I’ve never had a fireplace but I really want to get one

I might get a fireplace and then realize that I really need to get a new furnace, I will just have to see what happens

In all the years I have lived at my house I have never had a fireplace but I think I am finally ready to get one. I have had a gas fireplace before but never a real fireplace. The reason that I want to get a real fireplace is mainly to save money. I have really good insulation in my home so I know that if I have a good fireplace I will be able to keep all of the heat in. My furnace recently broke down and I don’t want to call an HVAC technician because I know they will charge me an arm and a leg to fix my HVAC system. I would much rather get a fireplace because then I won’t have to constantly fix my HVAC system. If I get decide to get a fireplace I won’t have to worry about it breaking. I was going to get a smart thermostat because my neighbor won’t stop talking about how amazing they are, but I don’t think I want to spend the extra money. The other nice thing about a fireplace is that if the power goes out I will still have heating. The power goes out a lot where I live, so having a furnace doesn’t really do much for me during those times. I might get a fireplace and then realize that I really need to get a new furnace, I will just have to see what happens. My HVAC technician is a good friend of mine so I know he will steer me in the right direction when it comes to my heating and cooling.
