12 Nov How to Re-Do a Fireplace
Let’s face it. Despite how special they may feel to us, many of the beautiful, old wood-burning fireplaces we have in our homes can have a severe lack of safety and efficiency. With the upkeep and maintenance required of these fireplaces being very rigorous, it is no wonder many people leave them abandoned in their homes. If you are still in love with your traditional wood-burning fireplace, but want something new and efficient, a direct vent gas fireplace insert could do just the trick. Though it is always an options to tear down the existing unit and rebuild, by utilizing a gas burning fireplace insert, you can best mimic your wood burning fireplace’s original charm and feel. Here are some tips on getting started in your home.
First, you are going to want to make sure your chimney has enough structural rigidity to remain in use. You can do this by having it inspected for any faults that could potentially be detrimental. The direct vent gas fireplace insert will allow air to vent directly through the chimney itself, helping you further preserve the original look.
Once you are cleared to use the original fireplace chimney, the gas burning fireplace insert can be installed and used in your home seamlessly. At Kozy Heat, we offer an array of gas burning fireplace inserts in various designs and styles. Help us tailer fit a fireplace perfect for your space.
