Add a Chimney to Your Home or Office

Have you always wanted a fireplace or stove in your home or office? Adding a new heating unit to your home or office can bring you the warmth and comfort you desire during the colder winter months. You might think adding a masonry fireplace and chimney to a room would be a big project, however, there are a lot of other, cheaper and efficient options available. At Old Smokey’s, we are experts at finding the right type of fireplace for your needs. Whether you want something that looks and feels more like a traditional fireplace, or a new stove, we got the heating appliance for you! Let us tell you the many benefits of a new prefabricated fireplace or stove.

Location

One of the best things about prefabricated fireplaces or stoves is the ability to install them almost anywhere you would like to in your home or office. Ventilation for prefabricated and stove systems are much more flexible than masonry systems, meaning we can install a chimney almost anywhere in your home.

Fuel Options

There are a number of fuel options available with both prefabricated fireplaces and stoves. Wood and gas fuel burning appliances are probably our two most popular options available. However, there are some differences between the two options. Gas appliances are generally easier to operate and maintain. This is because gas can be directly piped into your home and connected to your appliance. This means you never have to collect and store fuel the way you would have to with a wood burning appliance. Also, gas fireplaces generally start by just flipping a switch. Wood appliances on the other hand can be cheaper to operate if wood is readily available. Also, most people think the ambiance created by a real wood fire is impossible to beat.

Efficiency

All of the fireplaces and stoves we install here at Old Smokey’s are EPA qualified, meaning they emit at least 70 percent less gas than a traditional masonry fireplace. Efficiency is important to a lot of our customers. Not only is it good for the environment, but you get more bang for your buck as well. Efficient fireplaces and stoves push more heat into the home instead of out of your chimney, meaning you need to use less fuel to stay warm. An added benefit is that it also creates fewer maintenance issues for your fireplace.

Once you determine where you would like to place your new heating appliance, we can help with the design as well. This could include building a wall or mantle around the appliance. If you want to keep the look of an older style masonry fireplace, there are a large number of brick or stone tile options which can imitate a real masonry fireplace. You will ever know the difference. If you want to add warmth, comfort, and style to your home or office, look no further than Old Smokey’s.
