Relaxing at Our Place with The Place

The Place

Back in November I shared information about our visit to The Place in Medina. We saw so many wonderful options for making our home more relaxing. We put a lot of thought into our options and here’s what we decided with a little guidance from Joe at The Place.

Making Home More Inviting

This time of year we are all trying to stay warm and save on heating costs. Being that we moved here from California only 2 years ago, I am not used to the cold. At all! I am also struggling with being stuck indoors. So I really wanted a way to make me warm and make home more of a relaxing and inviting space.  We already have this really great stone from fireplace but it was wood burning and seemed to let more cold air in when we used it. We opted to have a new gas insert installed by The Place.

Making choices

The Place had a lot of options available, not just gas inserts but since we knew our fireplace we knew we wanted gas for sure. Joe showed us all of our available options ( size,color, shape, style,etc.) he also showed us how the fireplaces worked and explained the install process!  Doug asked a million questions. In the end we selected Heat and Glo gas insert with their beautiful Chateau arched front in the new bronze finish and the square chimney cap in copper! We also opted for the IntelliFire Plus RC300 Remote… because who wants to have to get up and flip a switch these days. 🙂 (We actually didn’t want the kids playing with the button.)

Preparation and Install

At The Place all of their sales and installation staff is certified by the National Fireplace Institute and  they keep their team knowledgeable with weekly training, online training and seasonal classes at Hearth Technologies Factory. So we knew Joe and his team knew everything they needed to, in order to safely, properly install our new insert. The 1st thing they did was an inspection of our fireplace and gas line. We ran into a few small problems because the gas line was installed in the 80’s on the outside of our house and was NOT up to code. We had the gas line replaced and also had electrical run to the back of the fireplace so we could avoid having a cord that little hands could get a hold of.  🙂  I was very impressed with the install they were in and out in less then 2 hours!

I love the final look. Now to build a mantle!

 Finished Product

We love the finished look and the amount of heat our new gas insert puts out. Even with over 6 inches of snow in the yard we are warm and toasty in the house. Our Gas bill hasn’t gone up but our house is warmer even after turning the furnace down. I am so glad we decided to  visit The Place and purchase an insert! If you are looking to add one to your house stop by the place and take a look at all of the options be sure to get your $100 off coupon and tell them Patricia at Akron Ohio Moms sent you for a referral discount!
