Many of the homes and condos in the Galena Territories were built with factory-built or zero-clearance fireplaces, and it’s getting to be time for these appliances to be upgraded to newer, more efficient models. Our technicians regularly perform fireplace upgrades in the Galena Territories to give residents new units with high efficiency and peak performance. When you visit us, ask our friendly staff about the differences among the various types of fireplaces so you can get one that’s perfect for your home.
Modern heating stoves are very popular in Galena and surrounding cities and towns. Stoves run on a variety of fuels such as wood, gas, pellets and electricity. Today’s wood stoves are more efficient than their predecessors, bringing comforting heat and having the ability to keep operating during a power outage. Gas stoves are ultra-convenient and clean-burning with high efficiency ratings. Pellet stoves can create heat for up to 36 hours. Electric stoves are as simple as turning on an electric heater, but they provide considerably more warmth. If you see our trucks along Spring St. (Hwy. 84), S. Bench St., N. Water St., Blackjack Road, Park Ave., or any other streets and roads in Galena, we’re likely on our way to deliver a brand-new heating appliance to another satisfied customer.
Many homeowners in Galena have traditional masonry fireplaces, which are nice to look at but don’t provide a lot of heat. The solution is a new fireplace insert. These units are pre-built to a specific size and fit right into the opening of a masonry fireplace. Fireplace inserts are far more efficient than masonry fireplaces and come in many elegant designs to perfectly match any room’s décor.
An outdoor boiler can be an economical heating solution for many homeowners. Boilers can heat homes as well as outbuildings such as shops, garages and barns. Fueled by wood, these units burn clean with low emissions, making them friendly to the environment. When you visit Dubuque Fireplace & Patio, ask about how a new outdoor boiler might be ideal for your home-heating needs.

Chimney Service – Cleaning, Inspection, Chimney Sweep
We serve residents of Galena and neighboring communities with expert chimney cleaning and inspection. The National Fireplace Institute and the National Fire Protection Association both recommend annual chimney cleaning to ensure that the system is safe and fully operational. Inspections are important because they often turn up minor issues that easily can be remedied before they turn into expensive problems to fix. The best time to schedule an annual chimney cleaning and inspection is in the spring and summer, before the cold weather sets in.
Chimney Repairs – Masonry, Rebuilds, Liners, Chase Tops, Chimney Caps
Many things can affect how chimneys operate. Damage and deterioration from rain, snow and extreme temperatures is common over time. The outdoor elements can cause cracking in the bricks and mortar of a chimney, allowing water to get into the building materials and cause further damage. Chimney liners need to be inspected periodically and replaced if they’re showing signs of decomposition. The same with chase tops, flashing and chimney caps. Each part of a chimney system is there for a reason – which boils down to keeping your family and your home safe. Our technicians perform all manner of chimney repair and rebuilding services throughout the Galena region.
