Frequently Asked Questions

Your fireplace is one of the most significant and hardworking features in your home, providing warmth, comfort, and ambiance. Deciding when to replace or install a new fireplace is not a straightforward decision; it hinges on various personal and home needs. Just as with family members, who each have their own unique timelines and paths, fireplaces too can have varying lifespans and needs for upgrades or replacements.

Gone are the days when a fireplace was just a source of warmth!

Choosing a new fireplace is a decision that might come around only once every couple of decades. Therefore, it's crucial to take your time, conduct thorough research, and ask plenty of questions. Nowadays, fireplaces are part of a broader system within your home, contributing not just to warmth but also to the ambiance, energy efficiency, and sometimes even the air quality of your living space.

Ultimately, the type and brand of fireplace you select are significant, yet the professionalism and quality of the company that installs, guarantees, and maintains your fireplace system are paramount. This aspect can greatly influence your satisfaction and the overall performance of your fireplace for years to come.

Yes, it's highly recommended to hire a professional to install a fireplace, especially if it involves any sort of gas or electrical connections. Installing a fireplace improperly can lead to safety hazards, including fire and gas leaks. A professional installer will have the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience to ensure the fireplace is installed correctly and safely, following all local building codes and regulations. Additionally, they can help you choose the right type and size of fireplace for your space and needs, and they can provide guidance on proper maintenance and usage.

Whether installing a fireplace is worth it depends on several factors, including your personal preferences, lifestyle, budget, and the specific circumstances of your home. Here are some considerations to help you decide:

  1. Aesthetic Appeal Fireplaces can add warmth and charm to a room, creating a cozy ambiance that many people enjoy, especially during the colder months. If you appreciate the look and feel of a fireplace, it may be worth it for you.

  2. Heating Efficiency Some types of fireplaces, such as gas or wood-burning inserts, can provide supplemental heat to your home, potentially reducing your heating bills. However, the heating efficiency can vary depending on factors like the fireplace's design, insulation of your home, and local climate.

  3. Cost The cost of installing a fireplace can vary widely depending on factors such as the type of fireplace, the complexity of the installation, and any additional features or modifications required. It's important to consider both the upfront installation costs and any ongoing maintenance expenses.

  4. Resale Value A fireplace can be a desirable feature for potential homebuyers and may increase the resale value of your home. However, the extent to which it impacts resale value can vary depending on the local real estate market and buyer preferences.

  5. Maintenance Fireplaces require regular maintenance, including cleaning, chimney inspections, and potentially repairs. Consider whether you're willing to invest the time and money into maintaining a fireplace.

  6. Environmental Impact Wood-burning fireplaces emit particulate matter and other pollutants, which can have negative environmental impacts and affect air quality. Gas fireplaces may be a cleaner alternative, but they still produce some emissions.

Ultimately, whether installing a fireplace is worth it is a personal decision that depends on your priorities and circumstances. It's a good idea to carefully weigh the pros and cons, consider your lifestyle and preferences, and consult with professionals if needed before making a decision.

The frequency with which you need to replace a fireplace depends on several factors, including the type of fireplace, its materials, and how well it's maintained. Here are some general guidelines for different types of fireplaces:

  1. Gas Fireplaces Gas fireplaces typically have longer lifespans compared to wood-burning fireplaces. With proper maintenance, including regular cleaning and inspections, a gas fireplace can last for many years—often 10-20 years or more. However, components such as thermocouples, gas valves, or electronic ignition systems may need replacement over time.

  2. Wood-Burning Fireplaces Traditional masonry or prefab wood-burning fireplaces may require more frequent maintenance and eventual replacement due to wear and tear. The lifespan of these fireplaces can vary widely depending on factors such as the quality of materials, usage, and maintenance practices. In some cases, parts of the fireplace, such as the firebox or chimney liner, may need repair or replacement due to damage or deterioration.

