If you think that you might be in the market for a new fireplace system this year for your home, then you need to go ahead and get the order in.
There have been a lot of supply chain interruptions over the past couple of years and so all of the fireplace parts and components are not readily available like they usually are! It’s really been an issue for fireplace suppliers all over the place around here, believe it or not.
I know that a lot of people who have been thinking about getting a new fireplace or fireplace insert for this year haven’t been able to find the one that they want because it’s just been too hard to get the supplies. The local fireplace dealer here in our town mentioned this to me a couple of weeks ago when I was in there buying some new fireplace tools for our gas log fireplace. He said that he didn’t know what he was going to do during the winter with all of these issues going on. I felt bad for him because I understand how all of this supply chain interruptions can really mess with a small business. I don’t personally have any stake in this particular thing for this year, since I already have all of my fireplace supplies ready for this winter, but I do feel bad for the people who don’t have their fireplaces ready for the cold temperatures that are coming our way soon. So take my advice. If you want a fireplace this year, get your order in right away.
