While fireplaces accentuate the largeness of a room, the rooms do not all come in one size. For smaller rooms, like a child's bedroom, fireplaces were sometimes built in the corner of the room to exploit the space there. In fact, it is now easier to install a new fire place in the corner of a room because the fireplace walls could be tapered exactly just so in order to reflect the heat more efficiently into the room.
Many people love the warmth and beauty of a fireplace. With rising heating costs, homeowners are constantly looking for ways to reduce the cost of heating their home. This is especially prevalent in old large homes and farmhouses. One problem that homeowners noticed with their old fireplace was that it just did not heat the entire room or home. Fireplace blowers are a relatively inexpensive way to help reduce those costs.
