Diamond Willow installs and repairs fireplaces and inserts in Cochrane, Alberta, and surrounding areas.
Many homeowners live with the assumption that a house either comes with a fireplace for life or it will never have one. It’s entirely possible to install a new fireplace in an existing structure. There are several different options available. You can choose a traditional masonry fireplace with a large chimney or a more modern zero-clearance fireplace that is raised off the floor. The sleeker, more modern alternatives are much easier to install and maintain.
In either case, it’s crucial that a certified and trusted company like Diamond Willow handles the installation. An improperly installed fireplace can be a serious fire hazard.
Diamond Willow works closely with the best fireplace manufacturers and our certified technicians are extremely knowledgeable. Some of the brands we work most closely with include:
This means we can install and service all different types of fireplaces. If you’re a homeowner considering installing a new fireplace, one of the first questions you’ll need to answer is, “Which type of fireplace is right for me?” Here are a couple of the options Diamond Willow has available.
These are usually gas-burning and inserted into an existing fireplace structure. Inserts are considerably more efficient than older open fireplaces. They reduce the amount of air leakage and can increase the efficiency of the fireplace by as much as 80 percent.
An insert also allows you to change the fuel source. For example, if you currently have a wood burning masonry fireplace, you can upgrade to a gas burning fireplace with a simple insert. They are also easier to maintain than older masonry fireplaces.
A zero-clearance fireplace is one of the most modern and stylish options.
Not only are they considered more energy efficient than traditional fireplaces, but they are also more space efficient. They can be placed on walls high enough off the ground that the space at the foot of the fireplace is not wasted. Their structure can efficiently contain the heat on the sides, which makes it safe to install near sheetrock, paneling, and other materials found on the inside of a home.
