Should you add a Fireplace to your new construction house plans?


Now that Winter has truly arrived, a nice warm fireplace or woodstove seems like a good idea. But is it really?

Stetsson FP resized 600Open fireplaces may look good, but the efficiency is questionable. House Logic has a great article  on energy efficient fireplaces. The article gives descriptions of the various types of fireplaces and how they measure up in terms of energy efficiency. If you choose the right type of added heat source you may even qualify for a tax credit or rebate.

Talk to your contractor when designing or building a new home, about adding a fireplace or other alternative heat source. Many of the Byler standard house plans have a fireplace option. It is a simple way to add warmth and value to your new home. 


If you have ever looked around your home and wondered how much it would cost to put a fireplace in a certain wall, room or area, you will be surprised when you hear the answer.
