The refractory panels in your firebox are essential for the fireplaces function and appearance. The panels are designed to radiate the heat of the fire into room. They protect against heat transfer to nearby walls and framing. As a result, you’ll more complete combustion, less creosote and smoke. This will give you a warmer, cozier, and safer home.
Refractory panels are made to stand strong, but this doesn’t mean they can’t be damaged. These important panels can crack and deteriorate. These should be repaired ASAP. Your firebox is responsible for holding and containing fire. If cracks are present in the panel walls of the firebox, they won’t contain the fire very well. In fact, heat and even stray sparks and hot ash could transfer to nearby walls through damaged panels. This risk of fire is the reason it’s so important to keep them maintained.
