Why You Should Think Twice Before Buying Online

Your home is unique to you, and the same can be said for the installation of your fireplace: something that only an authorized dealer can understand. Although it may be tempting to save a little bit of money initially by purchasing online, there are many other factors at play that WILL end up costing you more money in the long run. For starters:

*Do you know for sure that the fireplace you’ve selected is compatible with your home?
*What if your fireplace is defective, or malfunctioning? How much is that going to cost to repair? Perhaps more importantly, how long will it take to repair?
*Many local fireplace dealers will not service a fireplace that they didn’t sell. If they do, then it usually comes at a higher price than if they had made the purchase with the dealer.
*Regional and national regulations are very strict when it comes to fireplace installation. Failure to use a certified chimney installer may void your home insurance in case of fire.
*There is a much higher risk of fire-damage by purchasing online and using inexperienced installers.
