Reduce the Risk of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Damaged firebacks allow carbon monoxide to get into the chimney and into rooms around the home. Carbon Monoxide poisoning brings with it deadly consequences, so it is imperative to take precautions such as having a carbon monoxide alarm and having your boiler serviced regularly. Maintaining the fireback in your fireplace is just as important.

Protect Your Masonry

The masonry on the inside of a chimney can be pretty expensive, so it pays to have a layer of protection that minimizes the deterioration of the internal structure.


A fireback can reflect heat back into the room, which would have otherwise escaped up the chimney. This can allow homeowners to increase the efficiency of their fireplace by 50%, saving you money on coal and briquettes.


A nicely designed fireback can add a finishing touch to your fireplace.
