Spring has arrived, and with it comes warmer days. But the nights are still cool, and you might need a bit of extra heat in your home in the next month. Running your furnace can be a waste of energy and fuel, especially when you are only running it for a few hours to knock off the chill.
A fireplace can be the perfect solution for these cool nights. You can put on a fire to take the chill out of the air, using less energy and fuel while still staying comfortable. Here are some other reasons that fireplaces are great for spring.
Substitute for a Fire Pit
When it’s raining and you can’t use your fire pit, a fireplace can be a great alternative. Just as you gather with friends and family around the firepit, so too can you gather around the fireplace. The rainy season is coming, and there may be times you are not able to use your firepit when you had planned. The fireplace can be a substitute.
Never Cancel Plans
If you like to have friends and family over for frequent fires, it can be frustrating when your plans get rained out. But if you have a fireplace, you can just move the party indoors, while still enjoying the ambiance of a good fire, which always leads to good conversation and good company.
Bring the Family Together
When you have a fireplace in one room of the house and the night is chilly, the fireplace can bring the household together. Even if you have teenagers that tend to avoid family and stick to their rooms, you will find that they come out and join the family in order to enjoy the warmth on a chilly night.
