Do you sometimes feel that your home’s aesthetics is lacking something? Do you wish you had more heating options available? If so, a new fireplace and chimney is the perfect addition to your home. A new fireplace and chimney can bring a cozy, inviting look to your home while also supplying your living areas with adequate amount of heat. Whether you want a new hearth in your master bedroom, a new wood stove in your basement, or wherever, our masonry experts at Old Smokey’s can make it happen for you. However, before making the addition of a new chimney in your home, there are a couple of things that need to be considered.

Choosing a fuel

However, wood and gas burning fireplaces require ventilation such as a flue and chimney. Knowing the type of fuel you want to use allow us to determine the type of liner we install. Knowing how much heat output you desire can also help us determine a fuel type, the liner type, and chimney size that is right for your home.
