Benefits of a Fireplace

Sitting before a crackling fire during the chilly winter and spring nights might be the first thing that comes to your mind when you consider the benefits of having a fireplace in your home. Fireplaces and stoves provide many advantages besides the luxurious warmth and added architectural value. Below are some of these benefits that you may not have contemplated:

Cooking: Imagining people cooking their meals over a wood-burning fireplace may remind you of something you have seen in classic movies, before the invention of electric or gas stoves. Whether you use it to warm up your soup during a power outage or go classic to cook meals occasionally, you can save money on your bills while the fire warms your home at the same time. This will be an experience that you can enjoy—imagining the olden days and delighting in the romantic and satisfactory feeling of tasting your homemade, woodstove-cooked food.

Eco-Friendly Heating: Wood is a renewable, sustainable resource; this is why wood harvesters in the U.S. are planting more trees than they cut down. Burning firewood does not add any more carbon to the environment than if the firewood decayed naturally, unlike fossil fuels, which release large amounts of carbon.

Lower Bills: Homeowners with a fireplace—while enjoying the same amount of heat—enjoy much lower heating bills than those who do not. The fireplace warmth emanating from your living room allows you to adjust the heating system in the rest of the home to lower levels, subsequently making you less dependent on utility companies and able to enjoy lower heating bills.

Romantic and Cozy Settings: Families and friends gather around the crackling fireplace during winter nights, parties, story time, Christmas, and power outages to enjoy a special sort of intimacy. No matter what the occasion, there is always a unique feeling of relaxation and coziness when sitting before a hissing and sputtering log—whether you are cuddling with your beloved partner sipping a glass of wine or lying reclined on a couch, reading your favorite book.

A fireplace is a great addition to your home. To be safe and to enjoy all the great benefits of your fireplace, bring a professional chimney sweep to clean and inspect your chimney once a year.

Thank you, Bob, for making your schedule work to get Stephanie's chimney repair finished while I was in Charlotte. What a super trio of guys you three are! Thanks again.

We purchased our home in Belmont and it had a very nice wood burning fireplace that needed some work. I called several other companies but once I spoke to Bob I could tell he had many years of experience and knew exactly how to advise me. He let me ask as many questions as I wanted and explained the work that needed to be done. The project was completed in the time-frame he said and within the estimated price he provided. I would recommend him to anyone I know.

When I called [Bob] it was obvious he has many years or experience with Fireplaces and Chimneys. I like that he took the time to answer the questions and to explain the situation and options I needed for my fireplace. I called three other companies before him and each one gave misinformation and didn't want to take the time to explain and teach me so I could make an educated decision. Instead they just wanted to sell me something I didn't need. I never knew there were so many intricacies to the business but now know exactly who to call to get my questions answered and get the best service at a fair price! I'm so lucky I found him before choosing one of the other guys.

Called Bob and he was able to come out in 2 days. He showed up on time and was very professional (even letting me know when he was 30 minutes out). He looked at the fireplace and made the recommendation for repair with some estimated pricing. So right there on the spot he helped me walked through the decision process on what would fix the issue. I was VERY happy with his knowledge and felt like I could trust him to give me the right advice and not just try to sell me something. Thanks Bob!
