Choosing The Ideal Fireplace
While fireplaces are a relaxing and inviting part of a home, for many homeowners buying the best fireplace can be quite a challenge. With so many different options and fireplaces to choose from it can be hard to know where to start when looking. Wood burning fireplaces come in different shapes and sizes and can be sized depending whether a person needs to heat a single room or an entire home. Here are some tips to help you make the choice that’s right for you.
1. Toronto Fireplaces Come In Many Shapes & Sizes
Small fireplaces are perfect for heating seasonal cottages or a single family room. In larger homes with older central furnaces it’s important to use a smaller fireplace to heat a specific area or zone and isn’t directly impacting the furnace thermostat that illustrates the overall temperature of your home. This ensures that your small Toronto fireplace complements your furnace, so both units can work together rather than compete for a specific temperature. A complementary system will result in reduce fuel consumption from your furnace and fireplace, energy savings, cost savings, and increased comfort.
Medium fireplaces are appropriate for heating small houses, cottages during the winter months, and medium-sized and energy-efficient homes. In Toronto fireplaces are very common in many older homes, and with regular maintenance and care they can last and function properly for years to come.
Large fireplaces are great for larger houses that are poorly sealed with lots of drafts and places where air leaks in and out. In Toronto fireplaces, specifically large fireplaces, are great additions to open concept homes as they offer powerful heats sources that can warm even the largest rooms.
