Ahren-Fire Fireplace Restoration — The All-In-One Solution To Performance & Safety Problems

Traditional fireplaces, although beautiful, can oftentimes be wasteful, inefficient, or unsafe, especially if they weren’t built properly. But here at Lou Curley’s Chimney Service, we’re proud to offer our neighbors throughout Philadelphia and the neighboring communities the perfect solution to fireplace woes: the Ahren-Fire Fireplace Restoration System.

What Is Ahren-Fire?

The Ahren-Fire system is an all-in-one fireplace system that can easily and affordably restore and improve your fireside experience, without requiring you to completely rebuild your chimney and fireplace. The system was designed to improve fireplace efficiency and performance, and to provide more heat and a cleaner, more complete burning of fuel.

The fireplace components are cast from high temperature refractory material (which can take the heat) and made to provide a realistic brick look and pattern. Because every component of the fireplace restoration system is designed to work together, each component fits together perfectly and properly for a faster, less labor-intensive installation — which means you can be enjoying your fireplace sooner and with less expense.

Ahren Fire Fireplace benefits safety problems, brings fireplace up to code, less creosote production and eradicate smoke and draft problems.

Who Can Benefit From The Ahren-Fire Fireplace Restoration System?

Is your flue too small for a traditional fireplace system? One of the benefits of the Ahren-Fire Fireplace Restoration System is that it only requires the flue area to be 1/20 the area of the firebox, while traditionally, the flue needs to be 1/10+ the size of the firebox. This is especially beneficial for homeowners here in Philadelphia, because we find that many fireplaces in the area have undersized flues.

The Ahren-Fire Fireplace Restoration System is also ideal for those who are looking to:

  • Fix safety problems and bring their fireplace up to code. As an all-in-one system, the Ahren-Fire Fireplace Restoration System can eradicate problems like improper clearance to combustibles, flue sizing issues, and smoke chamber, firebox, and local building code issues. By installing this system, we can take an unsafe fireplace and completely transform it, without altering the appearance of the fireplace facing or completely rebuilding the chimney and fireplace.
  • Get more heat from their fire, with less creosote production. The firebox of the Ahren-Fire Fireplace Restoration System is crafted to radiate heat back into the fire and back into the home for a more even, more radiant heat, and a more complete burn. The more complete the burn, the less you’ll need to worry about creosote production and buildup in your system.
  • Eradicate smoke and draft problems. Smoke and draft problems are often the result of an incorrectly sized flue/fireplace opening, but the Ahren-Fire Fireplace Restoration System completely eradicates flue size-related smoke and draft problems. Because each component of the system is perfectly designed to work together, the firebox and the flue are the perfect ratio for a perfect draft. And with a strong draft, smoke doesn’t have time to sink back and bellow into your home.
