How To Choose The Right Fireplace For Your Home Design

On cold Canadian winter nights, fireplaces offer cozy ambiance spots for families to gather and enjoy. Most house plans have a fireplace incorporated into the home design meant to accommodate families' desires of warmth and the glow of a burning flame. This is true for most living rooms, but you may find fireplaces in other spaces such as dining rooms, outdoor living spaces, and master suites.

Fireplaces, from A-Plus Quality HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, not only provide heat and light but make our homes beautiful. It is, therefore, necessary to find the right spot to include a fireplace in your home. Fireplace designs are broad and when choosing the right design for your home, you need to consider the heating functionality and the aesthetic of your home. Below are considerations when choosing the right fireplace for your family, lifestyle, and home design.

What Do You Want to Achieve?

As a homeowner, how do you envision a perfect fireplace from A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area? Do you want it to be the centerpiece of a room or flow with the rest of your decor? Figure out what goals you want your fireplace to help you achieve. Whether that be just increasing your home’s value or making a cozier space for your home, it is important to understand what your needs and wants are for having a fireplace in your home. 

What is Your Budget?

The most important consideration when deciding the best fireplace for your home design is your budget. Whether you want a simple or an elaborate fireplace with trims and finishes, be sure of all the costs involved.

What Type of Fireplace Do You Want?

Fireplaces come in all different sizes, shapes, and types. This includes traditional wood, gas, and electric fireplaces. In recent times there has been a strong trend for gas fireplaces in Toronto. Some of the most significant advantages of using a gas fireplace in Toronto is the efficiency in installation. It also requires minimal maintenance since there is no soot.

Another draw towards a gas fireplace in Toronto is the convenience of instantly switching it on. Gas fireplaces provide radiant heat with a hearth flame. Hence, they don't bring inconveniences popular with other methods.

Where Do You Want to Place It?

The location of the fireplace provides a dramatic effect to the whole house. For everyone's convenience, the best spot is in the living room where friends and family can converge. For people who would prefer more than one fireplace, the outdoor patio and master suite are great options. Each section of your home has its own style; therefore, it is important to decide on where you want your fireplace to be in order to choose a design that fits the specific room.

  • A Plus Quality responded quickly to my call re. AC not working, promptly diagnosed the problem and arranged for the fix. I’ve used them in the past and have confidence in their expert and professional service, both technical and front office.

  • On July 8, 2021, A Plus Quality Inc installed a boiler in my house. The company did a great job. The manager, Shak, came to give me a very detailed estimate. He also followed up every steps. He had a good team to come to do the installation. After installation, they check and explaining to me everything before leaving. I am really impressed. Besides, the office manager, Sandi, was very helpful too. I would like to recommend A Plus Quality Inc to my friends.

FAQ

  • Most common Boiler Issues

    - Boiler fails to ignite
    - Low pressure
    - Strange Noises
    - Boiler is not responding to the thermostat
    - Cold Radiators
    - Boiler leaking or dripping
    - Boiler cycling very fast

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
     
  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!
