Modern Gas Fireplace Inserts You Can Install This Weekend

You now know what the Modern Gas Fireplace Inserts for. The thing you should learn is how to install one. Simplicity is beauty and this certainly applies here. You need not pay for installation services of other people because you can do it all by yourself. What you need for doing so are screws, screwdriver, flue liner, aluminum snips, a piece of heavy cardboard, chalk and a chimney caulk. By following these steps, you can install a Modern Gas Fireplace Insert all on your own. Although it looks a bit complicated, it is in truth very simple and easy. Having the Modern Gas Fireplace Inserts installed can really be beneficial to your home.

The first step that you should take when you install a fireplace insert is to set the piece of cardboard on the hearth, which can be found just in front of the fireplace. Position the insert on the cardboard and very carefully, slide it onto the rear wall of the fireplace. You should make sure that you get to center your insert in the fireplaces opening. Then, get rid of the damper. Slide your flue liner from the top of the chimney and attach it in the flue collars adapter, this may be found at the top part of your insert. Secure the flue liner and collar in place with the use of screws. Then, remove any additional liner left at the top of the chimney while using the snips. When you are finished with it, you should then mark some lines, using the chalk, in the top and sides of the insert in alignment with the front part and the sides of the opening of the fireplace.

Here comes the hard part. You should carefully pull the fireplace insert out, enough for you to make use of the ready-made holes in the top and the sides. Vigilantly put together the top extender panel to the insert using the screws that were provided. Position the panel in such a way that the chalk lines will be concealed. Now that you concealed them, tighten the screws. Next, do the same procedure using the side panels. Once you are done, put some chimney caulk into the joints and seams between the insert and extender panels and the top and side panels respectively. Finally, set up the insulation strips in the panel’s back part. Then, slide back the insert onto its original place.
