Are you a homeowner thinking about adding a fireplace to your home, whether for additional heat in the colder weather or for added aesthetics and appeal to your home? Depending on your home heating system, an added fireplace may be an ideal investment for you. Fireplaces can add cost saving heat to your living space and can certainly save you money over time, both of which suggest that adding a fireplace may be well worth your investment.
When adding a fireplace to an already constructed home, there are a few important decisions you’ll need to make. For starters, do you want your fireplace to be wood burning or gas powered? A wood burning fireplace, as we all know, adds that extra bit of ambiance and appeal, whereas a gas-powered fireplace does not. A wood burning fireplace added to a home affords you a comfortable, relaxing and even romantic atmosphere. Though they require a good deal of work to maintain, they are every bit worth the investment, the time and the effort.
When installing a new wood burning fireplace, first and foremost, you must determine whether or not you have an already existing chimney. If you do, you can certainly add your fireplace to the existing chimney without any real concerns. Whether in your bedroom, your living room, your dining room or your kitchen, a wood burning fireplace is truly a welcomed addition to many and one that will enhance the warm temperatures in your home during the colder months and save you a good deal on energy and utility costs as well.

Start by determining where you want to begin your construction. Typically, homeowners choose a central location in their home because the heat can then spread outward from the center point of the room and keep surrounding rooms in your living space warm. Before installation is begun, your professional team will perform an inspection of your home to acquaint themselves with the layout and to ensure that your new fireplace can be installed safely.
