The Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a very harsh winter ahead – don’t get caught unprepared for evenings inside. We could even see the return of last winter’s “polar vortex.” With such brutal weather ahead, it’s natural to start looking for ways to keep warm. After all, some of the best memories or fall and winter are made around the fireplace. Whether you’re craving a cup of hot chocolate, a glass of wine, relaxing with the family, or just some quality “me time,” a warm fireplace provides an iconic and time-tested essential to any home.
There’s no reason to let the coming weather make your free time dreary and dull. We take pride in giving you a reason to enjoy the fall weather, not despise it. Instead of dreading the outside during the following months, why not give yourself a beautiful fireplace by which to warm yourself when you decide to head inside from raking or shoveling?
If you’re particularly energy conscious and like to turn off the heat when it’s not needed, a fireplace can be a much more efficient means of keeping yourself warm since it creates warmth in a particular room rather than expending energy to heat your entire house. Fireplace inserts are actually one of the most efficient ways to heat your living space, because they help to channel the fire’s heat into your home instead of up and out of the chimney.
There’s nothing quite as nostalgic as a traditional wood-burning fireplace, but if you’re not a fan of the extra work involved with them, no worries! Whether you’re venturing for a contemporary stainless-steel look, a rustic corner pellet stove, traditional custom masonry beauty, or natural gas instead of wood, look no further. Operation is a cinch with wall thermostats or remote control options for keeping that perfect temperature while the weather starts to hit hard.
