If you are considering adding a wood burning fireplace to your home, there is no time better than late summer to start the process. While sitting in front of a warm fire may be the furthest thing from your mind during these hot summer days, taking time to prepare and plan for your fireplace installation now can save you valuable time later. Whether you are adding a new unit to your living space or upgrading an existing one, starting the process in summer will ensure you are ready when the thermometer starts to drop.
August and early September are great months to start planning your fireplace installation for a number of reasons. First, planning early allows you to receive the materials in time to install. Once ordered, inserts can take anywhere from four to six weeks to be shipped and delivered. Secondly, you will want to ensure a certified CSIA chimney technician installs your unit. Now is a great time to schedule your installation with them as their schedules are still open before peak season hits. Lastly, the milder temperatures and weather make it easier for work to be completed both inside and outside the home. No snow, sleet, and frigid temperatures to fight with.
Advantages of Installing a Fireplace Insert
There are many benefits to installing a new wood burning fireplace insert. One obvious advantage is the ability to enjoy a warming fire during the cold winter months. These types of fireplaces also offer an energy backup source should the power go out. With today’s high gas prices, using a fireplace on a regular basis can also help lower utility bills and save you money.
