Types of Fireplaces
There are several different types of fuel-powered fireplaces and installations, namely gas, electric, and wood-burning, so the prices differ quite a bit. While one type might be cheaper to install, another might be cheaper to run over the years and last longer.

With gas fireplaces, you don’t have to worry about getting up to throw more wood on a dying fire, while installing a wood-burning stove or fireplace in your home can provide an additional source of heat that is electricity and gas free.

Fireplace Installation Cost
A new gas, wood-burning, electric, or masonry fireplace firebox unit costs between $1,100 and $2,800, or about $1,800 on average. Professional installation and finishing add $800 to $2,800, or about $2,100 on average, bringing your overall cost to install a fireplace at $1,900 to $5,600. These prices are before any veneer, hearth, or mantel is added


Electric Fireplace Installation Cost
An electric fireplace costs $800 to $4,200 or more, and the installation labor ranges from $1500 to $3650. Labor costs will only come up if you need to install a new outlet, for about $150 to 4600, or if it needs to sit in or be attached to a wall.

A handyman charges $110 to $165 per hour with a minimum service fee of $110–$125. Otherwise, you can just plug it in. If you wish to place an electric firebox into a masonry fireplace, you’ll close off the chimney and the damper and add a frame and trim around the new firebox.

Electric fireplaces are safe and more practical than traditional open-hearth fireplaces. Electric fireplaces run on 1,500 watts of electricity, which costs $0.15 per hour on average. They require no clearance between combustible materials (like paneling, walls, or wood) and themselves, because they maintain a cool exterior.

Also, electric fireplaces don’t require a chimney or hearth and can add a high aesthetic value to a room. They are better at heating rooms, as their heat does not escape up a chimney.

Cost To Build a Fireplace
Building a new masonry fireplace cost between $3,500 to $5,600 on average. The cost to install a prefabricated brick fireplace is $2,000 to $3,000, whereas an authentic mason-built brick fireplace can cost $10,000 or more.

Cost To Build Outdoor Fireplace
An outdoor fireplace costs $140 to $3,500 or more before installation. Masonry and chimney construction typically adds $1,000 to $8,000 to your cost. Indoor and outdoor models are built the same way, but outdoor models are more flexible on fireplace codes. Additional charges may come with masonry work used to build a surround structure of the firebox, such as a hearth. An outdoor fireplace is an excellent alternative to a firepit.

Is Wood-Burning Fireplaces Permitted in Your Area?
Ask your local fire department or Homeowners Association (HOA) for building code requirements about the new construction of a wood-burning fireplace. Some counties only allow fireplace remodels, while others require a fireplace permit to limit the number of new builds per year.

All manufactured wood-burning fireplaces must meet EPA PM emission standards as established in 1990. Most states prohibit the sale or use of any wood-burning fireplace that doesn’t meet standards. Your state or county may have No Burn Days—when you will not be able to operate your fireplace on certain days for air quality control.
