Installing a new fireplace will add warmth and ambiance to a space and can even increase the resale value of your home. Some homeowners find buying a fireplace to be an overwhelming experience, but with the right tips, it can be a clear and straightforward process.
Determine the Fireplace Type
There are different fireplace options and some will be better for certain applications than others. Are you looking to install a new fireplace or upgrade an existing one? Do you need a fireplace insert or are you looking for a stove? Many of these questions can be answered by determining the purpose of the fireplace.
Installing a fireplace can be used for ambiance or decoration, serve as a secondary source of heat or backup heat during a power outage. Buying a fireplace can also help update the look of a room or even help reduce monthly heating bills. Once you know the purpose of the fireplace, you’ll be able to make an informed decision about the right product to install.
Wood, pellets, gas and electricity are different fuel sources and some types of fireplaces can accommodate different fuel sources. For example, you might know you want a fireplace insert, but there are gas inserts and wood-burning inserts. Stoves can either take wood or pellets. Electric fireplaces are a good option where traditional fireplaces aren’t allowed to be installed, in condos and apartments. Selecting the proper fuel source is just as important as choosing the right fireplace type.
Choose Fireplace Installer
It’s important to partner with an authorized fireplace dealer because they have the experience and expertise to help navigate all the fireplace choices. You’ll be able to compare brands right in the showroom and talk with sales representatives that can discuss advantages of different models.
