Prefab Fireplace Cleaning, Installation, & Repair

A prefabricated (prefab) fireplace is a fireplace that has been manufactured and assembled in a factory before being transported and installed at a job site. These fireplaces are also sometimes referred to as factory built fireplaces or zero-clearance fireplaces. To compare, a masonry fireplace is built on the site with hand-laid brick or stone.

The main benefit of installing a prefab fireplace is simply the cost savings. These units are generally cheaper to build and install than a masonry fireplace.

Like we mentioned above, one of the main benefits to installing a prefab fireplace is the cost. Prefab fireplaces are very popular in newer homes because the construction and installation costs are typically lower.

In addition, many prefab fireplace designs are ventless. This allows the user to burn a gas fire without the need to vent any fumes to the outside of the home. Many prefab fireplace units are installed inside of an existing fireplace, while the majority of units are built for new construction or remodeled rooms.

Prefab Fireplace Cleaning

Regular prefab fireplace cleaning allows your fireplace to operate more efficiently. It also makes your fireplace look more attractive! But most importantly, fireplace cleaning will greatly reduce your risk for chimney fires.

Cleaning your prefab fireplace should ideally come at a time when you do not expect to use it for a while, as in the warm summer months, to remove ash, soot and smoke build-up. But if you haven’t had your yearly fireplace cleaning, chimney cleaning, or chimney inspection, schedule it now before you pile another winter’s worth of soot on top of last season’s buildup.

If you need fireplace cleaning in the Maryland, Northern Virginia, or Washington D.C. area, contact Capitol Chimney Service today.

Prefab Fireplace Repair

A prefab fireplace will typically last between 15 and 40 years if it’s been properly installed and maintained. But like most heating systems, certain parts may break down before others. With a prefab fireplace, it’s important that you replace these parts with parts by the same manufacturer as your fireplace. Capitol Chimney Service can help!

If you’re experiencing chimney leaks or any other problem with your prefab fireplace, call Capitol Chimney Service for fireplace repair in the Maryland, Washington, D.C., or Virginia area.
