Spring is the Best Time to Upgrade Your Fireplace - Ann Arbor, MI - Clean SweepsA crackling fire on a cold winter’s night can quickly turn any house into a home. Over time, however, fireplaces and other heating appliances can age, deteriorate, or go out of style. Whether you want to install a new heating appliance or replace an existing one, spring is the perfect time to do so!

Why have fireplace upgrades done in the spring

After a long winter of use, many homeowners let their fireplaces fade into the background until the first cold snap of fall arrives. However, you should start thinking about making fireplace upgrades much sooner!

The spring is the perfect time of year to have fireplace upgrades done. First, mild spring weather minimizes the chance of delays for any outdoor masonry changes or repairs that need to be made. Some masonry projects cannot be done in either very hot or very cold weather; because of this, spring is an ideal time to have work done!

In addition to the weather, spring is also the perfect time to have fireplace upgrades done because you are likely not using your heating appliance. There is nothing more frustrating than waiting for your new fireplace, stove, or other heating appliance to be delivered and installed when the weather is chilly and you want to be using it! Likewise, because fall and winter are our busiest seasons for repairs and installations, you may find yourself waiting longer than usual for an appointment.

To avoid time delays due to the weather and have your fireplace finished and ready to go before the temperatures drop, have your fireplace updated this spring!

Benefits of a new heating appliance

There have never been more choices when it comes to fireplace inserts and stoves. Likewise, new heating appliances are more energy efficient than ever; many stoves and inserts are EPA certified to produce little to no air pollution. With a wide range of fuel choices, sizes, and styles, there is a perfect heating appliance for every home on every budget.

Gas fireplaces and inserts: Modern gas fireplaces and inserts are able to create extremely realistic flames at the touch of a button. Homeowners love the convenience, efficiency, and low cost of operating a gas heating appliance. Likewise, direct vent gas fireplaces can be installed almost anywhere in your home without the need for a chimney.

Wood fireplaces and stoves: A crackling wood fire can add instant warmth and ambiance to a room. While wood may seem like an old fashioned or outdated fuel choice, these appliances are anything but. Wood stoves are available in a variety of styles ranging from traditional cast iron to more modern styles.

Pellet stoves and inserts: For many homeowners, pellet stoves and inserts offer the best of both worlds between gas and wood. Pellets have a realistic burn and smoky aroma while also requiring minimal stoking or reloading; some pellet stoves only need to be reloaded every 2-3 days, even when being used round the clock. As pellet stoves and inserts continue to gain popularity, pellets are becoming increasingly easier to find in retail stores.
