Determine your Fireplace Goals & Do the Research
Determine Your Fireplace Goals: Do you want a fire for its aesthetic appearance or for its warmth?
Some fireplaces are more decorative. Other fireplaces are both heat efficient and visually pleasing.
What’s more, heat output is adjustable and can be controlled depending on your mood and the weather. Many fireplaces also work during power outages.
