Increase Home Value by Adding a Fireplace or Insert

- Wednesday, August 17, 2011

If you are remodeling your home or building a new home, be sure to add a fireplace or fireplace insert. A working fireplace increases your home value, because it is considered a plus to home buyers.

Fireplaces and fireplace inserts can be fueled by natural gas, pellets, or wood and all these fuel sources have their advantages and disadvantages.

Pellets and wood are considered renewable energy sources and are economical. If you’re goal is to save on heating bills and to make your home more energy efficient, pellet or wood is the fuel of choice.

Gas is easier to use with less mess and effort. Gas is controlled with a switch or a remote control, so when you want a fire, you can have one with the flick of a switch. Gas is also easier, because there is no storing or fire wood or pellets.

Whichever fuel source you choose to run your fireplace or insert, one thing is certain; working fireplaces add atmosphere and ambiance to any home. New home buyers love the idea of a working hearth and they make your home more enticing. If you are remodeling for your own enjoyment, a room with a burning fire adds a whole new dimension to relaxation and entertaining.
