Love having a fireplace? You aren’t alone! In fact, the National Association of Home Builders found that fireplaces are one of the top 3 features homebuyers want in their new home.
Fireplaces are beautiful and fun, providing a wonderful feeling to a home, especially in the cold winter months. Unfortunately, standard fireplaces let air escape—including heat. That’s the opposite of what you want in the winter!
Function and Style
There are some great features to fireplace inserts that make it even more desirable. For instance, turning the fireplace into a functional heat source means reducing your heat costs in the winter.
If you worry about it not looking authentic, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that it looks just as good as a standard fireplace, and sometimes better! An insert is designed to make your fireplace more efficient, and this makes for a great fire.
Plus, the inserts are designed to fit into your existing firebox and are crafted to look like a natural addition to your home.
Additionally, if you choose a gas, electric, or propane model, you can have a warm, comfortable fire at the push of a button!
It’s important to remember that an insert will require a professional installation. You don’t want to risk an improperly installed insert. A professional can make sure the ventilation is working properly and also install it to guarantee maximum efficiency.
If you want the comfort and convenience of your fireplace in a way that’s going to help your heating costs while looking great, a fireplace insert is worth looking into!
