Warm Up to the Cold Season With an Indoor Fireplace

Your heating system does a great job heating your home as the temperatures drop, but there’s nothing like the warmth and crackle that comes from an indoor fireplace. It adds a cozy centerpiece to your home, perfect for both holiday parties and relaxing weekends at home. The experts at Merrill Sheet Metal Works share some of the biggest benefits that come with installing an indoor fireplace.


A fireplace’s number one use is to add warmth. While the job of a furnace, boiler, or other heating system is to heat your entire home, a fireplace can act as a more centralized source of warmth. Plus, most fireplaces—especially gas and wood-burning models—have the added benefit of working even if your power goes out.

Prevent Excess Stress on Your Furnace

Because your fireplace gives off such warmth, you don’t have to turn up your thermostat as high for heat. That puts less stress on your furnace, which can help prolong its lifespan and avoid certain breakdowns. And because you don’t have to turn up the thermostat with a fireplace running, you may even see lower energy costs on your next bill. Win-win-win.

Cozy Ambiance

A house with an indoor fireplace just feels more like a home, with the crackling flames and comfortable fireside aesthetic. Adding to that ambiance is the ability to customize its color, size, and fuel source to match the rest of your décor. All in all, it makes for an ideal setting for cozying up on chilly winter nights or lazy weekends, or hosting holiday gatherings at your place.
