We Work Closely with You
Whenever you’re looking for a new manufactured fireplace, fireplace insert, heating stove or gas log set, we’ll consult with you before the purchase. This is important because you’ll want to make certain decisions and know what to expect after the job is finished.
Manufactured fireplaces must be set into an appropriate wall in your home. This means a section of the wall will be removed in order to fit the fireplace. Vented gas fireplaces draft through a pipe that extends to the outside of the home. Wood fireplaces require the building of a vent housing, or “chase.” Electric models require no venting.
Gas Log Sets:
Aside from choosing a gas log set style and features that will best accent your home, you need to know how the components basically work and how to clean and maintain them.
We’ll also help you work through all this and more, regardless of the type of appliance you’re considering.
When you’ve decided on the ideal new fireplace, stove or insert for your home, then it’s time for us to get down to work.
A lot more than you may realize goes into a Fireplace and Stove Installation project.
Stoves can be placed in various areas within a home. The size of the stove can be a factor, particularly in smaller rooms with many furnishings and other objects. Both gas and wood stoves need an appropriate way to run the vent pipe for drafting.
A fireplace insert goes into the firebox of a masonry fireplace. You’ll need to decide if you want to continue burning wood, or if switching to gas will be more to your taste. Each fuel type has unique operating factors and maintenance needs.
The appliance must be placed and set up according to the detailed instructions provided by the manufacturer.
Just as important is adherence to the numerous state and local fire safety and building codes. Because hefty fines can result from improper installation. Whenever Chimney Sweep Inc. does the job, all code requirements will be met.
