As we start to head towards winter and its colder temperatures here in the Shenandoah Valley, you may be considering ways to make your home warmer this year. If you have been unhappy with the performance of your old masonry fireplace, this might be the right time to update it by having a new insert installed in its opening. Another issue you may be having is not having enough heat in certain parts of your home. You can easily add supplemental heat to this area with a new stove. No matter what the reason may be, Blue Ridge Chimney Services can help you and your family be warmer and cozier this winter with our stove and insert sales and professional installation services. We are proud vendors of Napoleon wood-burning stove and fireplace inserts, and you can trust our certified and experienced technicians to properly install your new unit in your home. We would like to tell you more about the stoves and inserts we carry.
The wood-burning stoves of the past were so smoky that many people still think of them as being an inefficient way to provide heat to their homes. Luckily, modern technology has allowed manufacturers to design stoves that burn much more cleanly and efficiently. Napoleon uses Vortex technology to achieve a clean burn without a catalytic converter. Jets of extremely hot secondary air are mixed with the smoke from the fire, and this burns off released smoke particles. Blue Ridge Chimney Services can help you find the right style and size of wood-burning stove to provide the perfect amount of heat that you need in your home this winter.
Using the same Vortex wood-burning technology that is used in manufacturing Napoleon stoves, these inserts can be almost as energy efficient as a gas fireplace. Once you have found the right insert for your home from our inventory, our Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified chimney professionals can properly install it in the opening of your older masonry fireplace. It is essential to have a new fireplace insert professionally installed because of the size difference between your new insert and your masonry chimney. Typically, the flue of a masonry fireplace is much larger than the size of a new insert. Blue Ridge Chimney Services will adjust this size difference by installing a custom-sized stainless steel liner to serve as the flue of your insert. This helps to avoid problems with chimney draft and masonry corrosion.
