Ready for Winter so I Can Get my Fireplace Going

I will be hibernating this winter in front of my fireplace and letting my body heal from all of the pains of playing entirely too much beach ball with my friends.

This is why I am looking forward to colder days when nobody can play on the beach because of the temps and the early sunsets.

So it is going to be all about fires and fireplaces this winter. There’s something cozy and inviting about a crackling fire on a cold winter’s night. While modern heating systems have come a long way, there’s still something to be said for the old-fashioned appeal of a fireplace. If you’re thinking of adding a fireplace to your home or simply want to make better use of the one you have, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, you’ll need to choose the right location. The fireplace should be placed in an area that doesn’t block heating vents or doors leading outside. You’ll also need to consider the type of fuel you want to use. Wood Burning fireplaces are classic, but they can be messy and require more upkeep than gas or electric models. Once you’ve decided on the location and type of fireplace, it’s important to have it inspected and cleaned by a qualified professional before using it for the first time. With a little planning and care, a fireplace can be a wonderful addition to any home, or in my case, an apartment in an apartment building. Just make sure you are safe when playing around with fire and matches.
