Factory-Built Fireplaces

You’re Going To Love Your New Factory-Built Wood Or Gas Fireplace!

With today’s factory-built fireplaces, you have more installation options than ever before, and you can get beautiful natural stone and masonry looks without the costs and logistics.

Here are some reasons to choose a factory-built fireplace:

When you have a masonry fireplace built in your home, all kinds of factors can determine the efficiency, safety, and overall performance and longevity of the fireplace system — like the design, the construction, and the skill and knowledge of the team building it. But when you choose a factory-built fireplace, you don’t have to worry about any of that.

In fact, factory-built fireplaces are built just as their name implies, in factory, and tested for safety, efficiency, and performance. All you have to do is make sure the new system is installed by an experienced Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) -certified professional, and you’ll know your fireplace will perform at the incredible efficiency ratings and safety levels guaranteed by the manufacturer. There’s no room for discrepancies — you get exactly what was promised.

But guaranteed performance, efficiency, and safety aren’t the only benefits of a new factory-built fireplace.

Masonry fireplaces and chimneys can cost a great deal of money in terms of labor and materials. Because they’re built on site, brick by brick, stone by stone, or tile by tile, they can take a lot of man hours to construct, and the natural materials used can be quite costly. Likewise, these materials can be incredibly heavy and require a lot of space and footing.

But today’s factory-built fireplaces are crafted out of materials that authentically resemble many naturally occurring materials, including slate, tile, stone, marble, and brick. While it’s hard to tell the difference in terms of looks, you can definitely tell the difference in weight and cost. The materials used to construct prefab fireplaces are lightweight, and since these fireplaces are simply installed, you have more options in regards to where you put it and how quickly you get to enjoy it. And because you won’t be spending so much money on labor and materials, you’ll be able to enjoy your fireplace even more.

When Is A Fireplace Swap Out A Good Idea?

We can swap out your fireplace for a new prefab fireplace that’s sure to not only greatly enhance the visual appeal of your hearth and living space, but to also provide greater warmth, convenience, and efficiency than your old fireplace.

Here are a few reasons to swap out that old fireplace:

Older fireplaces just don’t have the high efficiency ratings of modern fireplaces and many are highly polluting. Go green by swapping out your old fireplace for a new, EPA-certified fireplace that’s efficient and clean burning. You’ll get more heat from your hearth, without the waste or environmental guilt.

Is the age of your worn down fireplace obvious to everyone who enters your home? Today’s fireplaces come in an array of styles and designs, so if you’re ready to bring your living space into this decade or add a classic, traditional vibe, a simple fireplace swap out could be the finishing touch you need.

Many homes built in the 1970s and 1980s feature factory-built fireplaces, and for many of these fireplaces, when they break, repair is no longer an option. Manufacturers go out of business or stop production on parts for older models, which can leave you, the homeowner in a bind. But you can make the most out of the situation by calling Trinity Chimney Service.

Every portion of a prefab chimney and fireplace is designed, tested, and listed to work together. If the fireplace and chimney are improperly installed or if anything changes and something that’s not approved for the factory-built system is installed, the safety of your home will be greatly compromised. If you’ve made changes that you aren’t sure about or you’re unsure of the original installation, call us. The team of CSIA-certified sweeps here at Trinity Chimney can provide you with a system that is properly installed and approved for safe use together.

Ventis Forever Fireplace is the perfect choice for a woodburning fireplace swap out. High quality, high heat, and high versatility, the stainless steel construction is built to stand the test of time and bring radiant heat to the heart of your home.

Wood Or Gas — Which Is Right For You?

So now that we’ve covered some of the main reasons you’ll love a factory-built fireplace, it’s time to consider fuel types. Is wood better for your needs, or gas?

Here are some benefits of each fuel:

Wood is a natural choice for many because they love the whole experience of building a fire and all the crackles, pops, and dancing flames that go along with it. Plus, wood is a renewable resource that’s easy to come by, easy to season, and easy to store. And since wood fireplaces don’t rely on any electricity to heat your home, you can enjoy the warmth of the fireplace when you need it most — like during a power outage in the middle of winter!

Gas is a great choice for homeowners who are always on the go and just like to enjoy the good life. The fire can be started and stopped with a button or a switch (or even a remote control), and the clean-up and maintenance involved is virtually non-existent. And if you’re worried about the log set in the fireplace looking bulky and fake, don’t be. Modern log sets are crafted from real wood log molds and hand-painted for the ultimate in realism.

Our wood stoves and inserts are some of the most popular appliances we sell and install.

No matter which fuel type or fireplace you choose, you’ll be happy to know that all of our factory-built fireplaces have these qualities:

  • EPA-approved
  • highly efficient
  • easy to use
  • easy to maintain
  • long-lasting

You’re sure to find exactly what you want with Trinity Chimney.
