Romance

There is nothing more romantic than sitting in front of the fireplace with the person you love. Whether you two are sipping wine, watching a movie or indulging in a game of checkers, whatever you do is just that much more dreamy in front of a fireplace. And if you are parents who cannot find a babysitter, put the kids to bed and enjoy an amorous evening in front of the fireplace.fireplace

Cut Energy Costs

As the cost of electricity continues to climb, you will find a traditional or gas fireplace to be an energy saver. As an added bonus, when the electricity goes out during a storm, your fireplace will keep your family warm and cozy.

Cooking

When the electricity goes out, you can forget about popping popcorn on the electric stove or in the microwave. But with a fireplace, you can cook a four-course meal for the entire family. You can even have smores for dessert.

Looks Great

A fireplace is an asset to any house just due to the fact they make a home look great. The architecture of the hearth and mantel make a spectacular focal point in interior design. And a chimney adds depth the exterior look of any home.
