Preventive maintenance now gives you confidence that your fireplace or stove will be the comfort you expect in the fall and winter. You know your family is.” is safer, too. “

Cate recommends homeowners include the following in their summer home maintenance schedule:

  • Cleaning the chimney: Remove the ashes from the chimney to improve the air quality.
  • Close the hatch: Keeping the hatch of a wood-burning stove or fireplace closed will prevent cool air conditioning from coming out and cut off an entrance for bats, birds and other animals.
  • Check the fireplace lid: These metal and mesh guards keep dirt and animals from getting into the fireplace without affecting ventilation. They also protect the roof from embers.
  • Schedule an Inspection and Cleaning: An annual professional inspection and cleaning will help keep your fireplace and fireplace in top condition and ensure efficiency, reliability and comfort.

You also run the risk of fire, carbon monoxide, and other air quality issues. Additionally, winter is the busiest time of year when If you wait until the cold weather to make an appointment it can be difficult to get timely service. You can avoid these delays by dealing with them now. “
