Columbia SC Brick Fireplaces- Brick fireplaces come in all shapes and sizes. So even if you don't want a "traditional" looking fireplace, you may find that the look and feel of brick is right for you. One of the great things about brick is that it can get old and beat up looking without losing its charm. Many fireplace owners feel that the aged look is part of that charm rather than something that detracts from it. If you've ever seen a brand new brick fireplace, you may understand what they're talking about. The brick is all shiny and new. It gleams. It looks nice in a way, but it doesn't look "natural." You feel as though you want to take it through a season of fires to break it in. Then it will look the way a brick fireplace ought to look. Then it will have that patina that adds warmth to the home even when there isn't a fire going.

Columbia SC Stone Fireplaces- Keep in mind that the stone used in a stone veneer fireplace needs to be durable and not susceptible to heat damage. Limestone, granite and dense metamorphic rocks can stand up to heat with no issues. Avoid soft rocks, slate or any other rock that crumbles fairly easily. The inside of the firebox should absolutely be built with hard firebrick set in fireclay, not mortar. Mortar used in between firebrick almost always crumbles when subjected to the repeated heat of fires. Fireclay is the preferred material as the joints between the brick are small, and the fireclay tends to vitrify with each fire.

Hot Fireplaces New technology adds efficiency to fireplaces' romantic appeal

Fireplaces were never hotter. We love them for the romance and cheer they bring to our lives, and it is nice that they add at least 10% to the value of a house, but right now we are also thinking that they might bring some relief from cruel fuel prices. A comforting thought, but is it realistic?

The truth is that conventional fireplaces send more heat up the chimney than they provide to your home. But the good news is that exciting new technologies now add energy-efficiency to the romantic tradition of the hearth.

New options

Fireplace inserts, gas logs, freestanding stoves, masonry heaters and new fuels are just a few of the dozens of options that make a fire in the grate more affordable, convenient and efficient as well as safer and environmentally friendly.

Yet, purists needn't fear that the wonderful looks of their hearths will be compromised. The shifting shapes and colors of the fire will be as fascinating as ever, and the instant solace the fireplace offers after cold commutes and shopping trips will remain unabated.

Fireplace inserts

For example, fireplace inserts, which the U.S. Department of Energy applauds for superior energy efficiency, have left their drab appliance look far behind. Today, they are great looking and come in a wide variety of styles, from traditional to contemporary. Designers and homeowners alike sing their praises.

"Many inserts include such aesthetic features as decorative tile, cast iron or enameled fronts, glass bays and brass trim," notes Sura Malaga of SRM Designs, Holmdel, New Jersey. "They won't embarrass even the most elegant rooms."

Fireplace inserts are heating units that fit into existing fireplaces and can burn wood, gas or wood pellets. They can generate more than 70,000 BTUs per hour and can warm up to 1900 sq. ft. of space.

Some models extend onto the hearth while others stay flush with the front of the fireplace. Most have tight-fitting glass or metal doors and built-in circulation features. The most efficient models supply combustion air from outside the house, and virtually all inserts are controlled-draft units with manually or thermostatically controlled air inlets. Some units are also available with catalytic converters for improved efficiency.

Glass doors, heat exchangers, dampers and flue sealers can also up the energy efficiency of an existing fireplace, but don't expect too much. According to the Department of Energy, those devices combined could only improve efficiency by some 10%.

If you want a whole new fireplace, you can take energy efficiency as well as great-looking design to the max. For example, stone fireplaces that have heated Swedish and Finnish manor houses for centuries are gaining ground in the U.S., and it is easy to understand why. They are stunning, but they are also very efficient. Since they are freestanding, they cast heat all around them, not just in one place, and the stone surfaces store up heat and release it over as many hours as needed. Expect to shell out big bucks for these beauties.

Another interesting option is the new fireplaces that don't require masonry chimneys, for they can be installed easily and safely in most any room. They are simply vented through an outside wall, and they are available as wall units, islands, peninsulas and two-sided models that let you enjoy the fire from adjoining rooms. They may burn wood, gas or propane.

There is no question that fireplaces are terrific and getting better all the time, but your mom was right on the money when she warned you not to play with fire. Safety is all-important, so before changing a fireplace or adding a new one, consult an architect or fireplace specialist. Also check local codes with your town's building department.
