Burlington continues to be ranked as one of the Top 10 cities in Canada to live, with varying options from condominiums and townhomes to monster-mansions, both new and old. Trendy design today still gives credit to the impact of a great fireplace in your home. Although traditionally located in living or family rooms, modern designs have begun to include fireplaces in kitchens and master suites as a throwback to the era of the wood burning fire place (pre-furnace!). This design feature can add charm and romance to homes both new and old.
Whether you live in a one bedroom condominium in mid-town Burlington or a beautiful older home on Lakeshore Rd., consider installing a fire place to add resale value and ambiance to your living space. At Hamilton Home Comfort, we suggest that you consider a fireplace that uses natural gas, or a traditional wood fireplace, for the most authentic fire that can really establish the ambiance of your home all year around. Installation can almost always be completed in one day, at a time that works best for you and your family. The styles and models that we offer range from a traditional to more modern look, and are versatile enough to work with a magnitude of mantel options.
Particularly if you are located close to Lake Ontario, your fireplace can serve as a heating function just as much as a design choice. Using fireplaces in larger homes help to keep your heating bill under control because you can localize your heating needs to the rooms in which you spend the most time. This efficiency feature has inspired many owners of large homes who experience winds off of the lake to invest in an additional gas fireplace in their home.
If you already have a fireplace in a desired location, it is still important to consider safety.
While it is easy to think that what has always worked will continue to work, it is important to conduct routine checks on your fireplace, whether it is gas, electric or wood-burning, to ensure the safety of your family and friends in your home. Only trust a certified technician to make repairs on your fireplace or to install one brand new. Your technician should ensure that your fireplace is running as safely, smoothly and efficiently as possible. The specialists at Hamilton Home Comfort are fully certified and have over 25 years of experience in installation, repair and maintenance – whether your home is new or old.
Very friendly and professional service! Installation went without a hitch and exceeded our expectations. I would definitely recommend them, the go-to company for a fireplace!
