Accessories are such a fun thing to think about! We spend a lot of time making major purchases, but the fun part of anything new is the accessories that go with it. For example, if you redecorate a room, you spend time picking out new carpet and paint or paneling for the walls. You pick out the essential furnishings as well. But what really ties the room together is the little things, the accessories, like the pictures that go on the wall or the knick-knacks you put on the end tables. How about a new outfit? It’s fun to put together the body of the outfit, but what really adds your own special touch is the accessories the shoes and jewelry that go with the outfit. Did you know that when it comes to your chimney, there are accessories you can buy that can make your life easier, improve the look of your fireplace, or even both?
What Types of Accessories
Do you ever wish that you could get more heat out of your fireplace? If you’re sitting right in front of it, you can stay toasty warm, but sometimes farther out into the room you just can’t feel so much of the heat. It this is a problem you’re having, then a fireback might be just the thing you’re looking for. Firebacks used to be a more common fireplace accessory, and they are now making a comeback as a great way to radiate heat back into your room without the use of fans. A fireback is made of stainless steel or cast iron. It sits in the back of your firebox where it can absorb the heat of the fire and radiate it right back into the room. What a great way to get the heat out into your room and save on energy bills by making your fireplace more efficient!
Another great addition to your fireplace is a smoke guard. Have you noticed that you often have smoke coming back into your room rather than heading out of the chimney like it should be? One reason could be that your flue isn’t the correct size, and there are other factors that could be contributing to the problem as well. If you find that you are having this issue, a simple solution may be to purchase a smoke guard. This will keep that bothersome smoke from your living room. Of course, it’s always wise to call in a professional from Owens Chimney Systems if a smoke guard doesn’t do the trick. We’ll be able to get to the source of your problem and help you find solutions as well.
