The Value of Adding a Fireplace
What Does a Fireplace Return on Investment?
For centuries, fireplaces have served as the centerpiece of homes. Today, the crackling flames and homey ambiance of a fire are more than just a nicety. Fun and functional, there are an array of reasons modern fireplaces are on the must-have list of today’s homebuyers, fueling the growing prevalence of both indoor and outdoor models.
A Fireplace Adds More than Warmth
- Style & AtmosphereToday’s wide variety of styles and designs offers amazing options for adding flair to any home style, allowing you to create a warm, inviting environment to enjoy for years to come. What’s more, available flexible installation options allow for fireplace additions nearly anywhere in the home, including bedrooms, kitchens, halls and even baths.
- Property ValueProperty experts agree a fireplace dramatically increases the value and appeal of your home. 2013 National Association of Realtor (NAR) research revealed “fireplaces have a strong, positive effect on selling price with each fireplace adding about 12 percent.” 2015 studies further indicated fireplaces as the #1 feature most often mentioned in home listings, with over 60% of buyers revealing they’re on the lookout for a fireplace when purchasing a home.
- Comfort & EfficiencyThough each option has different efficiency level and environmental impact, whether you add an electric, wood, gas, or pellet burning fireplace model, energy saving are imminent. In fact, when used as part of a zoned heating approach, fireplaces can help you save up to 40% on home heating.
