It’s the time of year when the weather starts to cool down, the days get shorter, and people start to think about snowfall and hot cocoa. There’s nothing quite as nice as snuggling down in front of a warm, crackling fire on a dark, snowy evening after you’ve spent a long day working, whether outside in the cold weather or in front of a desk. But some people don’t have that luxury. Many people would like to have that comforting experience, but not everyone has the money or the floor space to put in a fireplace. Or sometimes the problem is the support system that would be necessary to hold the chimney needed to vent out the smoke from a wood burning fire. If you’ve been thinking about adding a fireplace to your home, a good option to think about is a prefabricated chimney.Prefabricated chimney on a new roof

Benefits of a Prefabricated Chimney

One of the biggest benefits of installing a prefabricated chimney in your home is the weight of it. Rather than building a traditional fireplace from brick and mortar, which requires extensive footing to support it, a prefab chimney is made of metal and comes from the factory as a complete unit that can be installed without needing a substantial support system. The chimney and fireplace come as a complete system that are made to go together. It is important that this system be installed by professionals, and the professionals at Chimney Doctors of Colorado are the ones to get the job done right.

Prefabricated chimney systems are quick to install, especially when the installation process is done by Chimney Doctors of Colorado. Another benefit of installing a prefab chimney is price. These systems are much less expensive than a brick and mortar system, and spending less is something that makes every homeowner happy!

Another benefit of prefabricated chimneys is that they are constructed with less seams and joints, which means there are less places that could be weak and leaky. Therefore, you can rest easy knowing that it is less likely that smoke and exhaust will leak into your home.

Safety and Functionality

Because prefabricated chimneys are made in the factory, they are tested in the factory for safety and efficiency. This means that you can use your new fireplace knowing that your family will be safe and warm, and your wallet won’t take a hit from higher heating costs. Because it’s made from inexpensive, lightweight materials, you don’t have to worry about overspending on the initial cost, either. Not only this, but when you have your new appliance installed by the professionals at Chimney Doctors of Colorado, it will last 10 to 20 years. Additionally, replacement is an easy, as well as inexpensive, process.
