Determining What Size Your Home Fireplace Should Be

There are a few factors that affect what the best size will be for your home fireplace.

Have you considered getting a new fireplace for your house? If you’re planning on getting a fireplace for your home, one of the choices you’ll need to make is determining the size your fireplace will be. There are a few factors that affect what the best size will be for your home fireplace, and we’ll be looking at these factors with you today.

Consider the Size of Your Room

Bigger rooms will require more heat. The more heat you need, the bigger your home fireplace should be. That’s why home fireplaces should have sizes that are directly proportional to the sizes of the rooms in which they’re installed. A fireplace installation company can give you specifics regarding the exact size you’ll want for your fireplace.

Is There an Existing Chimney?

If you’re building a fireplace and chimney from scratch, or you’re going with a ventless model, you can design your fireplace to suit the dimensions of your insert. Perhaps, however,  there’s already a chimney in the spot where you plan to install your fireplace. If this is the case, you will require an insert that works with the space, which can limit your options a little more. To ensure a good fit, you’ll want to measure the area, then use that measurement to determine the appropriate size for your fireplace.

How Much Energy Do You Want Your Fireplace to Use?

Generally speaking, the larger your home fireplace is, the more energy it will require. Think about how much energy you’re willing to use to fuel your fireplace because it will affect your energy bill on a regular basis.

If you have a more flexible energy bill, you might be willing to explore larger fireplace models. For those who want to limit their utility expenses, smaller models might be better-suited for you.
