I was bequeathed a lovely historic home by my grandmother a couple years back. This home has been wonderful for my family and I really feel a strong connection to my late grandmother by living here. Recently, we’ve started making some upgrades to the home. We have upgraded the wi-fi (by adding some), the kitchen appliances and the decor. We also upgraded from a dial thermostat to a smart thermostat. With this new, programmable thermostat we are able to regulate the temperature while we’re away to keep our monthly heating and cooling costs down. The last thing that I really wanted adjusted in the house was the fact that it was so much colder in the living room than in the other rooms of the house. The air conditioning worked just fine but the heating seemed to not reach. I looked into zoned HVAC but that was out of my budget and seemed like a hassle. I did see, however, that adding a fireplace in the living room would actually be more affordable. In addition to that, it would look great. That living room was made for a fireplace and I’m surprised that my grandma didn’t already have one put in. I called my HVAC provider and they gave me some estimates and dates on putting in a fireplace. Soon after, there was a heating and cooling specialist at the house adding in that fireplace for me. The fireplace looks lovely and adds even more character to the historic home; it also, most importantly, keeps the living room nice and warm.
