Prefabricated Fireplace 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?
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.
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!!

Everything from your company has been done in a professional manner! The person who came out to sweep my chimneys answered all my questions with pictures and a book full of before and after pictures of the most commonly needed repairs, and I was very impressed. Later on, you came back out to install chimney caps on both fireplaces. I was very please with all your work. And yes, when I need another chimney cleaning, I’ll definitely use A to Z again. You are professional and I give you very high marks!
