Having a fireplace or insert installed somewhere in your living space is a desire for many homeowners, but few know the costs behind having this done. Well, your final price point will likely depend on various factors including the style you choose, as well as the brand, size, fuel type, and more.

Deciding On Your Brand
We carry various brands of appliances, including Regency, Napoleon, Astria, Valor, and more, so deciding which manufacturer you would prefer is a big step in picking out your perfect fireplace. Napoleon inserts, for example, can range from around $1,500 to anywhere up to $7,000, depending on the size and features you hope to invest in.
Wood, Gas, Or Pellet?
The type of fuel you hope to utilize also makes a big difference in price. Typically, wood-burning options are the most expensive to install, but you can rest easier knowing they will never go out of style. Some units leave homeowners with a bill close to $8,000, but note that any fireplace will increase home value and help you lower home energy costs, as well.
Keep in mind that price will vary a lot depending on whether or not you are having the unit built into your home or free-standing. Additional costs can also come in the form of glass doors, hearth boards, mantels, and other fireplace accessories.
If you are not sure where to start, your best bet would be to discuss options with our team. For example, if you know you want a gas-fueled unit, we can discuss how the cost of a fireplace will differ from that of a stove or insert. On the other hand, if you know you want an insert, but aren’t certain of the best fuel type to invest in, we can give you price points on those, as well.
Trust A Professional With Your Installation Needs
Finally, have the perfect unit picked out? Whether it is a wood-burning stove, a gas-fueled insert, a pellet-fueled fireplace, or something else, trusting in a professional to install it correctly is a must. This is not a do-it-yourself job, and attempting to tackle it without the proper education or training could put your home at risk.
Even a seemingly successful installation job can have minor issues that might lead to clogs, excess creosote accumulation, gas leaks, and more. It is not worth taking any chances and, all in all, the best way to guarantee better results from your system is to trust in a professional from the very start.
Don’t waste money on expensive repairs that could have been avoided by trusting an expert from the get-go. Count on Top Hat Chimney & Roofing to handle it all.
