Frequently Asked Questions

What are the main types of fireplaces?

Wood-burning fireplaces are the traditional fireplaces that burn wood. They tend to be more cost-effective and make the best use of natural resources.

Gas fireplaces supply constant heat without the hazardous fumes, and sparks emitted when using a traditional fireplace. They can provide the overall ambience of a wood-burning option but are more efficient and easier to clean.

Pellet stoves provide a similar ambience to a traditional fireplace but offer higher energy efficiency through wood composites that have been compressed into pellets

How long does it take to install a fireplace?

The length of the installation process is dependent on several factors. Installation can range from one day to an entire week. Fireplace technicians should not sacrifice safety measures and expertise to complete the installation more quickly.



 

How do I choose between wood and gas fireplaces?

If you are having difficulty making a choice, it is recommended that a fireplace technician is consulted. Suggestions can then be made according to your personal preferences.



 

What are fireplace inserts and are they necessary?

A fireplace insert is when a  stove is installed into traditional fireplace openings. There is a choice between wood, gas or wood pellets as fuel options. Converting a wood-burning fireplace into a gas fireplace is another function of fireplace inserts.



 

Can fireplaces operate when there is a power outage?

Gas and wood-burning fireplaces can work without any issues when there is no electricity. Fireplaces with electrical components and pellet inserts need electricity to function and will not be able to operate.

Is it possible to install a fireplace without a technician?

It is advised that fireplaces only be installed by a tradesperson that has the necessary licence and certifications. A fireplace installed incorrectly can be a safety risk. A technician will also ensure that the installation is compliant with building regulations, and a warranty will be provided. 

 


 



 

Do I need planning permission for self-installation?

It depends. If your new flue pipework is running on the exterior of your building, you may need permission to complete this fireplace task. Check with the local Planning Department.



 

Is it necessary to line my existing chimney?

If your house was built after 1964, your chimney should have a concrete or clay inner liner. If this is the case, you won't need to line the chimney again unless there is a problem with the original lining. The chimneys in older homes will usually just have exposed brick inside. Unless there are signs of leakage, you are not legally required to line your chimney. However, a good chimney lining will improve draw and reduce fire risk. Always ensure that the existing chimney is cleaned and checked for problems before a stove installation.  



 

How do I solve the problem of fireplace odours?

The odours emitted from wood-burning fireplaces often depend on the choice of wood. Gas fireplaces can also emit odours. If it is an older fireplace, offensive odours may indicate a clogged or dirty interior. The adhesives used in the surrounding materials can also contribute to unwanted odours. Contacting a fireplace expert for assistance might be the best option. 



 

What is the most common fireplace problem?

Chimney leaks are the most common problem. Rainfall will show if there are any flaws in your chimney. When rainwater enters your chimney, moisture accumulates and can cause damage.

What are the causes of chimney leaks?

There can be many causes of leaking chimneys. A damaged waterproof sealant can cause moisture to penetrate the masonry, creating cracks and allowing more water to flow in.

If there is no cap on the chimney, the hole in your rook is exposed to exterior hazards such as wildlife. The chimney crown may be damaged, or the entire chimney may be constructed poorly. The flexible seal between the roof and chimney may be damaged. The galvanised chase cover may have begun to rust. The most hazardous leak is carbon monoxide. This problem needs to be addressed swiftly. 



 

Is it necessary to repair chimney leaks?

Yes. It is necessary to repair chimney leaks as soon as possible to prevent more extensive damage such as rust, peeling wallpaper close to the fireplace, clogging due to the solidification of ash and water, a damaged mortar, or a tilting chimney.

How are chimney leaks repaired?

The most common repair is chimney relining, but a technician will need to identify the cause before repairing can occur.

What are the chimney liner options?

The types of chimney liners include clay, aluminium/stainless steel, and cast-in-place liners. The most popular liners are made of clay. They are the most affordable, but they tend to crack easily during extreme temperature changes.  The steel liners do not crack as easily but are costly. The cast-in-place liners support the chimney structurally but are difficult to install.



 

What type of repairs do gas fireplaces require?

Problems can occur with the main valve, air circulation, and pilot light in gas fireplaces leading to needed repairs. 



 

What types of repairs do wood fireplaces require?

Pipe obstructions can cause smoke to flow into the house instead of up the chimney. The fireplace grates can also deteriorate. 



 

What are the common causes of fireplace repair?

Issues with the chimney can cause devastating consequences. A damaged or broken damper can obstruct the smoke from exiting via the chimney. A damaged flue will affect how the fireplace works. Structural problems include masonry deterioration.



 

What causes damage to fire boxes?

Deterioration over time, water infiltration, incorrect installation, age, and excessive heat.



 

What are the benefits of installing a new firebox?

Proper venting will prevent fire hazards, will include properly installed mortar joints, and can lead to a new aesthetic appeal.



 

Does the YourPro platform show any fireplace companies that work on weekends in Dublin?

Most companies are available Monday to Saturday. Very few companies are open on Sundays for fireplace services in Dublin. 



 

Which areas does the YourPro platform cover in Dublin for fireplace companies?

The YourPro platform can provide you with a choice of fireplace companies that are located across Dublin. 



 

Can I Replace my Fireplace?

Yes, you can! Fireplace replacements is the work of replacing the traditional fireplace with an energy one, is carried out in a very short time and without disturbance for the house and inconvenience for the owners. The main feature of energy fireplaces is the existence of a door. The door is one of the most important elements of an energy fireplace as it helps to prevent the hot air produced through the chimney. It also contributes to the increase of the temperature inside the hearth, thus to the better combustion of the exhaust gases.
