Fireplace could add a little warmth, value to your home

When cool weather arrives

August 12th, 2012 in News

A fireplace is a must-have feature for many home buyers, especially in high-end homes.

With the scorching temperatures that have been drying out the state for the last couple months, finding a way to turn up the heat is probably the last thing on the minds of most Missourians.

But, in a number of weeks, cooler weather will prevail, and warmth will be welcomed again.

"Homeowners build fireplaces for the heat and the ambiance," said Linda Bogg, co-owner of Best Fire Inc. Stove and Fireplace Center. "People like to look at the flames of a fire. It is mesmerizing."

Fireplaces have three major categories which include gas, electric and wood burning.
