How To Increase Your Home’s Resale Value With A Fireplace Makeover
It is home improvement season. Tackling a project around the house is a great way to relieve the restless energy that builds up during the cold winter months. Adding or updating a fireplace is a great place to start.
According to Home Advisor, adding a fireplace to your home is one of the top three minor projects that can increase its value. Along with increasing your home’s resale value, it could be the deciding factor that turns a prospective home buyer’s “Maybe” into a “Yes.” Prospective home buyers aren’t the only ones who will appreciate this upgrade. You and your loved ones will also get to enjoy the beauty and warmth of your new home addition.
With the wide selection of prefabricated fireplaces available today that are as beautiful as traditional masonry fireplaces, you can add a fireplace to your home without a big hassle or huge expense. The best way to decide what fireplace would be right for your home is to browse photos online and stop by a showroom where you can see a large selection of options in person.

If you already have a fireplace but it is outdated, giving it a makeover can make your home feel more contemporary and welcoming. It is also a great opportunity to make your fireplace more energy efficient. Installing fireplace doors or a fireplace insert can significantly increase the energy efficiency of your fireplace so that it produces more heat with less fuel. Both also improve the overall energy efficiency of your home by prevent air-conditioned air and warm air from the furnace from escaping up the chimney. You’ll be able to enjoy lower energy bills while your heating and cooling system appreciates the break.
