Choosing the Right Fireplace for Your Needs
The traditional fireplace that most homeowners immediately picture when they hear the phrase is, of course, the wood–burning fireplace. We can definitely install, repair, or replace a wood–burning fireplace for you. Just keep in mind that it is a major undertaking, and you cannot afford to cut corners. You should also keep in mind the responsibilities that come with owning and operating this type of fireplace.
You are going to be responsible for procuring and splitting wood, and cleaning out the fireplace in the morning when your fire is extinguished. You need to work with a reputable chimney sweep to keep your fireplace in safe working condition. If you think you’d like to use a fireplace in your Fairfield home, but you want to simplify the process, you may want to consider the use of a gas fireplace.
We Install Gas and Traditional Fireplaces
Installing both gas– and wood–burning fireplaces comes with different challenges. A traditional fireplace must be well–designed and feature various components, such as the flue, in order to promote a safe operation and efficient burning. From the brickwork to the ensuring that the fireplace doesn’t leak water during storms, it’s a complex job.
A gas fireplace, on the other hand, must burn natural gas safely, and it should be properly sized to act as a supplemental heat source, not just as a visually appealing set piece. There is a lot to consider, but our fireplace professionals are always ready and willing to help. If you have any questions, or if you’d like to use a gas log insert in place of your old wood–burning fireplace, we’re the technicians to trust.
