Free Bolsover Fireplace Installation Quotes

There are some vital considerations you must think of before you start any work, in order to create a safe, attractive and efficient fireplace in your house. All work must abide by Part J of the Building Regulations, which covers the construction and installation of hearths, flue linings, chimney breasts and fireplaces of any combustible appliance. Planning permission may also have to be sought before work commences if your home is in a conservation area or is a listed building.

DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

You may be capable of doing some of the work in restoring a pre-existing fireplace if you've got the skills needed, however there is always a problem in finding structural and safety issues that need to be resolved professionally. If you're fortunate when you open up a stopped up fireplace you might find a decent hearth, chimney breast and lintel that needs nothing other than the advice and services of a chimney sweep to get it ready for a fire once more. What's more typical however is a patch of old, crumbling brickwork that conceals a blocked flue, and also requires some form of structural modification before it can be safely used.

An incorrectly installed fireplace can cause significant respiratory health problems and fire risk and should only be put in by a specialist fireplace installer in Bolsover with the experience and knowledge to do the work safely. A key part of the Building Regulations for fireplaces is that sufficient oxygen is available in a room for a fire to burn efficiently and properly. If the airflow is not good enough then it's quite possible that a fire will burn inefficiently and cause a build-up of carbon monoxide fumes, which can be deadly.

It may be necessary to install airflow vents in walls and floors to enable the fireplace to get sufficient oxygen to burn effectively and safely all the time. To prevent condensed air from becoming trapped in unused or blocked off chimney flues and causing damp spots and staining, vents might need to be installed by the fireplace installation team to improve the airflow.

BEFORE WORK STARTS

It's surprising just how much dust and soot can build up inside an old fireplace and chimney and you'll not know exactly what is there until you proceed to open it up. Even with coverings for your home furnishings, the likelihood of impairment from soot and grime is still likely and it's advisable to remove your belongings and any woven materials before any fireplace renovation work commences. If you're installing a fireplace as part of an overall home renovation project then it should be one of the first things to be worked on once you've taken the room back to bare walls and floors. This stops any discolouring damage to any restored work you have already completed.

STRUCTURAL & CONSTRUCTION WORK

Sitting in front of the heat of a fireplace, revives many precious memories for lots of folks. The fireplace has numerous benefits for your property, but there are a couple of important drawbacks that need to be fixed. With energy costs increasing year on year, your fireplace must give out heat in a cost-effective way.

Next, you will need to have a fire-back in the rear section of your fireplace.

The fire-back absorbs the heat from a fire, and sends it back towards the room, increasing the efficiency of the fireplace.

Flues

Enabling your chimney to perform a great deal more effectively, a chimney or flue liner is a crucial addition to the chimney system on your house. Installed inside chimneys to carry toxic fumes outside, flue liners are conduits manufactured from clay, ceramic material or metal. Depending on their condition and age, older chimneys in Bolsover might need to be re-lined, or might not be fitted with a lining at all.

The dangerous gases and fumes which are generated when you burn a fire can damage your fireplace's flue lining. While it is being cleaned, get the sweep or fireplace specialist to examine your flue lining for any impairment or prospects of it deteriorating in the foreseeable future. You have to stop those toxic gases from seeping into your home's living space, which is what can take place when a flue lining is impaired. There is an additional risk with busted flue liners, in that they can allow extreme heat to penetrate the chimney's structure, which might lead to fires.
