Even though furnaces have been around since the 19th century, homes are still frequently built with a fireplace. Why? Well, humans have had a relationship with fire for as long as we’ve been around. Throughout history we’ve used it to cook food, remain warm during winter and as a social gathering spot. The only thing that has changed with the modern era is that we no longer need it to survive, but we still want fire in our lives.
Sometimes a home isn’t built with a fireplace because it isn’t needed anymore. But, with the cost of oil and electricity, it’s an attractive alternative to running the furnace in the middle of winter. Plus, having a gorgeous fireplace will increase a home’s value.
