DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

A simple remodeling of a current fireplace can be achieved by a skilled do-it-yourselfer, but if any construction work is required there is the possibility of encountering structural issues that have to be addressed professionally. You may be lucky when revealing your old fireplace and find out that you need little more than a decent chimney sweep and a quick clean up of the hearth in order to get your fire roaring. However, a blocked flue and crumbling brickwork that calls for structural reinforcement is what you're more likely to discover.

An incorrectly fitted fireplace can cause severe fire risk and respiratory health problems and, as such, should only be put in by a specialist fireplace installer in Bottesford with the experience and knowledge to do the work safely. According to the Building Regulations, a room that has a fireplace installed in it must have ample airflow and oxygen for the fire to burn safely. A deficiency of oxygen means the fire will not burn well, and an accumulation of carbon monoxide fumes could occur, which can lead to death.

It could be necessary to install airflow vents in walls and floors to allow the fireplace to receive ample oxygen to burn effectively and safely at all times. Condensed air can frequently get trapped inside unused chimney flues which may also need to have air vents installed, to prevent problems with damp inside the chimney breast.

BEFORE WORK COMMENCES

Chimney breasts are notorious for the quantity of soot and dirt that can accumulate inside them, so when you go through the process of opening up a fireplace you should expect it to be a rather messy affair. Even with dust sheets for your furniture, the risk of damage from soot and dust is still possible and it is advised to remove your carpets and furniture before any fireplace renovation work commences. If you're installing a fireplace as part of a larger renovation project then it should be one of the initial things to be completed once you have brought the room back to bare walls and floors. This should prevent damage to other stages of your remodelling project (i.e. fresh plasterwork or paint on walls), by soot and other chimney dust that's discharged.

CONSTRUCTION & STRUCTURAL WORK

Once you have exposed your old fireplace you'll have a better understanding of the work that is required, and also be able to sweep the chimney and clear out any parts of hearth that remains in place. One of the first items on your agenda should be to get in touch with a proper chimney sweep who operates in and around Bottesford. They'll be willing to offer expert advice on the chimney and flue after sweeping, regarding the condition of the chimney and whether it is advisable to replace the existing flue liner.

After a chimney sweep's examination it may be necessary to strengthen the chimney breast or install a new flue liner as demanded by Part J of the Building Regulations. A competent tradesman who is familiar with the Building Regulations and good construction practices will need to carry out this work.

If the size of the original fireplace is greater than your needs, a supporting concrete lintel will have to be put in. When your lintel is safely in position you may now get on with the installation, renovation and upgrade of the fireplace hearth. In earlier times the hearth would be sunken into the floor, but the current building regulations demand that it's raised above floor level. Pre-made options from slate, marble or concrete are available on the market to accomplish this, or your fireplace builder in Bottesford might be able to offer you a bespoke, tailor-made hearth to fit in with your room style.

Sitting in front of the heat of a fireplace, revives many cherished memories for lots of folks. Having a fireplace has its perks but there are a couple of issues that could affect its usefulness. With the cost of energy rising year after year, your fireplace needs to give out heat in a very cost-effective way. While having a fire going in a fireplace keeps the people near to it cosy, it actually removes warm air from the rest of the space, causing your heater to work harder.

Open Fireplaces Bottesford

Many householders in Bottesford who have fireplaces do not realise how it can affect heating costs. As opposed to preserving resources, and heating costs, it is typically adding hundreds of pounds of energy expense. Nevertheless, there are a number of procedures that you can follow that can easily turn your budget busting fireplace into something a bit more efficient. Just about all you need to do is only four simple things boost the performance of your fireplace. Each of these should make your fireplace very affordable and more efficient.

The first point is to swap your current fireplace damper with a top sealing damper. This kind of damper is positioned at the top of your chimney and helps to stop rain from entering. It will keep the internal air from getting out, and the outside air from entering, and works in hot weather or cold. The product is straightforward to fit, and can be purchased on the web. Next, you should install a fire-back in the rear part of your fireplace. This is a cast iron plate that is designed to add to the room decor, while shielding the back wall from being damaged by the heat. The fire-back will take the heat from a fire, and radiates the heat back towards the room, increasing the overall efficiency of the fireplace.

Another way to save money is by using a fireplace fan/heater, which heats the space by pulling the air into a heat chamber and returning the air back into the room. These devices are set up as closed systems to make sure they do not emit any smoke, but they are effective in warming your home. Last but not least, you can fit glass doors which will likely be the costliest. If you do your research, you can find glass doors at a decent price and fit them yourself. Such doors create a buffer between your living space and the hearth, not only stopping the heat from escaping, but also providing protection.

Every one of these suggestions are easy to implement, and the required products can be easily sourced online. Retain your current fireplace and decrease heating costs by making it more efficient.
