Fireplaces are one of the most requested and sought after home features in real estate. In addition to adding value to your home, a new fireplace has the ability to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, unlike any other feature or appliance.
If you’re replacing an aging fireplace or preparing to add a new heating appliance to your home, the cost of the new unit alone can be daunting; it can be tempting to then choose whatever installation package is least expensive – or attempt to do it yourself. However, it is important to only have fireplaces installed by certified and trained professionals. Doing this ensures the new fireplace is installed correctly and can burn safely and efficiently.
Why Choose a Professional for Installation
Choosing a new fireplace can be a difficult decision – and a major investment in your home’s value. Between choices for fuel sources, heat output, and even finish and style details, finding the perfect heating appliance can take time and research. In order to both protect and get the most out of your new fireplace, make sure to choose a chimney professional for installation.
Fireplaces and chimneys can look deceptively simple; however, they are actually complex systems comprised of a number of different parts and components. In order for your fireplace to burn as safely and efficiently as possible, these components must all be properly installed. A difference of just a few inches – or in gas fireplaces, the difference of just a few millimeters – can create safety issues, minimize efficiency, and cause loss of heat.
While it can be tempting to go with an inexpensive company – or attempt to install it yourself – as a way to save money, many installers lack the training and experience necessary to safely and correctly install a new fireplace unit. Instead, trust a chimney professional certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America. Certified chimney sweeps have the training and education necessary to properly install new fireplace units. If you previously had a fireplace installed by someone else, a certified sweep can also inspect the fireplace to ensure it is burning safely and efficiently.
