I like fireplaces to central heat in the winter
This may be an unpopular opinion, although I would rather use our fireplace in the Winter to stay warm than central heat.
I do have the privilege of living in an area where the winters are mild enough that I can get away with this.
Occasionally it will get truly cold here, however that usually does not last long. Last winter, the people I was with and I had a cold week where the people I was with and I had to turn the central heat on in addition to turn the fireplace on at the same time. I remember kneeling by the fireplace, with a blanket in addition to numerous layers on. That was a rare occasion. Typically it gets cold here, however not so cold that you need the central heat to live. I like the fireplace to central heat for numerous reasons. There is something so enjoyable about sitting by the fireplace in addition to feeling the natural heat on your skin. I love to watch the beautiful red colors of the fireplace in addition to hear the crackling sounds of wood burning. Sitting by the fireplace is a enjoyable experience for me. I do not mind the central heat, however the first time the people I was with and I run it there is constantly a distinct smell that I do not love. I love the smell of a natural fireplace. I also love the fact that you can save money on your electric bill when you use a fireplace instead of central heat. I like the cozy element of using a fireplace, the smell, the sights, the recognize of the warmth on our skin. This opinion is unpopular because numerous people say that a fireplace is too much work. You have to get the right type of wood to burn in addition to think exactly what you’re doing so no 1 gets hurt.
