    How to Prepare Your Fireplace for Cold Winter Days – And Warm Nights by the Fire


    As sunny summer days have given way to crisp autumn air, you might not want to think about winter just yet. But with its cold, snowy weather also come the cozy comforts of steamy hot chocolate, warm flannel blankets and snuggling by the fireplace. And it is important to start preparing your home and your chimney now before the shovels and snowmen come out to play.
    Harsh weather can be equally harsh on your chimney, but proper maintenance like chimney sweeping and cleaning will help keep it in tip-top shape – inside and out. It can even help lower your energy bills while keeping your family safe and warm.

    Here are a few simple tips to help you get started now:

    • Have your chimney inspected: The National Fire Protection Association recommends that chimneys, fireplaces and vents be inspected at least once a year. Loose or cracked brick and mortar can absorb both fire’s heat and outdoor moisture, causing damage to your chimney and roof. Internal debris and obstruction can create fire and Carbon Monoxide hazards.
    • Hire a local professional chimney sweeping service: Highly flammable creosote and soot build up inside your chimney’s lining every time you use your fireplace. The higher that build-up, the higher the danger of chimney or house fires – and the longer it builds up, the more difficult and expensive it gets to clean. Having it swept regularly by trained professionals can significantly cut long-term and risk.
    • Make sure your vents are properly working: Chimney venting is vital to the safe use of your fireplace. Without it, air and smoke can’t properly flow or be exhausted, increasing safety risk and potential damage.
