When most people think of a fireplace, they think of a big, sturdy brick structure that is built into one’s home. These are known as masonry fireplaces and they add a timeless look and pleasing aesthetic to homes everywhere. Yet, if you’re thinking of putting a new fireplace system in your home, masonry options may not be the best option!
For something that requires less installation time, offers high-quality functionality, and won’t break the bank, consider adding a prefabricated fireplace to your home! These units are becoming more and more popular as homeowners discover how visually pleasing and highly efficient these models are. And they come in a wide variety of styles, so you’ll be able to find the perfect fit for your home – no matter what!
Prefab fireplaces come as one whole unit and must be installed exactly as the manufacturer instructed. It’s best to hire a CSIA-certified sweep (like the staff at A-1 Chimney Specialist) to get the job done right. That way, you can rest easy all year long, knowing your home and family are staying as protected as possible.
The best part is, these units are always put through various testing processes. Because of this, you know you’re investing in a product that will bring years of safe, family-friendly entertainment to your home.
Yes! No matter what type of fireplace system you have in your home, a yearly inspection is always a necessary step for maintaining safety and efficiency with every passing season. Prefabricated fireplaces are known for fitting in great in anyone’s home and have gone through many tests before being sold and manufactured, but that doesn’t mean they can’t break down or face wear and tear. Always play it safe – schedule your next inspection today!
Also, keep in mind that prefabricated fireplaces are just as vulnerable to chimney fires as any other system. A chimney fire will damage your unit significantly and put your home and family in a dangerous situation if not properly addressed. Get that inspection scheduled today.
