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.

Client Testimonials

  • First experience was on New Year's Day, 2020, when furnace stopped. Called A-Plus and they had a rep (Jack) out quickly. He did some troubleshooting. He wasn't giving BS. Gave me options on repairing or replacing. Non-biased, no pressure. I chose replace and it was done the next day. Good experience all around. Second experience was early March, 2021 when a harsh chemical smell emanating from the furnace room, and pushed through the HVAC venting, permeated the house. Very concerning. Was late night, called A-Plus, immediately answered and suggested some safety moves for the evening. Booked a visit for the morning. Jack again came and assessed the issue and advised where the smell came from (outside). Again, very professional, quick, no BS, good guy. Completely satisfied with the service after often being given the BS treatment from other service providers for the house. Would definitely recommend.

FAQ

  • 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!

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • 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
    - Available Hot water but No Heat
