Unwinding in front of the fireplace after a long day’s work is something we can all relate to. Looking into the flames and enjoying the crackle of the wood is something that has comforted and soothed humans for thousands of years. In this piece we will take a closer look at some of the benefits associated with installing a wood burning fireplace in your home. They are most cost effective in the long term Electricity and gas prices continue to soar to new heights every year and show no signs of slowing down. The truth is, using a wood burning fireplace instead of a gas option can save you money. Wood is relatively cheap and firelogs can be purchased in bulk from most grocery stores. Gas, however, is a different story – with prices continuing to increase, many households are struggling to cope with the costs involved when running a gas system. They’re more environmentally friendly than you’d think While wood burning fireplaces do give off quite a bit of smoke, most of the wood that is widely available on the market today is cleanly produced, and because this wood is allowed to season properly there is very little moisture in it while it burns. This reduces the harmful emissions that it can produce while burning. They’re unparalleled in terms of their aesthetic charm If installed properly, a wood burning fireplace offers your living room a warm feel while noticeably enhancing the atmosphere within your home. The cracking of the wood and the dancing of the flames can set the perfect tone for an evening spent at home watching your favourite movies.
