Benefits of Installing a Fireplace in Your Home

There is nothing quite as nice as cuddling up around your fireplace with family and friends on a cold winter night; however, a fireplace is not only beneficial when it is cold out. There are a number of benefits offered by having a fireplace inside – and outside – of your home regardless of the temperature outside or the time of year it is.

If you are considering a home renovation or thinking about buying a house in the future, getting to know about some of the benefits of installing a fireplace can help you see why this is a must-have for your home.

Types of Fireplaces

Prior to getting into the benefits of a fireplace, it is a good idea to get to know the options you have. The best Kansas City fireplace stores should give you four basic options:

  • Gas fireplaces: These make great zone heaters and provide a nice return on investment. They also eliminate the need to cut and gather wood.
  • Wood fireplaces: With the crackle and smell of burning wood, and the aesthetic appeal, wood fireplaces are a timeless classic
  • Electric fireplaces: Utilizing only a wall outlet, these fireplaces are low maintenance, durable and affordable
  • Outdoor fireplaces: an outdoor wood fireplace will transform any exterior space, no matter the season

Wood burning stoves, while less common, are also a great option. They take up very little space, and give off an immense amount of heat.

Create a Cozy Warmth in Your Home

There is no other type of heat producing appliance that offers the type of warmth you receive from a fire. Regardless of if you choose an open hearth, a wood stove, or a fireplace insert, you can relax and unwind watching the fire dancing while it melts the cold away. Fireplaces also offer the perfect place to gather with friends and family members and enjoy the crackling flames.

A Source of Warmth if the Electricity Goes Out

When strong winter storms hit, it is common for the electricity to be knocked out. If you have a wood or gas fireplace, you can still remain warm and have a source of light. Without the fireplace, you may be huddled around a burning candle, which doesn’t offer much warmth or light while you wait for the power company to restore your lights.

An Eco-Friendly Source of Heat

Modern wood burning appliances are extremely efficient and produce enough heat to warm your entire home. This means you use fewer fossil fuels and you may even be able to distribute some of the heat created throughout the home by using your existing ductwork. Also, a wood burning fireplace has a zero carbon footprint.
