In the many years that I have been a beach Place native, I’ve never had a traditional fireplace.
I’ve had a couple of different fireplaces that use gas or electric, but my family and I have never had a true fireplace.
I do believe that a wood fireplace would mainly save a lot of money. My home is filled with great insulation, and a fireplace would actually keep much of that heat indoors. A week ago, the gas furnace stopped working and I sincerely thought about purchasing a fireplace instead of updating the gas furnace. I contacted a member of the heating, ventilation, and AC component business. They wanted a heap of money to come out and give me an estimate on replacing the furnace. I wasn’t even sure that I wanted to replace the furnace, and I definitely didn’t want to pay for a service that I could get elsewhere at no cost. I thought that a wood fireplace would come in handy and be nice to add some monetary value to our beach place. The heating, ventilation, and AC professional in our neighborhood is actually a good friend of mine. We’ve gone to school I think that both of us would be able to have a good talk about things that are going on around here. If that is the case, then we can talk freely about the fireplace and other options I might have for my Beach Place. If I can’t get things to work right, then I guess I’ll just go ahead and fix that Old Furnace.
