Working Fireplaces Increase Home Value

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 14, 2011

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

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

Many homeowners are interested in green heat, or alternative home heating solutions. So pellet and wood fireplace inserts are very desirable. Both pellets and wood are considered renewable energy sources and are economical. You will surely set your home apart when it comes time to sell by talking with potential buyers about the lower home heating bills and higher heating efficiency of your home.

Gas fireplace inserts are generally easier to use with less mess and effort. Controlled by a thermostat or remote control, gas fireplace inserts are convenient and beautiful.

But, whichever fuel source you choose to run your fireplace or fireplace insert, one thing is certain; working fireplaces add atmosphere and ambiance to any home. New home buyers love the idea of a working fireplace, they certainly make your home more enticing.

Bring Back The Warmth And Coziness This Winter

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, December 28, 2010
If you have been thinking why all this hype about a vented gas fireplace, then it is time that you read the following. A Fireplace in general brings back memories of one's grandparents' hearth that radiated warmth, love and not to forget the never ending supply of warm cookies and milk! Well that is a thought that most people relate to when talking about a conventional fireplace. They also think about the times when their grandparents had to struggle on days when the fireplace's chimney was clogged and when it had to be cleaned.

Well, thanks to the advancement in technology, now you can actually have a vented gas fireplace in any room and not worry a bit about wood logs or cleaning out the chimney. All you would now have to do is turn it on, and play some good music while you enjoy the warmth of the fireplace with some nice cookies and warm milk.

Such fireplaces are also the best bet for people who are worried about the central heating system that runs on electricity. Conventional heating systems are popularly known to consume a lot of electricity and would end up heating rooms that are not even occupied. With a vented gas fireplace, you do not have to worry about your electricity bill, since they run on gas and you would not have to worry about the wrong rooms being heated unnecessarily, since each heater would heat only those rooms that you wish to have heated. So please feel free to contact us to find out more information on vented gas fireplaces or even any other fireplace questions you may have. We the experts at Fireplace Showcase would be happy to help.

Fireplace Showcase Tips On Buying A Gas Fireplace

Joseph Coupal - Friday, September 03, 2010

For some gas fireplaces have increasingly become a favored choice over traditional fireplaces. They are easy to turn on with the flip of a switch, making them far more convenient to use than wood burning fireplaces. Many gas fireplaces are also available with remote controls and wall thermostats. Gas fireplaces do not require the purchase of wood nor the labor associated with purchase and storage. Avoiding wood piles means avoiding the termite risk that accompanies all wood storage areas. In multiple ways, gas fireplaces are simply a cleaner option.

Gas fireplaces are clean burning, energy efficient, and save the customers money over time. If you prefer liquid propane, The Fireplace Showcase can accommodate either version. Fireplace Showcase offers many models, sizes and styles to all their customers. The small downside however, is even the best ones don't offer the same flame look as a wood fire. But the amount of energy and money you'll be saving might out weigh the loss of the natural aesthetic look.       



There are both direct vent and vent free gas fireplaces available. Direct vent fireplaces use zero-clearance technology, meaning they don't need chimneys or foundations. A direct vent allows all of the combustion gases and moisture to leave your home without all the build up in chimneys. Venting is usually though a wall or roof, allowing for more flexibility than if a chimney was required. They are also easier to install than units with a chimney and give you greater placement options. 



A gas fireplace can be installed anywhere that a gas line is available, both in the middle of a room and along an outside wall. So you can have that traditional fireplace look along the wall, or try for a new sleek modern look in the middle of the room. Fireplace showcase can help with any installation and answer any questions you may have about placement. One last great perk about a gas fireplace is that they are easily maintained. All you need to do is have an annual inspection of the burner, fan, venting, pilot light and thermostat.

Gas fireplaces are not for everyone. The beauty and reward of traditional fireplaces and natural flame is undeniable. So of course, it always comes down to personal preference. Whatever your preference is, The Fireplace Showcase is there to deliver quality and valued solutions that will last a lifetime.
