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?

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.

With a heat reflector installed, your fireplace’s back wall will be exposed to less damaging heat AND up to 42% more heat will be reflected back into the room.

Damaged Back Refractory Panel - Sacramento CA - A to Z Chimney Services

This back refractory panel has been damaged due to heat exposure and must now be replaced.

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!!

Testimonials

I had used A to Z several years ago to have sun screens installed on our home and had a great experience, so it was only natural that I’d call them back to clean our dryer vent when my dryer started taking a long time to dry our clothes.

All I can say is WOW! The hair stood up on the back of my neck when I saw how much lint they extracted from my vent! Can you say MAJOR FIRE HAZARD? Needless to say, we’ll be having A to Z back out a lot more often to make sure it never gets this dirty again!
