Cozy up to a Beautiful Fireplace This Holiday Season

South Dakota winter is right around the corner, and nothing brings a family together quite like a night around the fireplace! Imagine hosting game nights or a Christmas gathering in the warmth of your home with a beautiful glow from one of many fireplace options. From traditional natural gas or electric fireplaces to alternative fueled fireplaces like wood, corn or pellet, Fireplace Professionals has something for everyone. In the late ’70s, the Leggett family began their journey in the fireplace business. According to general manager Tony Leggett, his parents saw a need in the community that needed to be met, and officially launched Fireplace Professionals in 1981.

Today, the business is still family-run and focused on quality products that bring customers closer together with their friends and family through the coziness of a trustworthy product. “Ultimately, that is what it comes down to. We want to be there to provide each client and family with a new gathering space for their home,” Tony says. Tony explains, “Fireplaces are an amenity that nullifies the chill and serves as an extra source to heat the home, but it also serves as a light source or gathering area.” Gathering for the holidays is always something to look forward to, but one of the downsides of living in the Midwest is the temperatures endured during the winter.

Avoid the freeze this winter and walk around the large indoor and outdoor showroom at Fireplace Professionals. Get a glimpse and feel the toasty temperatures from a large selection of products that could bring additional warmth to your home just in time for the holiday season. Tony says, “Everyone is welcome, and we always have a blaze rolling at the store.”

Fortunately, gas fireplaces are surprisingly low maintenance by design. It is recommended to get a tune-up service which cleans the glass, ensures a debris-free vent cap and cleans out the inside so that you don’t have dust or a smell when you first turn it on for the season. Another suggestion is to make sure you give the fireplace a test run before it gets too cold. If you have a wood or pellet stove, the biggest thing to prepare before the winter is the chimney. “Especially if you use your fireplace habitually during the winter, you need to have your chimney serviced at least once a year,” Tony adds.
