Firebacks

Make Your Fireplace More Efficient

When fireplaces were first designed, high end models were never considered complete unless they included a fireback. Firebacks are primarily used to store heat and keep the room warm after the fire has died down. These items not only serve a functional purpose, but they also add value to the aesthetics of your fireplace.

When positioned against the back wall of the fireplace, a fireback will protect the masonry of the wall and push the heat forward, back into the room. The fireback is often considered the center of the hearth because when you look directly into the fireplace you will see the intricate designs of the fireback.

There are many designs to choose from when it comes to purchasing the best fireback for your fireplace. Many manufacturing companies offer unique, elaborate designs in order to make your fireplace as original as possible. Some manufacturers will also custom design your fireback in order to ensure it is completely original and reflects your distinct, personal tastes.

Firebacks operate effectively regardless of the type of fireplace you own. Whether you own a wood burning stove or a gas fireplace, these products are effective in adding a unique touch to your fireplace while maintaining a warm living environment for you and your family. Firebacks are important in order to protect the back wall of your fireplace. Without a fireback to protect this area, the back wall will become damaged, possibly to the point where your fireplace is unable to perform effectively.

If you are looking to purchase a fireback for your fireplace, expect to pay anywhere from $100 to $1000 dollars depending on the style, design and make. Cast iron firebacks are the most efficient and effective type of fireback on the market and will show the best results when it comes to the performance of your fireplace. The style of fireback you choose will depend on the amount of money you are willing to spend as well as the quality of fireback you are expecting to receive.

Firebacks are an essential element in any fireplace. Without a fireback, your chances of recurring problems with your fireplace are greatly increased. If you're expecting your fireplace to perform effectively and efficiently, a fireback is a critical element in the fireplace design.
