On a cold winter’s night, there is nothing better than cozying up by a warm fire. Hometown Hearth is here to make the cold, harsh winter more bearable for you and your family by installing a wood fireplace. Wood fireplaces differ from gas and electric fireplaces because they have a firebox, flue, and a chimney. Wood fireplaces are the perfect choice for those who want to build a fire in the comfort of their own home.
Besides the benefit of a heated home or office, wood fireplaces have numerous advantages that will be further discussed below. Wood fireplaces also add design and style to whatever room they are in.
Since wood fireplaces heat your home or office with wooden logs, it can help decrease your energy bill since electricity is not used. Instead, wood logs are burned in the fireplace and produce heat. Central heating systems are very expensive, especially in the winter, but with a wood fireplace, this cost can be offset. The wood itself is also cheap, if not free. You can find wood at the store or in your backyard. Even the highest-quality woods, such as kiln-dried wood, cost significantly less than natural gas.
Power outages are not uncommon, especially in the cold, winter months. You do not want to worry about your house or office becoming freezing if a power outage were to occur, but with a wood fireplace, you will not need to worry about this. You can enjoy a warm fire without using gas or electricity. Make sure to have enough wood stored during the winter months so if the power ever does go out, you will still have a heated home! This benefit alone is a huge reason why many people chose to install a wood fireplace in their home or office.
If you are considering selling your home, a wood fireplace can help boost its market value. One study found that a home’s value increased by over $1,000 just because it had a wood fireplace. This could help you receive more money for your home and possibly even sell it faster!