  3. Electric Fireplaces Electric fireplaces typically have longer lifespans compared to wood-burning or gas fireplaces because they have fewer mechanical parts and don't produce combustion byproducts that can cause wear and tear. With proper care, an electric fireplace can last for many years—often 10 years or more.

  4. Ethanol Fireplaces Ethanol fireplaces are relatively low-maintenance and can last for several years with proper care. However, the lifespan may be shorter compared to other types of fireplaces due to the nature of ethanol fuel and the materials used in the fireplace construction.

It's important to note that regular maintenance, including cleaning, inspections, and addressing any necessary repairs, can help prolong the lifespan of a fireplace and ensure safe and efficient operation. Additionally, if you notice any signs of damage or deterioration, such as cracks in the firebox or chimney, it's important to address them promptly to prevent further issues. Consulting with a professional fireplace technician can provide guidance on maintenance and when replacement may be necessary based on the condition of your fireplace.

One common problem with fireplaces, especially traditional wood-burning fireplaces, is the buildup of creosote in the chimney. Creosote is a black or brown residue that forms when wood is burned incompletely. Over time, creosote can accumulate on the walls of the chimney and become highly flammable. If not cleaned regularly, creosote buildup can increase the risk of chimney fires.

Other common problems with fireplaces include:

  1. Drafting Issues Poor drafting can lead to smoke entering the room instead of being drawn up the chimney. This can occur due to factors such as chimney blockages, insufficient chimney height, or competing airflows within the home.

  2. Cracks and Damage Masonry fireplaces can develop cracks in the firebox, chimney, or surrounding masonry due to age, weather exposure, or improper installation. Cracks can compromise the structural integrity of the fireplace and increase the risk of fire or carbon monoxide leaks.

  3. Leaks and Moisture Water penetration into the chimney or firebox can cause damage to the masonry, rusting of metal components, and deterioration of chimney liners. Leaks can occur due to damaged chimney caps, cracked masonry, or missing mortar joints.

  4. Faulty Gas Components In gas fireplaces, issues can arise with components such as thermocouples, gas valves, ignition systems, or pilot lights. These problems can prevent the fireplace from igniting or staying lit.

  5. Poor Maintenance Neglecting regular maintenance, such as cleaning and inspections, can lead to a variety of issues, including decreased efficiency, increased risk of fires, and deterioration of fireplace components.

  6. Carbon Monoxide Exposure Malfunctioning or improperly vented fireplaces can produce carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless gas that can be harmful or fatal if inhaled in high concentrations. Regular maintenance and proper ventilation are essential for preventing carbon monoxide buildup.

To mitigate these problems and ensure safe and efficient operation, it's important to have your fireplace inspected and maintained regularly by a qualified professional. This includes annual chimney inspections, cleaning as needed, and addressing any necessary repairs promptly.

Hands down the best experience and customer service I have received in years. Glyn and Austin came out to help me within a couple of hours of calling for an electrician to figure out why I didn’t have power to my furnace. They were kind and explained every step of the process. I will only use Finan Home Service going forward for all issues that arise in my home. I cannot thank you enough!!

Finana helped with our furnace when it was causing us issues. The team was extremely flexible and accommodating. The guys who came to help out were absolutely professional and super friendly. The team explained what was going wrong, what my options were, and didn't push or try to sell me anything I didn't need yet. When the time does come (hopefully longer than sooner) to replace my furnace there isn't another company I would even contemplate using.

Had Finan come out to fix a broken drainage pipe in our bathroom. Turned out to be a bigger job thanks to the previous homeowner's terrible DIY plumbing skills. Spoke to Sam at the office who very quickly set me up with the right peeps. The guys came out and were able to fix/replace the problem in less than 4 hours. Super friendly and professional. Will recommend to anyone looking for home service. Thanks again.

Great visit today from Connor and Cole! Friendly, informative, and great quality work and I am hard to please. Update: Had Connor back today to finish up the work. My new kitchen cabinets are going to look great and now the plumbing also looks great and allows for maximum storage under the sink. Quality work from a personable professional! Thank you!
