Reinstating a Fireplace
I f you have discovered an old fireplace in your home, or have one that hasn't been used in many years, and you are considering reinstating it and having a new fire or stove fitted, then there are a few things you need to be aware of before you start using your new appliance to heat your home.
Getting the inside of the chimney checked to ensure there is no damage or loose debris could save your life. Cracks in your chimney can allow smoke and carbon monoxide to enter your rooms, whereas, loose debris can catch fire.
At Phoenix Fireplaces we take care of all of this for you, we will need to visit your home to inspect the size of your chimney to ensure your new fireplace or stove will fit correctly, we also check for ventilation and arrange for a chimney sweep to do an internal inspection, where needed, and sweep the chimney before we go ahead with the installation.
