We’d be able to regulate temperature through a cordless remote and benefit from zoned heating
I regularly thought it would be awesome to have a wood burning fireplace in our home. When our partner and I planned the design of our new house, I insisted that every one of us include a gigantic fireplace in the kitchen. The two of us spent a fortune installing the chimney, marble mantle and intricate hearth. The end result is really wonderful. It’s also a complete waste of space. After living in the home for numerous years, we’ve built a single fire. Chopping down wood is terrible and time-consuming, but dragging the wood through the house created a sizable mess. Building the fire was difficult, and after that I dealt with fumes, smoke and soot, but stray sparks singed the carpet. The two of us needed to huddle right near the fireplace to care about the heat. I have now started looking into the opportunity of converting the wood burning fireplace into a natural gas heater. I’ve consulted with a local Heating and Air Conditioning company who specializes in natural gas fireplace replacement. The project won’t cause much of a disruption to our home but will require additional expense. At least the fireplace will finally serve a purpose. It would supplement our home’s heating system and help to improve comfort in the kitchen. We’d be able to regulate temperature through a cordless remote and benefit from zoned heating. We’d also care about the look and ambience of a fire with none of the downsides. An installed fan would spread the heat evenly throughout the room, then natural gas furnaces burn clean, separate from fumes, and are wonderfully energy efficient. The Heating and Air Conditioning company as gave a reasonable estimate, and we’ve busy the replacement for the early fall.
