A Wide Range Of Choices
Back in the day, fireplaces were limited to a few standard designs. Creators found a model that worked, then most homes were equipped with a similar set-up, ensuring families got as much heat as possible. In today’s world, we’re blessed with a lot more options, especially since most homes don’t actually require a fireplace as their main source of heat. This means you can choose from various fuel types, as well as design and style options!
Here at Sweeps & Ladders, you can decide between a gas, wood, or pellet stove, or you can invest in a gas, wood, or electric fireplace. Each has their own benefits and our team would be happy to discuss the various options we offer. If you’re looking to invest in a new model for your home, call today so that we can set you up right before Christmas arrives!
