You’re Going To Love Your New Factory-Built Wood Or Gas Fireplace!
Is it time to treat yourself? Why not finally put in that fireplace you’ve always dreamed of having in your master bedroom suite, living room, bathroom, or family room? With today’s factory-built fireplaces, you have more installation options than ever before, and you can get beautiful natural stone and masonry looks without the costs and logistics.
What’s there to love about a factory-built fireplace? We’re glad you asked…
Reliable Performance, Safety & Efficiency
When you have a masonry fireplace built in your home, all kinds of factors can determine the efficiency, safety, and overall performance and longevity of the fireplace system — like the design, the construction, and the skill and knowledge of the team building it. But when you choose a factory-built fireplace, you don’t have to worry about any of that.
In fact, factory-built fireplaces are built just as their name implies, in factory, and tested for safety, efficiency, and performance. All you have to do is make sure the new system is installed by an experienced Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) -certified professional, and you’ll know your fireplace will perform at the incredible efficiency ratings and safety levels guaranteed by the manufacturer. There’s no room for discrepancies — you get exactly what was promised.
But guaranteed performance, efficiency, and safety aren’t the only benefits of a new factory-built fireplace.
Lower Material & Labor Costs & More Installation Options
Masonry fireplaces and chimneys can cost a great deal of money in terms of labor and materials. Because they’re built on site, brick by brick, stone by stone, or tile by tile, they can take a lot of man hours to construct, and the natural materials used can be quite costly. Likewise, these materials can be incredibly heavy and require a lot of space and footing.
But today’s factory-built fireplaces are crafted out of materials that authentically resemble many naturally occurring materials, including slate, tile, stone, marble, and brick. While it’s hard to tell the difference in terms of looks, you can definitely tell the difference in weight and cost. The materials used to construct prefab fireplaces are lightweight, and since these fireplaces are simply installed, you have more options in regards to where you put it and how quickly you get to enjoy it. And because you won’t be spending so much money on labor and materials, you’ll be able to enjoy your fireplace even more.
Wood Or Gas — Which Is Right For You?
So now that we’ve covered some of the main reasons you’ll love a factory-built fireplace, it’s time to consider fuel types. Is wood better for your needs or gas? Here are some of the top perks of each:
- Wood — Wood is a natural choice for many because they love the whole experience of building a fire and all the crackles, pops, and dancing flames that go along with it. Plus, wood is a renewable resource that’s easy to come by, easy to season, and easy to store. And since wood fireplaces don’t rely on any electricity to heat your home, you can enjoy the warmth of the fireplace when you need it most — like during a power outage in the middle of winter!
- Gas — Gas is a great choice for homeowners who are always on the go and just like to enjoy the good life. The fire can be started and stopped with a button or a switch (or even a remote control), and the clean-up and maintenance involved is virtually non-existent. And if you’re worried about the log set in the fireplace looking bulky and fake, don’t be. Modern log sets are crafted from real wood log molds and hand-painted for the ultimate in realism.
No matter which fuel type or fireplace you choose, you’ll be happy to know that all of our factory-built fireplaces have these qualities:
- highly efficient
- easy to use
- easy to maintain
