Our home has a fireplace. This is only the second time we’ve ever had a fireplace, ever; our first fireplace was in an apartment whose living room really wasn’t big enough to support a fireplace. But it was something.
As we head into the final days of summer though, I’m starting to wonder if we should operate the fireplace at all during the winter. It seems like a good idea but then I think about the maintenance, burning things, and the possible damage to anything that lives on the fireplace wall. I hope that wouldn’t happen but… who knows?
So any Pingers out there with fireplaces: are they great? Are they worth it? Or should we settle for a curled-up sleeping dog next to us on the couch for heat?
