Does your home have a fireplace? If not, consider getting one! Not only is a fireplace a fantastic functional element since that helps to add heat and comfort to your home, it’s also an excellent design element that provides an inviting and decorative focal point. The following are a few things to be aware of when adding a radiant gas fireplace to your home:
Building codes – Before investing in a fireplace, make sure that you’re aware of all local building codes. Different places often require different restrictions for fireplaces and chimneys.
- Consider safety – Always hire a professional to ensure the safety of your home. A poorly installed fireplace can lead to serious safety issues. Also, be sure to install several smoke and carbon monoxide detectors around your home.
- Think about needs – When choosing a fireplace, consider why you want a fireplace. Do you want it for the atmosphere it creates or for the function of heating your room? This will help determine what type of gas fireplace you choose.
