Once installed, a fireplace will occupy an important place in the house, so you need to keep this in mind when you start shopping for it. There are many reasons that can convince you to buy a fireplace:
- Enhancing the aspect of the room
- Heating the room
- Reducing monthly heating bills by up to 40%
Choose the type of fireplace
Many people may think they have to buy a new fireplace, when they actually need a new igniter. An igniter can be easily installed in the existing fireplace and offer many benefits: better heating, ambiance, improved air quality etc.
You will have to buy a new fireplace only if you have a new home or living space where there is no fireplace installed already. Direct ventilation technology makes it easy to add it to any room. Fireplaces are available in any style – modern, traditional, contemporary, classic etc. A well known fireplace store in Denver will be able to give you all the info you need to make an informed decision.
Choose a fireplace fuel
- Natural gas
Natural gas is the cleanest combustion fossil fuel. Choose natural gas if you prefer to have a clean, low-maintenance fireplace, with a thermostat that can be adjusted instantly by remote control.
Choose wood if you love the sound of burning logs, the dynamic atmosphere of a real fire, and you have a place to store all the pieces of wood that you need.
Electric fireplaces produce a nice ambiance, but they are not as effective as the other options.
Make the necessary measurements
When you buy a fireplace, you must consider the size of the space where you will install it. Also, take into account the style of the new fireplace in relation to the style of the room.
