Heat Reflector/Shield

        Firebox cracks generally occur in the backwall since this is where there is the highest concentration of heat from a fire.   The heat shield does an outstanding job of reducing and spreading the fire's damaging heat and as a result keeping the backwall protected against further damage.   The heat reflected out is not significant, but the protection is outstanding!

      Protect Your Firebox & Get The Most Out Of Your Fire With Heat Reflectors

              Fire and water are the two main contributors to the breakdown of chimneys and fireplaces.   At Apex Duct And Chimney Cleaning, we install a variety of parts to help protect the chimney system against water, but in order to protect against the damage that repeated fires can do to your firebox and fireplace, we highly recommend having our experienced, technicians install a heat reflector or heat shield.

              In an unprotected fireplace, the firebrick in your firebox will absorb a great deal of the heat from your fire, instead of projecting it out into your living area.   The back wall of your firebox, in particular, takes in a lot of that heat, and over time, the heat can cause firebricks to crack and mortar joints to crumble and deteriorate.   Repairing a damaged firebox usually means having detailed tuckpointing work done, which can be expensive and time-consuming.   But, there is something you can do to prevent firebox breakdown!

      Apex Duct And Chimney Cleaning Can Help You Keep
      The Heat Where It Should Be, By Installing A Heat Reflector

              When Apex Duct And Chimney Cleaning technicians install a dependable heat reflector or heat shield in your firebox, the back wall of the firebox is exposed to roughly a third less heat than it is without one.   Instead of being absorbed by the back wall of the firebox, heat is radiated into the living area, where it provides added warmth to the home and its inhabitants.   When a heat reflector is added to a fireplace, homeowners typically see a 20 to 40% increase in the amount of heat that's being reflected back into the room, depending on the type of fireplace they're using.   Whatever the percentage of the increase may be, you'll most certainly notice a difference.
