Investing in a new fireplace can be a great idea as long as it’s within your budget and it doesn’t interfere with other renovations or expenses. If you plan to have the perfect Christmas holiday this winter, with your family, then owning a fireplace can help you create some of the most memorable experiences you can think of.
Buying a fireplace is, of course, not a cheap endeavor. You’ll find that many basic gas fireplace inserts Denver options cost more than $2,000, and that price will increase depending on how much it will cost to have it installed as well. Also, if you want an extended warranty period and/or better insurance to provide added coverage for your fireplace, that will cost even more.
Of course, as long as you do some research, you can find affordable and high quality fireplaces that are worth the money. But can you afford the time to have a fireplace installed before the holidays arrive?
The problem many times is that other, more pressing renovation projects will often take precedence. For instance, you might need to install a new HVAC system or increase the amount of insulation in your attic. The best thing to do in these cases is talk to your contractor and consider having them install the fireplace as an added service. That way, you can still squeeze in the project before you have to prepare for the upcoming holiday season.
