Prevent Fireplace Firebox Repairs with a Heat Reflector

Prevent Fireplace Firebox Repairs with a Heat Reflector

Prevent Fireplace Firebox Repairs with a Heat Reflector

“Fireplace firebox repairs are expensive. You can avoid repairs by installing a heat reflector today. With the price of gas on the rise, why not maximize the efficiency from your gas log set?” -Jon Cerrito Jr., President, Chimney Cricket.

A heat reflector will maximize your gas and wood use in any fireplace.

In an unprotected fireplace heat is absorbed into the back wall of the fireplace, which causes the bricks to crack and the mortar that holds the chimney together to break down. This will lead to expensive fireplace firebox repairs. By installing a heat reflector , the back wall of the fireplace will be exposed to 1/3 less heat. The extra heat is then radiated back into the room where it should be, and the damage to the fireplace firebox is significantly reduced and/or stopped. It is also great for protecting masonry fireplaces from heat damage and getting additional heat out of any open fireplace (up to 42% more heat!). With the fireplace firebox heating up and cooling down so often it becomes brittle; Factor in the effects of rain and you can realize the amount of repair that will have to take place.

Fireplace Firebox Repair and Rebuilding

Fireplace Firebox Repair and Rebuilding

Chimney Cricket masons can repair and rebuild your fireplace firebox to look and function as though it were new. While all types of firebox repairs can be handled, we specialize in repairing refractory panels on pre-fabricated and zero clearance fireboxes.

The firebox is the part of the fireplace where the wood is placed in order to make a fire. Just as a home will settle, so do fireplaces. If the fireplace firebox has cracked bricks or deteriorating mortar joints, it needs to be rebuilt with new fire bricks and high temperature refractory mortar. This will restore the structural integrity. Water is another cause of fireplace firebox destruction. Chimney Cricket can add a chimney cap to aid in the firebox repair and prevent future damage.

Installing Gas Fireplace Logs In Your Home

Installing Gas Fireplace Logs In Your Home

Chimney Cricket experts have been installing gas fireplace logs since 1990.

Vented Gas Logs

Vented Gas Logs create a realistic fire, complete with glowing embers simply by striking a match and turning on a valve. Several styles modeled after real logs are available for installation from Chimney Cricket.

Each gas log set comes complete with all the necessary accessories and hardware for natural gas installation. A conversion kit is required for propane installations along with a safety pilot control. It is optional for natural gas but required for all propane installations.

Decorative silica sand, volcanic cinders, dual effect embers, pedestal grate, damper stop and an aluminum connector for installation come with every vented gas log set.

Create the authentic atmosphere of a wood fire with these natural-looking gas logs.

Vent-Free or Ventless Gas Logs

With vent-free or ventless gas logs, wood burning fireplaces can become vent free systems. Vent-free gas logs reduce heating costs by:

1: using about half the fuel of conventional gas logs

2: operating with the damper closed (no heat is lost up the chimney).

Each system uses natural gas and comes with:

  • refractory ceramic logs and ember base
  • high-efficiency burners
  • an oxygen depletion sensor
  • a safety pilot control
  • a spark igniter
  • a pedestal grate
  • grate facing and an adjustable heat control valve.

Sets are available in all sizes ranging from 18” to 72”.

Installing gas fireplace logs in your home will make life easier; No more hauling wood, dirty ashes, and dangerous sparks ever again.

Gas Fireplace Accessories

You can enhance the beauty of your gas log setting with three styles of gas fireplace accessories:

1: ceramic pine cones and a ceramic bark chip kit

2: volcanic cinders

3: vermiculite embers and rock wool embers which renew and restore the original rocks that come with gas log sets.

You can also purchase gas fireplace accessories to keep your logs clean. ACS gas log cleaner is a premium grade anti-carbon spray that will help disperse this buildup when lightly sprayed on the logs. It is nonflammable, non-toxic and non-corrosive.

In addition to these traditional gas logs, Chimney Cricket offers a great selection of fireplace fire glass. Adding elegant and low-maintenance fire glass can help enhance the look of any fireplace.
