Fireplaces have been around for a long time, used for everything from cooking to heating. Today, they largely serve an aesthetic purpose, with electric and gas log models providing a cozy atmosphere to the home, as well as more traditional models that still rely on wood fuel. In Stony Point and other cities in New York, fireplaces make an ideal addition to those long, snowy nights. Why consider a fireplace for your home? The reasons are numerous.
- Ambiance. A fireplace immediately makes the area in which it’s placed feel cozier and more comfortable solely by virtue of its presence. The flicker of light and shadows on the wall immediately puts people at ease, and a working fireplace can add to the overall comfort of your home.
- Reduced Heating Costs. You can turn down your thermostat and use your fireplace to heat the room where you spend your evening. Not only does it provide plenty of warmth, but it can do so while reducing your heating bills in the bargain.
- Improved Home Value. Adding an aesthetically pleasing fireplace to your home – whether gas, wood or electric – constitutes a significant investment in its resale value. A home with a fireplace invariably sells for more than a comparable home, and you may even be able to recoup your initial investment in the fireplace when the time comes to sell.
- Versatility. People often think of fireplaces as large brick edifices, which may not fit with your home’s current look. Not to worry. Modern fireplaces are available in a wide variety of styles and facades designed to fit the aesthetic of any home.
