DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

If you are a competent and keen DIY'er it is quite possible to restore an existing bricked-up fireplace, however the probability of running into structural issues in most cases is unfortunately high. It might be that so as to get a fire roaring once more you'll need little more than a quick clean of the hearth and a sweeping of the chimney.

There must always be airflow into a room where a fireplace is installed to ensure adequate amounts of oxygen enable the fire to burn safely. If the airflow is not sufficient then it is possible that a fire will burn inefficiently and cause a build-up of carbon monoxide, which can be deadly.

It may be necessary to fit airflow vents in floors and walls to enable the fireplace to get adequate oxygen to burn efficiently and safely at all times. To avoid condensed air from becoming trapped in unused chimney flues and creating staining and damp spots, vents may need to be fitted by the installation team to increase the airflow.
