There are a few important things to consider before you begin any work, if you are going to create an efficient, attractive and safe fireplace in your property.

Planning permission may also be necessary before work begins if your home is listed or in a conservation area.

PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

A simple restoration of an existing fireplace can probably be executed by a keen DIY person, but if any building work is required there's a chance of running into structural problems that need to be dealt with professionally. If you are fortunate when you expose a stopped up fireplace you might find a decent chimney breast, lintel and hearth that needs nothing other than the advice and services of a chimney sweep to get it ready for use. However, what you'll most likely discover is an area of crumbling, old bricks that conceals problems such as a lintel that needs to be replaced or a stopped up chimney.

Because of the severe fire risk and health issues that can be caused by an improperly installed or renovated fireplace, it is best to avail yourself of the knowledge and experience of a skilled fireplace fitter in Carnoustie. Airflow must be adequate in any room which has a fireplace; in fact it's a key requirement of the Building Regulations (Part J) that this is so. Not enough oxygen means the fire will not burn effectively, and an accumulation of carbon monoxide fumes could occur, which can cause death.

It may be necessary to install airflow vents in floors and walls to allow the fireplace to receive enough oxygen to burn efficiently and safely at all times. Blocked off and unused chimney flues may also have to have air vents installed as they can sometimes trap moist air causing damp to occur inside the chimney breast.

BEFORE WORK COMMENCES

It is amazing just how much dust and soot can build up inside an old fireplace and you won't know precisely what is there until you proceed to open it up. Even with coverings for your furniture, the likelihood of impairment from soot and dust is still possible and it is advised to remove your furniture, rugs and carpets before any fireplace restoration work begins. If you're installing a fireplace as part of a larger restoration project then it should be one of the first things to be worked on once you have taken the room back to its bare floors and walls. This avoids any discolouring damage to any restored work you've already finished.

STRUCTURAL & CONSTRUCTION WORK

Now that you can see the opening of your fireplace it is time to sweep and clean the hearth and chimney and figure out what can be restored. Contacting a proper chimney sweep to clean your chimney is one of the initial items on your agenda. They will not only make sure your chimney and flue are clean, but they can also assess the condition of the chimney and flue liner and offer advice if you need to replace any part of the chimney and flue.

Flue Linings

A vital addition to your chimney system, a chimney liner or flu liner improves the safety of your chimney while allowing it to function more effectively than it otherwise would. With the purpose of carrying smoke and fumes safely to the outside of a property, flue liners are ducts made of ceramic material, clay or metal that are installed inside chimneys. Subject to their age and condition, older chimneys in Carnoustie might have to be relined, or may not have a lining at all.

Harmful fumes and gases are produced by the burning of fires and these gases can easily eat away at the flue lining of your fireplace. While it's being cleaned, get the chimney sweep or fireplace specialist to assess your flue lining for any damage or risks of it failing in the future. If there is damage, those dangerous gases may seep into your home rather than being properly vented outdoors. There's likewise the risk of fires in the property because a broken flue lining can allow extreme heat to penetrate the chimney structure.

How To Retain Your Fireplace And Lower Your Heating Bills

Sparked by worries about the environment, the iconic fireplace has lost some of its appeal, although it is still a favourite with many homeowners in Carnoustie. The natural warmth of a fireplace invokes special recollections for those who have them. There are lots of benefits to having a fireplace although there are some negative aspects that might need to be taken care of. With the cost of energy rising each year, your fireplace must give out heat in a very cost-effective way. Whilst having a fire blazing in a fireplace keeps the people close to it cosy, it actually removes warm air from the rest of the area, causing your heater to work harder. The hearth damper is expected to prevent cold air from entering your home when you haven't got a fire going in the fireplace. However, dampers are generally not terribly successful seals, consequently all the warm air escapes and enables cold air to come into the room.

Open Fireplaces Carnoustie

Many householders in Carnoustie with a fireplace don't understand how it can affect the cost of heating. As opposed to saving resources, and heating costs, it's usually adding 100s of pounds of energy expense. But it is not all bad news as there are ways to make your fireplace more cost-effective. All you need to do is only 4 fundamental things to fix your fireplace. All of these is going to make your fireplace very cost effective and more efficient.

The first step is to take away your current damper and swap it for a new top sealing damper. A top sealing damper is set up at the top end of your chimney that also behaves the same as a storm door. The top sealing damper will keep the air in the property from leaking out and will work very well in warm and cold weather conditions. It does not take much time to install and you can find one online. Another thing you can do is install a fire-back in the back of your fireplace. It's produced from cast iron and it is used to enhance the overall look of your fireplace whilst protecting the back wall from fire damage. The fire-back also absorbs heat right from the fire and sends it back inside, making the fireplace more effective.

The next thing that can help is a fireplace heater, which heats the room air that's being circulated through an internal chamber, and sends it back inside the room. These fireplace heaters are set up as closed systems so they don't give off any smoke, but they are effective in keeping your house warm. Last but not least, it is possible to install glass doors which will likely be the most costly option. If you do your groundwork, you can find glass doors at a reasonable price and mount them yourself. Such glass doors form a buffer between the chimney and living space, not only making the area less for the fire to heat, but also offering protection to the inhabitants.

Every one of these suggestions are simple to do, and the products can be easily found online. Just do your best to make sure your fireplace is efficient and see your heating bill go down.
