Stainless Steel Heat Reflectors

Heat reflectors have a long history in Europe and have been in use almost as long as fireplaces themselves! In the old days, Heat reflectors were made of cast iron, but modern “Heat Reflector/Shields” use more efficient materials like 304-alloy stainless steel for better durability and superior heat reflection! How much more heat? How does 20-42% more heat sound?

Stainless steel heat reflectors come in several different sizes to accomodate any fireplace size.

Without a heat reflector, much of the fire's heat is absorbed into the firebox's back wall where it can cause a lot of wear and tear damage.

Heat Reflectors are the next best thing to a wood stove insert for making a room nice and toasty! Besides more heat into the room, there is another HUGE ADDED BENEFIT: Protection for your fireplace! In an unprotected masonry or Prefab firebox heat is absorbed into the firebox bricks or refractory panels, and over time, these components break down and fail due to heat exposure. Fireplace repairs of this nature are often VERY EXPENSIVE.

This damaged firebox could have lasted much longer if it had been protected by a stainless steel heat reflector.

An average Masonry Firebox Rebuild can be over $1000, and a Zero Clearance Refractory Panel Replacement is around $235! Fireplaces with a “Heat Reflector/Shield” protecting them will be exposed to 1/3 less heat, and damage to the fireplace is significantly reduced or stopped. In essence, you’re getting 33% more useful life out of your fireplace and up to 42% more heat projected into your room!!

With the heat reflector installed, the firebox back wall is now exposed to far less damaging heat because up to 42% more heat will be reflected into the room!

Testimonials

Dear A to Z Chimney

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the great service you have done for me. I am an avid wood burner and love to burn my fires just about every evening. There’s nothing like the simple pleasure of curling up next to a warm and cozy fire during those cold winter nights.

Unfortunately, I had a chimney fire which did extensive damage to my chimney and it had to be re-lined with a new Stainless Steel Liner.

Last year, I hired a different company to come out and sweep my chimney. The sweep from that company tried to use high pressure sales tactics to get me to do the repairs. His poor attitude and high pressure turned me off so badly that I decided not to have them do the work.

This year, I hired your company and Chris Donovan was such a gentleman! He gave me the same bad news, but this time I could see it with my own eyes on the screen as he video scanned my flue. He was also much more knowledgeable and informative and really took the time to help me understand. He did not talk condescendingly, and there was no pressure whatsoever.

Consequently, I did hire your company to come back and complete the needed repairs, and was absolutely delighted!! Not only did Chris come back, but Aaron, the owner came, as well. I was delighted to know that the owner was personally seeing to the work. In the process of repairing my chimney, some other minor problems were detected, and they fixed them at no additional charge!

In addition, when everything was done, they did a spectacular job cleaning up every bit of their mess, and I couldn’t even tell they had been here.

Thanks again for the great service you provide! I will use you again and again, and refer you to my friends.

Sincerely,

~ Beverly Bland, Carmichael, CA
