- Where will your hearth product go?
With today's venting options, hearth products can be installed almost anywhere
in the home. Consider a fireplace for nontraditional locations, such as the
kitchen, home office or master bedroom or bath. Even outdoor fireplaces by
patios and decks are a very popular trend today.
- Do you have an existing fireplace or
stove? If you have a unit that is inefficient or seldom used, converting to a
new hearth product may be simple and surprisingly affordable. Gas logs or a
fireplace insert may be just right for you.
- Are you building a new home or
remodeling? You can add atmosphere and focus to your home by incorporating a
hearth product early in the design stage. Talk to your architect or remodeler.
- Do you want a fire for its aesthetic
appearance or for its warmth? Some hearth products are simply decorative,
while others are extremely efficient and beautiful to watch at the same time.

during power outages? One of the benefits of most hearth products is that they
can operate during power outages, when you need the heat the most.

as supplying your own wood, building and tending a fire. If someone in the
house has allergies, that needs to be considered.
- What finished look do you want for
your home? The hearth products industry offers many choices to consumers.
- How much do you want to spend? Price
is always a consideration. Hearth Product prices range from a few hundred
dollars to several thousand dollars. Fuel prices also are a factor to consider
