At Dubuque Fireplace and Patio, we can do custom stone masonry work or simply install a factory-built model for you. While traditional stone masonry fireplaces are still common, over 75 percent of fireplaces installed every year are manufactured and sent to the building site rather than built in as a traditional brick and mortar fireplace. Either way, say goodbye to cold nights and warm up to your very own, beautiful and efficient wood-burning fireplace.
Today’s wood-burning fireplaces are highly efficient and not only provide a beautiful centerpiece to any room, but they can also help you save on your heating bill. The Environmental Protection Agency has mandated the implementation of strict regulations for manufacturers and as a result, modern appliances are made much more efficiently. For a beautiful as well as functional fireplace, a high-efficiency fireplace may be the perfect choice for you. These high quality appliances are built to last and made for heating large areas. With a high-efficiency fireplace, many models can heat an entire house and some up to 3,500 square feet.
Zero-Clearance Wood Fireplaces
Zero-clearance models are fireplaces that have been manufactured in a factory. The firebox is surrounded by an insulated shell that can be built into a framed wall, thus the term "zero clearance". Advantages include installation flexibility, they can be installed quickly and in many places in a home where a masonry fireplace would be impractical. Zero clearance fireplaces are tested by the manufacturer and safety organizations so performance and other specifications are known, unlike a masonry fireplace.
Factory Built Wood Burning Fireplaces
Factory built wood burning fireplaces come in all sorts of shapes and sizes to fit in every room of your home. One of the advantages of zero-clearance fireplaces is that they can be added to existing homes with no major structural modifications.
Factory-built fireplaces are also quite affordable. The installation requires only a lightweight, stainless steel chimney that is very safe and secure. It does not require any additional structural support. Because there are fewer requirements when installing a factory-built appliance, they can easily be added to almost any room, unlike the more expensive alternative of a built-in masonry fireplace. After the pre-fabricated fireplace is installed, any type of design can be added on to the front, to complete the final “look” of the fireplace.
