Beneficial Fireplace Features
Fireplaces are calming and relaxing, all vital components of a happy life, but fireplaces have very practical benefits too. First and foremost, fireplaces add value to your home. You can also cut your heating costs by using a fireplace to do zone heating in your home; leaving your central heating system at a lower temperature throughout the rest of the house. This allows you to heat just the room where you spend the most time. Get the biggest bang for your buck with a two-sided fireplace that heats two rooms that share a wall. During those nasty blizzards when the power goes out, you can still stay warm in front of your fireplace, and help keep the rest of the house at a more consistent temperature.
If you choose a wood fireplace, it is certainly more work, but you can reduce your energy costs even more, you will be less dependent on a utility company. By harvesting downed trees, you are reducing your carbon footprint and are more ecologically sound.
