Get Your Fireplace Ready For Winter


Colder days are here to stay and it’s time to get your fireplace roaring again. Before you fill your home with the warmth and smell of a cracking fire, though, there are some precautions you should take.

 

1. Check the Chimney: Have you called a chimney sweep recently? Experts recommend you have your chimney cleaned once a year. A fireplace is only as good as its chimney, so make sure you have it cleaned and inspect the exterior structure to make sure there are no obvious issues there as well.

 

2. Open the Flue: Ever started a fire and had the room fill with smoke? If you’re new to fireplaces, you may not realize that this happens when the flue is closed. Many people close them in order to keep out small animals when their fireplaces aren’t in use. Simply look up and reach for a chain or lever to open it back up.

 

3. Vacuum: A quick vacuuming of the flue, smoke shelf, and the surrounding hearth is the last step to preparing for fabulous fires for many months to come.

 

If you’re about to be without a fireplace in the upcoming winter months, we have plenty of homes that could have you curling up by the fire in no time!
