When looking for a new home, is a fireplace on your list of wants?
For many people, a fireplace makes a house feel like home. It creates a cozy atmosphere during the cold winter months. At Christmas, it is someplace you can hang your stockings. After a long day at work, it is a place where you can curl up with a book and a mug of hot cocoa and relax. All year long, it is a focal point for your living space where family photos can be displayed. Excelsior Homes West, Inc. has different Schult Homes fireplace options available. Here is a list of fireplaces we offer and the benefits of each.
Schult Homes Fireplace-Wood Burning Option
Schult Homes offers a wood burning fireplace with different options for the surround. Dress up the face of the fireplace with a fieldstone, ceramic, or slate look.
One benefit of a wood burning fireplace is the cost of using it during the colder months. If you own a lot of land with trees, a wood burning fireplace is less costly. You can cut down a tree before the colder months and have plenty of wood to use throughout the winter. People also enjoy the look and smell of a real fire or the snap and crackle of the logs when they heat up. A “traditional” fireplace can bring back memories and past experiences, adding some charm.
Schult Homes Fireplace- Gas Option
Gas fireplace inserts are an option with Schult Homes. Just like the wood burning fireplace, you can add a fieldstone, ceramic, or slate surround. With the Schult gas fireplace, you also have a see-thru option. Enjoy a fire in the living room and, at the same time, in the dining room when entertaining family and friends.
Gas fireplaces are becoming more popular due to the ease of use. A gas fireplace can be turned on with a flip of a switch. There is no time spent on starting the fire from logs and a match. You are able to enjoy the fire with no hassle in starting it. With a gas fireplace, you also have little maintenance involved. There is no need to clean up ashes or get the chimney inspected.
Schult Homes Fireplace- Electric Option
Electric fireplaces are also an excellent fireplace option. Again with Schult Homes, you have the option of adding the fieldstone, ceramic, or slate surround. With the electric fireplace, they also have the new RAVE upgrade that has bookcases on both sides of the fireplace. It becomes more of a focal point for your living space.
Electric fireplaces have many benefits as well. There is no open flames or fumes, making it safer for families with children. Just like gas fireplaces, electric are low maintenance and energy efficient. Some people even choose to use their electric fireplaces year-round.
