attractive selling feature.
Safe and Easy to Install
With proper maintenance, a wood fireplace is a great option. Electric and gas fireplaces both have production-related safety regulations. They require very little maintenance to keep them in safe working order. Gas or electric fireplaces are also very easy to install in almost any home.
