From the beginning of time, fire has been an integral part of life. A source of warmth and a method of cooking food. Fire has been there for it all throughout history. Once we started living in houses, fireplaces continued to be an important anchor to the home. Lots of advancements have transpired over the years, but fireplaces continue to be a magnet for friends and family to gather around and enjoy.

Fireplaces have mostly transitioned from a place to cook, to one just to admire and warm up by. Gas log fireplaces, wood burning inserts, and electric fireplaces are just a few of the modern evolutions of fireplaces. Each of these has several different advantages. Some are more affordable than others. Some are more eco-friendly, and some have more ease of use. Be sure you do your research to find the fireplace perfect for you and your home.
