Fireplace Conversions & Changeouts
If you’re dissatisfied with your masonry fireplace or manufactured fireplace, you have several outstanding solutions. Perhaps the problem you’re having involves heating efficiency – or the lack thereof. Or maybe you want to change to a fireplace with a different fuel, such as from wood to gas.
In these and other cases, Oliver Twist Chimney & Fireplace of Huntington Beach, CA, knows how to do the job right. Here’s some information about fireplace conversions and changeouts that you’ll find helpful.
Converting a Masonry Fireplace
Owners of open-hearth masonry fireplaces often complain that the appliances don’t do a great job of heating and using fuel efficiently. This is because wood-burning masonry fireplaces are “open” and allow most of the heat they produce to be lost up the chimney.
A masonry fireplace can be converted by adding a new fireplace insert that runs on natural gas or propane. Oliver Twist performs many conversions for our Southland customers by upgrading their masonry fireplaces with new gas-fueled inserts that are easy to use and super-efficient.
You can make a wood-to-gas conversion even simpler by adding a gas log set to your masonry fireplace and begin enjoying the beauty of real flames and the convenience of minimal maintenance.
If these options sound right for your home, we’re happy to share more information and answer your questions about use and upkeep of the new appliance as well as installation, which our technicians provide.
Older manufactured fireplaces, particularly builder grade units that are installed when a home is built, can begin to fail over time. It’s like with any appliance or piece of machinery in a home: age takes its toll, and you can end up spending more money on repairs than the item is worth.
Oliver Twist specializes in replacing older, outdated fireplaces with fabulous new models that bring immediate beauty, elegance and heat to our customers’ homes.
We can perform a changeout by replacing a gas fireplace with a wood fireplace or a newer gas unit. Or we can go the other way and remove your existing wood manufactured fireplace and add a sturdy new gas or wood model in its place
