3 Easy Steps to Remodel Your Fireplace

Fireplace gas insert
before and after fireplaces

Go from old to new with an easy to install gas fireplace insert.

Do you have an ugly, dated, wood-burning fireplace you’d like to bring back to life? Brass doors from the 80s. Dirty soot and ashes. Messy firewood.  Uninviting. Unused.  If so, it’s time to remodel your fireplace.

Heat & Glo Fireplace Inserts

The simplest and most cost effective way to transform your old brick or manufactured fireplace into an attractive and comfortable space is with a Heat & Glo gas fireplace insert.

Henry Poor Lumber offers Heat & Glo gas fireplace inserts that turn an used wood-burning fireplace into an energy efficient and attractive centerpiece of your room.

A “gas insert” fits inside your wood-burning fireplace opening. It is fed by a copper gas line that brings instant warmth into your home. All with no work and just the touch of a button.

Easy As One, Two, Three

A fireplace makeover is an amazingly easy process that converts your wood-burning fireplace into a beautiful, warm and easy-to-use gas fireplace insert with these three easy steps.

  1. Bring in a photo of your fireplace to Henry Poor Lumber to find out what “gas insert” will work best for you.  Go to the Heat & Glo website to view your options.
  2. Have your gas fireplace insert installed safely by a local contractor.
  3. Sit back and enjoy having a beautiful and efficient fireplace.

This is also the time to update the overall look of your fireplace by installing new stone or brick facing, or painting the older brick to give it a contemporary, refreshed look.

Building Materials Industry Careers

workers on job site

The Building Materials Industry Needs You!

Building homes, schools, office buildings and communities can’t happen without professionals in the construction trades and lumber and building materials (LBM) industry.

Today there is a shortage of skilled workers in these industries.  These jobs pay well, are fun to work in, and have abundant opportunities for career growth.

Lumber and Building Materials

There are various roles in the building materials industry for anyone willing to work hard and be responsible.  These include Sales Specialist, Kitchen and Bath Designer, Building Component Designer, Material Estimator, Carpenter, and Truck Driver.

Training for these positions is often acquired on the job from attending seminars, workshops, and working alongside more experienced co-workers.  The Midwest Building Suppliers Association has a very good video at LBM Careers that provides great insight into your future in this industry.

Construction Trades

In the construction trades there are opportunities as electricians, plumbers and carpenters that do require additional education and apprenticeships, but not a four year college degree.  These jobs pay very well and offer long term job security.

.

Heat & Glo Phoenix fireplace

Design Features

Be captivated with beautiful hand-painted logs, glowing LED ember bed and bold flames. You can choose either traditional brick or a modern reflective black glass interior; and a TV can be safely placed 12″ above the opening with no mantel required.

Set the Mood

Stream music or the sound of a crackling fire through optional Bluetooth speakers for a truly immersive experience.  You can set the mood with bold flames and mild heat for year round comfort and enjoyment.

Latest Technology

Phoenix fireplaces incorporate an advanced intermittent pilot ignition system that constantly monitors ignition, ensures safe functioning and conserves up to $10/month in energy costs.

It’s patent-pending “whisper-tone technology” allows airflow with minimal sound, the ability to horizontally terminate, and an automatic damper which stops air movement when the fireplace is off, thus preventing cold air from entering your home.
