Adding a fireplace to an existing home
Any advise on adding a fireplace to an existing home?
We live in Climate Zone 5, and the winters get pretty chilly. We have geothermal, but it doesn’t seem to help much in the way of warming during the winter. Our heating bills were outrageous last year.
We are looking into adding a fireplace, and would like to vent out the gable end of the home, if possible.
We have a company coming out to give us a quote, but anything I should consider to mention to them? We have a metal roof, I would love to avoid making any holes through it.
