The quality of life in Fairbanks, Alaska is one of America’s best kept secrets. Everything you can imagine is available, but you won’t be fighting hours of rush hour traffic, heavy pollution or enduring urban blight. Instead, you’ll have access to some of the most incredible scenery anywhere in the world!
By now, someone might be saying, “Yeah, it’s beautiful there, but have you noticed the lack of sunshine through the winter?” Yep. It’s true. Fairbanks lends a whole new meaning to long winter days but, with a proper fireplace, your home will be as inviting a Currier and Ives painting.
The choices for a fireplace have never been better! Whether you choose wood, gas, propane or an oil fireplace, the warmth and light it provides will light your soul as well as warm your home.
Once you have determined the fuel for your stove, you still have some decisions to make. Do you want a stove or a fireplace? Do you want it built-in or free standing? Whatever you choose, be sure to consider the availability for each fuel source before you make your purchase. If you are new to the area, be sure to ask your neighbors what worked for them. They have a wealth of information that can save you both time and money.
The Winter weather in Fairbanks can be a bit of a challenge, but the homes are well suited to the climate and having an alternative heating source like a wood burning stove or the right gas fireplace can help ensure that you not only survive the long winter, you’ll thrive!
