Why Spring in Wisconsin Is the BEST Time to Add a New Stove, Gas Fireplace or Fireplace Insert
Winter’s over in Wisconsin, so now’s the time to start shopping for a new fireplace or stove. We know – you’re probably thinking, “I’m finally able to go outside without freezing to death, and you’re telling me to focus on home heating?” That’s exactly what we’re telling you, and for good reason.
What most people do is wait until a little color starts coming to the leaves or, worse, until the first freeze in the fall to turn their attention to the upcoming winter and what kind of heating appliances they might want to add to their home. This means that as you’re driving to your local hearth store to do some shopping, so are all kinds of other people.
Shop early and beat the crowds, as they say
Do you want to shop within a flurry of buyers making off with the best fireplaces, stoves, inserts and log sets in a last-minute dash to get their new appliances? No. Do you want to vie for the attention of super-busy floor staff who are besieged by highly motivated buyers? No.
Granted, shopping for fireplaces isn’t as . . . problematic as shopping for Christmas gifts, but the principle is the same: Why fend off the masses of humanity on Black Friday when you can do your holiday shopping in (relative) peace in October, when the only thing people are buying is candy and weird-looking costumes?
For fireplace-shopping, make it easy on yourself and do it in the off-season. You’ll encounter sales associates who have more time to help you, and you’ll be the first to hear about the hottest new models and deals for the upcoming season. Won’t it feel good to spend a pretty spring day getting your new fireplace, stove or insert and knowing you’ve got the rest of spring and the whole summer to kick back and do anything you want? (Like that’s ever going to happen!)
