The Health Benefits of Having a Fireplace
There’s nothing quite like kicking off your shoes after a long day at the office or running errands and doing chores at home and plopping down in front of a warm, toasty fire. A warm hearth is especially welcomed during the colder months when being out and about can be a drain on your energy. That’s why the Melton Heating and Air Conditioning team is excited to share some of the physical and mental health benefits of owning a fireplace.
As one of the area’s leading heating and cooling experts, we know how vital remaining comfortable in your home can be, so we’ve gathered some great reasons below to consider installing your very own fireplace.
Fireplaces Help Reduce Blood Pressure
Those with high blood pressure or people who often find it hard to wind down after a long day will be happy to learn that fireplaces help reduce blood pressure. Studies have shown that a fire will calm you and lower blood pressure, helping to improve relaxation. It’s no secret that along with relaxation and reduced blood pressure comes a host of other benefits, like reduced risk of kidney and heart disease, lowered risk of stroke, and reduced eye damage due to high blood pressure.
They’re Trance-Inducing & Make Great Meditation Tools
Since the advent of fire itself, people have been using the flames as a tool to induce a trancelike relaxation. Watching the flames dance help take you to a more relaxed place, and all of your stress and daily troubles will melt away.
Fireplaces Help Empty Your Mind
Lastly, but certainly not least, having a fireplace can help empty your mind and make it easier for you to get to sleep at night. Distractions from your busy day can disappear, and you’ll be able to handle anxieties you have about the past day or the one to come.
