Prefabricated (prefab) fireplaces offer the appearance and ambient heat of a traditional masonry fireplace but are premanufactured before technicians install them in homes. Prefab fireplace inserts require precise installation to ensure they are as safe for operation as possible. Smoke Alert Home Fire Safety provides professional fireplace insert installation services so that you can enjoy a warm fire with peace of mind.
Prefabricated Fireplace Installation
A prefabricated fireplace is a manufactured insert that fits into your home, providing warmth and a beautiful focal point. People may refer to a prefab fireplace as a factory-built or zero-clearance fireplace, and this manufactured metal firebox operates and looks like a traditional masonry fireplace. Wood or gas logs burn inside the firebox, and smoke and gases exit through a metal liner that runs through your home’s chimney.
Proper installation is crucial for a fireplace insert’s operation and efficiency. Professional installers address the following factors during installation:
- Fireplace insert frame: Placing a prefab fireplace too close to its wooden frame can ignite the frame and start a fire if the insert becomes too hot. A certified installer knows how to safely measure and place a fireplace insert so that it has adequate space, preventing fire hazards.
- Attic insulation: Insulation must be a safe distance from the fireplace’s chimney pipe if it runs through the attic.
- Floor and subfloor protection: The space in front of the insert or the hearth extension typically requires a material with the proper R-value to protect the subfloor. An experienced installer uses the best material to protect your floor from overheating.
