Fireplace & Stove Sales & Installations
You have a lot of options today if you’re thinking about adding a new heating appliance to your home — fireplaces, stoves and inserts; wood-burning or factory-made units. With many options come many decisions and many considerations, and the experienced technicians at Blue Ridge Chimney Services would love to help you figure out the best choices for you, your home and your family. We’ve built and installed fireplaces and stoves all over the Shenandoah Valley and can help you weigh the benefits and drawbacks of all of the different possibilities.
Factory-built units and chimneys are crafted together as a complete unit out of much lighter materials (metal and glass, generally), so they can be very affordable, and typically offer more flexible placement options than a masonry fireplace. Factory-built units pass numerous safety and efficiency tests before they hit the market, so you know their safety and efficiency ratings before you buy.
These factors make factory-built units highly popular. In fact, the Health, Patio & Barbecue Association notes that over 75 percent of fireplaces installed annually are factory-built units.
We Don’t Just Build And Install Fireplaces: Let’s Talk Stoves And Inserts
Stoves If you’re really looking for a heating boost in your home, stoves can be very efficient additions. Blue Ridge Chimney Services recommends and regularly installs Napoleon® wood burning stoves, which are praised for their clean burn and durable craftsmanship. And with all the options available today, you can find a unit that appeals to your tastes, whether you lean toward classic stoves that bring frontier life to mind, or you want something sleek and modern with glass doors to showcase the burning fire. Whatever your style and taste, we can help you find the perfect stove for you.
Inserts Having an insert installed can be a great way to bring new life to an existing appliance that’s on its last leg. Inserts are retrofitted into your existing unit, and can burn wood or other fuels, and are available in a variety of different styles and sizes.
Choosing A Fuel
Talk with your Blue Ridge Chimney Services technicians about your fuel options. Different uses and heating needs make certain fuels better for certain homes—give us a call — we can arm you with all the information you need to make an informed choice.
Wood Many homeowners choose wood-burning units because they love the classic crackle and smell of a wood fire, but wood has other practical benefits, too. Wood is a renewable fuel that can be very affordable. Plus, during power outages and winter storms, you won’t be stuck in the cold, as wood units typically function completely independent of utilities.
