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.

If you are remodeling for your own enjoyment, a room with a fireplace adds a whole new dimension to entertaining. Click “fireplace inserts” for more information from Fireplace Showcase.

What is More Convenient than a Wood Fire With Just as Much Ambiance?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 24, 2011
Gas logs! Oftentimes, gas logs are just what a homeowner is looking for when it comes to doing something with their fireplace. Maybe you don’t want to put in the effort of burning wood, but maybe you want a fire burning in your living or family room every once in a while. If you are looking for the ambiance of a real fire, but you want to remain hassle free, gas logs may be the answer.

Gas fireplace logs give the appearance of burning real wood.  Depending on your personal choice, budget and placement of the log set, they can be vented or vent-free. Gas logs are made from a special material and are hand designed to look like real burning wood. Designed with all types of wood styles in mind, including split logs, burnt, and birch, gas logs from Fireplace Showcase can have the desired effect in any room without the hassle of splitting, stacking and hauling wood.

Gas logs are often a perfect option because of both convenience and cost. With a flick of a switch or remote control, you can have a fire burning whenever you want one. Contact Fireplace Showcase if you have wanted to do something easy and beautiful with your fireplace.
