In my opinion, fireplaces are the best heating systems that money can buy.
I absolutely love the heating system that I have.
I remember when I first decided that I would rather have a fireplace than a furnace. Sure, each heating system has advantages and disadvantages. I know that a lot of people thought that I was crazy because I did not want a furnace. I really did not want a furnace. Sure, furnaces are nice. You do not have to do anything to keep a furnace running. I have a fireplace instead. Now, I do not have one of the electric or natural gas fireplaces. I know that those fireplaces are much easier. Instead of having one of those heating systems, I decided to buy a wood fireplace. That means that all of the fuel for my heating system is wood, and it is difficult. It is a lot of work to cut the wood, stack the wood, haul the wood, and light the wood. You can easily spend most of your summer and fall getting the fuel ready for your heating system. Once it is time to start using your heating system, it can be very difficult. You have to light the fire for the heating system, and you also have to keep the heating system running. However, the ambiance that comes from the fireplace. Having the heating system running is awesome. Everyone loves sitting in front of the fireplace, and it makes a room look beautiful. Also, I do not have to rely on electricity to use my heating system, which is very nice. This is why I am thankful for my fireplace. I would never want a furnace.
