Interested In A New Fireplace This Winter?

Fall has finally arrived and winter is just around the corner! We’re still enjoying mild temperatures and weather. That’s why now is the perfect time to consider adding a new fireplace to your home for the upcoming winter!

Do you already have an existing fireplace? Perhaps you want to add a brand new heating appliance? If so, updating your home with a new fireplace is easier than ever. At Clean Sweeps of Michigan, our wide variety of fireplaces, gas log sets, stoves, accessories, and more ensures you can find the perfect new heating appliance for your home.

Benefits of a new fireplace.

There are many reasons why homeowners decide to update their home with a new fireplace. Below are just a few of the many benefits of installing a new fireplace this winter!


  1. Increased efficiency.
    Modern fireplaces are extremely efficient, ensuring homeowners get the most bang for their buck. While traditional open hearth masonry fireplaces burn with only 5-10% efficiency, fireplace inserts can burn with up to 90% efficiency. According to the Hearth, Patio, and Barbeque Association, this can reduce energy costs by as much as 40%.
  2. Environmentally friendly.
    All fireplaces, stoves, and inserts must meet standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency. This helps minimize smoke and particulate emissions. Doing this makes the air cleaner for both your family and the rest of the community.
  3. Variety of fuel options.
    Having a wood burning fireplace doesn’t mean you have to use wood forever. Installing a new fireplace allows many homeowners to switch fuel sources to wood, gas, or pellets.
  4. Style choices for every home.
    Fireplaces come in a wider variety of styles than ever before. Whether your preferred style is French Country or sleek contemporary, there is a fireplace for every home!

Unfortunately, the Michigan climate does not always lend itself to large amounts of time spent relaxing outside! If you feel like you aren’t getting the most out of your patio, adding an outdoor gas fireplace may help revamp your outdoor living spaces!

One way to get the most out of your outdoor living space is by adding an outdoor gas fireplace. An outdoor gas fireplace can transform y our patio from a cold and rarely visited part of your home into a warm and inviting space for entertaining!

Benefits of an outdoor gas fireplace:

Many homeowners feel that they underutilize their patios. Whether you want to create an outdoor living space or extend the amount of time you can use your patio, there are a number of benefits to installing an outdoor gas fireplace.

1. Extend how long you can use your patio

Michigan is not known for its warm weather. Even during the summer, temperatures can drop in the evenings and make it just a little too cold to spend time outside. The addition of a gas fireplace to your outdoor space can extend how long you can use your patio by creating a warm and inviting heat source. In addition to keeping the chills away on summer evenings, it can also allow you to spend time outdoors sooner in the spring and later into the fall.

2. Create more space for entertaining

If having friends and family over for parties or informal gatherings is your idea of a good time, an outdoor gas fireplace can create an additional living space perfect for entertaining. An outdoor fireplace can anchor your outside space and create a focal point around which to group tables and seating. Whether it provides a focal point of an outdoor seating area or additional square footage for parties, an outdoor gas fireplace can make entertaining more fun.

3. Set the tone with added ambiance

Nothing helps you relax faster than soft, flickering firelight. An outdoor fireplace can help turn your patio into a relaxing backyard oasis that can be enjoyed any time day or night. Whether you want to unwind with a good book, enjoy an evening with friends, or spend a quiet romantic evening with your significant other an outdoor gas fireplace can set the mood.

4. Add value to your home

Gas fireplaces are beautiful and functional, but installing one can also add additional value to your home. Fireplaces are one of the most highly coveted features that prospective homebuyers look for and most buyers are willing to pay more for homes with a fireplace. Likewise, an outdoor fireplace can help your home stand apart from similar listings in the area.
