Pros & Cons of Fireplaces

Whether your home has a fireplace or not, you need to understand the benefits and drawbacks of a fireplace when deciding about your next remodel. Some of the pros of having a fireplace include:

  • Adds cozy charm to the space
  • Gives you another option to heat your main living area
  • Adds a mantle for decorating
  • Creates the right ambiance in your home

Of course, fireplaces are not perfect. Some potential downsides include:

  • Potential safety issues with small children
  • Cleaning needed for wood-burning fireplaces
  • Need to buy firewood

Several of these downsides are actually eliminated with the use of an electric fireplace, but regardless, they do need to be considered as you decide what is the right choice for your home.

Breathe New Life Into Your Fireplace With a Remodel

If your fireplace is outdated, you may want to consider an upgrade with your next remodeling project. Remodeling your fireplace can recreate the nostalgia of growing up with that rustic, cabin feel or provide a sleek, modern twist on a timeless feature of any home. Even if your home currently lacks a fireplace and the benefits that come with it, you do have options. DiFabion Remodeling is here to talk you through the pros and cons of adding this popular feature and help you decide if a wood-burning fireplace, a gas insert, or an electric unit is right for you and your family.

Consider Installing a New Fireplace

If you want to enjoy the benefits of a fireplace but don’t have one, you do have options. Adding a traditional wood-burning fireplace is an exceptionally costly endeavor because you have to remodel the home to add the required chimney. Gas-powered fireplaces are a little less costly, but still require running gas lines to the fireplace. Instead, if you are adding a fireplace to a home that doesn’t have one already, opt for an electric model. Enjoy all of the benefits, with minimal effort and risk, with an electric fireplace.
