The Benefits of Wood Fireplaces

Wood fireplaces have a variety of benefits for the home because they are not only an attractive addition to any space, but they are also a source of heat. They are especially great for when the power goes out because they do not rely on electricity or gas to work.

Throughout history, a fire has been a place to gather for storytelling after a hunt, cooking, or survival. Today we don’t need to use wood burning in the home for those essential functions, but we still enjoy sitting by an open fire. If your living room or bedroom needs an upgrade, considering a wood-burning fireplace for the added benefits is an excellent choice.

Environmentally Friendly

A wood-burning fireplace can be an environmentally friendly choice when you choose a fireplace from  Fireplace Xtraordinair! They have two models that are EPA certified. When burning wood, choose locally sourced firewood that has been properly seasoned, or dried out, for at least 6 to 12 months. Never burn wet wood, and make sure your chimney and fireplace are inspected and maintained regularly to prevent potential fire hazards.

Homes with a wood-burning fireplace sell for more because a fireplace is a highly desirable amenity for potential home buyers.

This same study also found that 21% of buyers thought finding a home with a fireplace is a “very important” consideration when hunting for a new place to live.
