Picture yourself on a chilly winter evening, relaxing next to the fireplace. Imagine basking in the soft glow as you enjoy the warmth and comfort. It feels like a little slice of heaven.
If you’ve been thinking about how nice it would be to have a fireplace in your home, now is the perfect time to make your dream come true.
Fireplaces and Florida Homes: The Perfect Combination
Installing a fireplace in a home that’s located in a sub-tropical climate may seem strange at first. However, it’s easy to see why this is such a popular option in upscale Florida homes.
While Florida has plenty of sunshine and warm weather, the winter months will bring a chill. In fact, in January, it’s common for temperatures to drop into the 40s. When it starts to get frigid, a fireplace provides energy-efficient heat while creating a cozy ambiance.
A fireplace can instantly transform a room in a way that nothing else can. They add the perfect touch to living rooms, dining rooms, and even the master bedroom or bath! We offer a variety of fireplace sizes and styles, so you’re sure to find the perfect one for your space.
Want a fireplace you can use year-round? Ask us about our new indoor fireplaces that redirect the heat outdoors! This allows you to enjoy the cozy ambiance, even in the middle of summer.
We also offer Dimplex electric fireplaces that are vent-free, smoke free, and offer a zero-emissions heat source. The reduced use and cost of energy is a benefit to the environment and to your wallet!
Benefits of Propane and Natural Gas Fireplaces
The most common types of fireplace are wood-burning, electric, propane and natural gas. In recent years, the latter has become the most popular option. Today, close to 70% of fireplaces are designed to burn propane or natural gas. There are several reasons for this trend.
First, they’re extremely easy to operate. You can turn on a propane or natural gas fireplace with a click of a button. Unlike electric and wood-burning fireplaces, your gas fireplace will begin creating heat right away. It will provide a consistent, steady flame so you can easily regulate your home’s temperature. You won’t have to worry about the stress of building and continually stoking a fire or layering on extra clothing while you wait for your home to warm up.
Wood-burning fireplaces lose as much as 90% of the heat they generate while propane and natural fireplaces are 65% to 99% efficient. This can lead to a cost savings up 30 to 60 percent per hour! Over the lifetime of your fireplace, propane or natural gas will provide you with significant cost savings.
Questions to Ask Before Choosing Your Fireplace
Choosing the right fireplace for your space requires a bit of thought. However, when you know what questions to ask, it’s easy to narrow down your choices. You’ll want to start with the basics: your budget, the size and location, and your personal home décor style.
If you prefer a traditional design, you’ll want to choose a fireplace model with large flames, embers, and realistic-looking logs.
You’ll also want to consider how much heat output you need. This will vary depending on the size of the space and how much you want to rely on your HVAC system.
If you’re not sure exactly what you need, our experienced sales team is here to help you evaluate your options so you can choose the best fireplace for your home.
