Keeping your fireplace and chimney safer and better protected is important this time of year. As the holidays near, people light fires more and more often, as it sets a cozy and peaceful aesthetic for any gathering or event. If you want to guarantee your fireplace stays in tip-top shape and projects adequate heat, then we have solutions for you.
One way to do this is to install heat reflectors into your firebox. Learn more about this process below, then contact us right away with any questions. We’re happy to help!
The firebox is the area of your fireplace where the fires are built. This is a sturdy and strong part of your chimney’s anatomy, and it’s designed to take on a lot of heat and wear and tear, but that doesn’t mean adequate protection isn’t necessary to ensure a longer lifespan. The firebox takes on a lot, so doing what you can to help it better do its job is always a good idea.
Investing in some great products and services can make a big difference when it comes to keeping your firebox strong. Hiring us for affordable preventative maintenance now is always a better option than shelling out lots of money for expensive repairs down the line. Save yourself time, money, and hassle later in life by talking with our experts today about installing heat reflectors in your fireplace.
What Do Heat Reflectors Do?
So, one issue that many experience with their firebox is that the back wall absorbs a lot of the heat the fire produces. This results in less warmth for your home, which can lead to a lot of frustration on the part of the homeowner, especially on cooler evenings. Heat reflectors stop the firebox from absorbing so much of this warmth and, rather, pushes the high temperatures back into your living space, resulting in 20-40 percent more heat for you and your loved ones. That’s quite a difference!
These products also help protect your firebox, exposing it to less of that intense heat from the fire. Firebox repairs can take up a lot of time and they tend to cost you a lot, too, so anything that delays wear and tear is a plus! Keep your mortar in good shape and talk to us about taking this easy step today. It’s an investment you definitely won’t regret.
Are You Ready For Fall?
Installing heat reflectors is a great way to prepare for the upcoming fall and winter seasons, but there’s more that needs to be done, as well. The CSIA recommends investing in annual inspections, and if there’s excess creosote built up, then that needs to be removed, as well. Let us check things over to ensure you don’t need any repairs, sweepings, or other maintenance before kicking off your burning season.
Once we’re through, you’ll be all set and ready light fires with the peace of mind you deserve. The time to give our expert staff a call is now. We’re ready to serve!
