Best Fireplace Safety Tip — Schedule Fireplace Maintenance
Before enjoying an indoor fire for the first time this season, follow the most important fireplace safety tip and schedule professional fireplace maintenance. A yearly inspection and cleaning can help ensure that everything is operating safely, efficiently and reliably.
An indoor fireplace can add ambiance and provide warmth but it’s crucial that its been properly inspected and doesn’t pose as a safety hazard. Both the chimney and flue should be cleaned, the fireplace mantle should be checked for cracks and the gas-start should be inspected for possible leaks.
Another benefit of yearly fireplace maintenance is that it can improve heat efficiency by ensuring there are no drafts or leaks. During annual inspection, a technician can also check the fireplace fan to see if it’s operating efficiently. A certified fireplace technician can also make recommendations for upgrades that could help increase efficiency and overall home comfort.
Some homeowners rely on a fireplace to provide heat during a power outage, so they need it to be reliable. Scheduling fireplace maintenance every year can help spot problems early and give homeowners confidence that they’ll always have a source of heat—even during a harsh Ottawa storm.
