"We’re all looking forward to using our fireplaces this year during the first cold snap," said Josh Cate, owner of TN Fireplace & Chimney. "Whether you are planning to start up the fireplace for warmth or for comfort, plans can be ruined by a fireplace that fills your home with smoke because of a clogged chimney or broken flue. These common problems are often easily fixed if found before a fire is started."
There are many ways a fireplace or fireplace stove can malfunction, and if a homeowner isn’t careful about maintaining it, a family get-together or a cozy evening at home can turn into a messy and expensive clean-up activity.
Here’s five ways to help prepare your fireplace for a safe and comfortable winter:
"I can’t stress enough the importance of early fireplace and stove maintenance," Cate said. "Animals can make nests or pass away in chimneys during the summer, posing a real risk when starting that first fire. Spending time proactively prepping your fireplace in early fall makes sure you have a safe and comfortable fireplace to enjoy all season long."
