When installing a fireplace insert, it is important to verify that the chimney system is designed or approved for use with your specific insert. Otherwise, problems of incompatibility arise as when inserts are installed in factory-built fireplaces.
Without the inspection of a professional, you may be putting yourself at high-risk for a fire or, at the very least, you may have an inefficient appliance. When we evaluate a chimney system in preparation for an insert, we use a digital camera to check for size and condition compatibility.
When having your fireplace installed, there are several important questions to consider:
- Is the area able to support the weight of the fireplace I am planning to design/install?
- Is there enough distance from combustibles?
- What type of fuel do I want my fireplace to burn?
- Is my chimney system compatible with the type of fuel I want to burn?
When a White Glove professional comes to discuss your fireplace design, you can be sure that every safety and design element will be carefully investigated prior to installation. We believe in proper planning, so that we aren’t scrambling to fix problems down the line.
There are several factors to consider when having your stove installed, such as placement and how much heat you require. Although stoves are portable and can be moved if need be, many stove fires are caused because of inadequate floor and wall distance/protection. When discussing your placement with a White Glove professional, you will have expert advice on placement safety as well as suggestions on stove boards and other protective measures. We will also advise you on which fuel is best for the size of the room you are trying to heat.
