A fireplace is the heart of your home that offers many intimate moments with loved ones, such as having a glass of wine with your partner or playing a family-favorite game for a fun Saturday night.

Fireplace installation adds value by giving your home warmth, luxury, and coziness and increases the property’s worth. Here’s how:

Energy-Efficient Fireplaces Decrease Utility Costs

If you have a modern gas-burning or electric fireplace built with energy-efficient material and inserts, it can cut your winter heating costs. A traditional fireplace loses most of its heat in the chimney and doesn’t keep your home as warm as it should.

Moreover, winters in Connecticut can be harsh, and your heating systems may work more than usual, adding to your electricity bill. Installing an energy-efficient fireplace will decrease your utility expenses and keep you warm.

You Can Transform the Whole Look of Your House

Everyone wants a home that radiates beauty from every corner. Adding a fireplace to your home’s interior can elevate its aesthetics and offer a cozy room for the whole family to gather. You can even add one outdoors to get a stunning modern backyard. Entertain your guests there or enjoy sunsets on chilly autumn evenings.

Lasts for a Long Time

A high-quality gas fireplace can last for more than a decade, ensuring your family makes the most of it. If you perform routine maintenance, it can last even longer. Modern advancements allow you to add gas fireplace inserts that can be replaced easily at a low cost.

Attract More Buyers

Whether your house has a magical backyard or an inviting living room because of a fireplace, it will stand out among other homes on the market. It will enjoy more attention, and the energy-efficient factor is another feature most homebuyers are looking for. According to a 2021 survey of What Home Buyers Really Want, many homebuyers desire an outdoor fireplace.

Increases the Property’s Value

Fireplaces are among the most prominent features buyers look for while viewing listings, especially high-end buyers. The selling price of a home with a fireplace can go up 13% more than the national median sale price. If you’re planning to install a fireplace in your home, go for gas fireplaces because they are among the most popular home trends for buyers in the US.

Even if you’re not planning to sell your home, a fireplace can give a lot of benefits to the whole family. No device can keep you as warm as a fireplace. It gives your home easy-to-afford luxury, pleasing aesthetics and architecture, and a comfortable spot for family time.
