5 Reasons to Add a Fireplace To Your Home


A fireplace can take any room in your home and add the extra something to it–not to mention how much warmer it can make your indoor space. As we start heading into the cooler months of the year, you may find yourself wondering if it is worthwhile to add a fireplace to your home.

If you ask us, we’d say it might be. Sadly, not every home is built to accommodate a fireplace and chimney. However, if yours is, and you want a fireplace, we are more than happy to help. There are plenty of reasons why getting a fireplace installation in St. Paul, MN is a great idea.

1. It can improve the appearance of a room

The addition of a fireplace to your home can give it an extra special something. Fireplaces can create a focal point for the room that makes decorating that much easier. What’s more, they make the room feel cozier without even being lit up.

2. It can help subsidize the heating of the home.

Sometimes, when everyone is in the living room for a movie, it may feel wasteful to heat the entire house. A fireplace can make it easy to heat that one room without a hassle.

What’s more, using a fireplace can help to reduce the amount of work your heater has to do in order to keep your home warm.

3. It can be highly environmentally-friendly

Fireplaces aren’t just wood-burning anymore. If you aren’t interested in chopping logs, you can opt for a gas-powered fireplace that utilizes natural gas to provide that steady fire. This is highly energy-efficient along with being more environmentally friendly too. If you already have a natural gas hookup for your home, the installation will be even more affordable too.

4. It can add value to your home.

Believe it or not, having a fireplace, whether it uses wood logs or gas, can add significant value to your home. That means you can enjoy your fireplace now and enjoy knowing it will bring the price tag on your home up should you ever decide to sell.

5. They are easy for a professional to install

Worried about the extensiveness of the installation? Don’t be. A fireplace installation certainly isn’t something that an amateur should do, nor should anyone try to DIY it. With a trained professional though, the job can be done right. We can assess the best place for your new fireplace and work with you through selecting your system to install it and making sure everything is working effectively and safely.
