Tips For Using Your New Fireplace

At Henges Insulation & Fireplaces we carry a large variety of fireplaces (direct vent, B-vent, wood burning, outdoor and electric) and wood burning stoves to suit any building or home. We professionally install Majestic fireplaces, Vermont Castings fireplaces and stoves, and Country Flame flex fuel stoves and wood burning fireplaces. Our field technicians not only install fireplaces, they have the knowledge and experience to diagnose and perform fireplace repairs and tune-ups on nearly any unit.

Tips For Using Your New Fireplace

Tips For Using Your New Fireplace

  • Remove the plastic from trim parts before turning the new fireplace ON.
  • It is normal for fireplaces fabricated of steel to give off some expansion and/or contraction noises during the start up or cool down cycle. Similar noises are found with your furnace heat exchanger or car engine.
  • It is not unusual for your gas fireplace to give off some odor the first time it is burned.  This is due to the curing of the paint and any undetected oil from the manufacturing process.
  • Please ensure that your room is well-ventilated – open all windows.
  • Burn your fireplace for at least 10 hours the first time you use it.  If the optional fan kit has been installed, place the fan switch in the “OFF” position during this time.  This will help minimize odors in future use.

Design a Stylish Fireplace

Fireplaces don’t just provide warmth during cold weather. Fireplaces are also the focal point of any room. Better Homes & Gardens offers a few good ideas for designing a stylish fireplace to match your decor and fit your space:

  • Cast-stone is an economical alternative to a real stone fireplace surround.
  • Brick doesn’t have to be boring. Try an arched brick fireplace surround.
  • Stacked stone creates a natural feel and textural interest.
  • Paint the fireplace surround the same color as the mantel and walls for a clean look.
  • Create architectural interest with a dramatic floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace facade. Save money by using cultured stone.
  • Add glam with shiny mirror glass details around the fireplace.

Get more design ideas for stylish fireplaces, and tell us about how you have decorated the area around your fireplace by leaving a comment.

Flex Fuel Fireplace Success Story

Read how one family’s quest to reduce their heating bills lead them to purchase an eco-friendly Countryside flex fuel fireplace insert. The transition to flex fuel couldn’t have been easier.

 

Flex Fuel Fireplace:

  • The fireplace insert easily fit inside their existing fireplace.
  • It was able to be set up with a direct-vent.
  • It burns a variety of fuels, including corn, wood pellets, and biomass.
  • It’s eligible for a $1,500 energy tax credit.

Before getting the flex fuel fireplace insert installed, the homeowners covered the area where it was to be located with fire-safe flooring and added the new appliance to their homeowner’s insurance for just $50. Plus, they were able to select a color and style for their flex fuel fireplace insert that fit their home’s decor.

Fireplace inserts are also available in gas and wood-burning models and are an easy way to improve energy efficiency without remodeling because they fit into existing fireplaces. Are you paying too much for heating fuels? Contact Henges Insulation & Fireplaces for more information about flex-fuel fireplace inserts.
