Wintertime should be a fun and exciting time when it comes to utilizing your fireplace and something you should be able to look forward to; below are some simple habits to help keep your chimney efficient, healthy and happy this holiday season:
By keeping sure your chimney is well insulated help prevent heat from escaping and energy to leak through. Liners can provide maximum protection for your chimney as well as gasses that can be released through the flue.
Regular Chimney Inspection & Sweeps!
Having your chimney swept and inspected at least once a year by a professional is vital to your health and safety. You as well as many others will want to fire up your chimney once the cooler weather hits so make sure you are ahead of the crowd and schedule your appointment with us earlier in the year.
Setting up a Seal!
Making sure to have a seal installed before the summer and winter months can save you money and energy in the long run. During the summer months, the seal will keep the colder A/C inside and during the winter months, keep the warm air inside from escaping.
By following all the steps above and being consistent about your chimney’s maintenance, you will make for a healthy and efficient fireplace. By making sure your chimney is cared for prior to the winter season reduces the stress and hassle of having to schedule a professional to come out last minute. We recommend you take your chimney’s upkeep seriously and trust us to provide you with top notch service.
