How Is a Wood Fireplace Insert Installed?

If you’ve been browsing DIY fireplace insert installation options, you may be wondering if this is the best route for you. Generally speaking…no. Installing a wood fireplace insert involves several complex steps, and it’s a job best left to a professional installer or a certified chimney technician. They have the training to ensure the system functions safely and efficiently when all is said and done. Not to mention, DIY attempts usually will void any warranties.

The good news? For Rochester fireplace insert installation services, we’re just a phone call away.

Each fireplace installation job will be a little different, depending on your unique needs, but here’s a general overview of what you can expect from us:

  • Assess the existing fireplace and chimney to ensure they are suitable for your preferred wood fireplace insert.
  • Take accurate measurements of the fireplace and the dimensions of the insert to ensure a proper fit.
  • Place the wood fireplace insert into the fireplace opening. The insert should fit snugly, and any gaps between the insert and the fireplace opening may need to be sealed using appropriate materials, such as fire-resistant insulation.
  • Connect the wood fireplace insert to the chimney liner. This connection is essential for proper venting.
  • Secure the insert in place. This may involve using brackets or screws to ensure the insert is firmly anchored and stable.
  • If needed, install insulation around the insert to improve efficiency and reduce heat loss.
  • Conduct a test burn to ensure that the wood fireplace insert is functioning correctly.
