Finding Your Hearth
The ambiance of a hearth is a welcome addition to any room. No matter what the style or age of your home, it can benefit from the warmth and comfort fireplaces, stoves or inserts provide. The possibilities for transformation from old and drafty to cozy and efficient are endless, so whether you’re in the market to give an old fireplace a facelift or add a new fiery focal point, Fireside is here to guide you towards the right hearth for your home and lifestyle. Browse through our selection of styles to see what catches your eye and begin imagining the possibilities. Our Hearth Experts are here to answer any questions you may have.
Let some of our favorite hearth makeovers serve as a starting point for the inspiration you need to update your own home. In this “before and after” example, we replaced the homeowner’s existing wood fireplace with a Heat & Glo 6000C. What a difference!
These photos certainly are impressive aesthetically, but they don’t say it all. What you don’t see is the convenience and energy savings a gas fireplace provides, or all the cozy memories with family and friends created around the hearth.
And if the cozy and welcoming heat isn’t enough to win you over, maybe these numbers will: a fireplace can increase your home’s value by 6-12% according to the National Association of Realtors.
With a gas fireplace, stove or insert, starting a fire is as easy as pressing a button on a remote or wall switch. There’s no ash to clean up and you’ll never need a chimney sweep again. With this kind of convenience, we know you’ll use your fireplace a lot more often! We guarantee it!
Open wood-burning fireplaces are inefficient, exhausting as much as 24,000 cubic feet of warm air to the outside every hour they burn while drawing cold air in through your home’s doors and windows. A gas fireplace, stove or insert turns these stats on their head. Many of our gas hearth products are up to 86% efficient (steady state), and because they’re sealed systems, there’s no draft to draw cold air into your house. Some homeowners experience estimated energy cost savings of up to $200 a year with an insert!
How it's Done
Wondering how you can make this happen in your own home? Visit one of our stores and we’ll show you multiple products, burning in room settings. We’ll answer all of your questions and then help you choose the perfect fireplace, stove or insert for your home and project. If you want to update the stone or brick surrounding your hearth product, we will also show you many options for stone styles, mantels, and accessories. We then provide you with an estimate, and once you accept it, the installation process begins! Here’s how it works:
- Installation verification visit. Prior to installing your new fireplace, stove or insert, we’ll visit your home to assess the existing unit and space, evaluate venting requirements, verify electrical and/or gas sources, and confirm measurements to ensure a smooth installation. This step also includes obtaining any required building permits on your behalf.
- Installation. We professionally install your fireplace, stove or insert with related mechanics and surrounding features. This can take as little as half a day.
- Inspection. A representative from your local municipal or county inspector’s office visits your home to inspect the installation. Depending on the type of installation and location requirements, additional inspections may be required.
- Start up. Our installers perform the start-up process with you. This includes prepping and lighting the unit, demonstrating how it operates, reviewing features and benefits, and providing maintenance tips.
