Top Fireplace Installation related questions

Fireplace installation costs range from $118-$390. Fireplace repairs sometimes cost less than this, while major installations requiring extra masonry work often cost more. The type of fireplace you choose can also affect the cost. For example, electric fireplace installation costs are around $2,500. Wood burning fireplaces may cost around $9,500. Specify the details of your task and get a free quote when booking a Tasker for fireplace installation in your area.

Yes. If you’re installing a wood fireplace or wood heater, you’ll need a chimney installed as part of the service. Make sure you confirm this with your technician when you book.

Yes. Gas and electric fireplaces don’t require chimneys as they don’t produce smoke.

While fireplace or wood heater installations in Australia need to comply with Australian Standard AS/NAS 2918, the service is unregulated. So your fireplace installer does not need to have any qualifications in installing fireplaces, although a professional fireplace installer may have completed a unit of study (Install domestic solid fuel burning appliances) if they’re a qualified plumber.

Fireplace installations can take as little as 4 hours for an electric fireplace up to one week for a wood fireplace installation.

This depends on what your priorities are, whether aesthetics, heat, efficiency, or convenience. Wood heaters offer great heating efficiency compared to the alternatives, while a wood fireplace is a classic look, and gas/electric are generally low-maintenance options. Discuss with your Tasker about your fireplace options, so they can provide the best quote for the job.

What does fireplace installation include?

Fireplace installations include help with any of the steps involved in setting up your fireplace, from choosing your heater to installing your chimney. And fireplace repairs include all sorts of tasks, like fixing a tile, unblocking your chimney, and repairing a door hinge. The exact inclusions will depend on the type of fireplace or heater you choose, but the most common ones are:

Wood fireplace installation

Fireplaces are built into your home’s structure, so the process of installing or repairing a wood fireplace or chimney is often quite involved. Your handyman will build around your fireplace unit, using timber, plasterboard, stone, bricks, and other materials to form the structure. They’ll set up a suitable chimney system based on the airflow and thermal dynamics in your building. They’ll tightly seal this to prevent smoke from coming back inside your home.

Wood heater installation

Your installer will start by positioning your hearth (usually made from brick, ceramic tile, or concrete) to provide a firm, safe base for your wood heater. Next, they’ll install your unit, connecting the flues (inside and outside, on your roof) to carry the smoke outside of your home.

Gas fireplace installation

Once you’ve chosen the best gas fireplace for your space (whether against a wall, built-in, freestanding, or inside your existing fireplace structure), your installer will help organise the gas line connection. If you don’t already have gas service to your place, they’ll arrange the connection or gas bottle delivery. Next, your fireplace installer will assemble all the parts, including the unit and flues. They’ll cut holes to place the flues through the ceiling and roof, ensuring all gaps are tightly sealed to prevent leaks and damage. Then they’ll connect up your gas and test your newly installed fireplace to make sure it works perfectly.

Electric fireplace installation

Your electric fireplace installer will start by plugging in and testing the fireplace to make sure it works. Then they’ll cut a wall opening to fit your fireplace. Next, they’ll connect up the power supply (you may need a licensed electrician for this step). Then it’s time to lift the fireplace unit into the wall opening before securing it into the wall studs with screws. Finally, they’ll install any decorations (like logs) that come with your fireplace and install the front glass panel.
