Make Your Home and Pittsfield a Safer Place

Every year, according to statistics from the NFPA, more than 12,000 Americans die in residential fires. Because of the risks associated with fires, it is important to take steps to prepare your fireplace for the fall and winter. Without taking the proper precautions, an accident can result in a devastating fire that could rob you of the things that are really precious to you, some of which could be irreplaceable.

The most important thing you can do, if you haven’t done so already, is schedule an appointment with a qualified chimney service company to have your chimney inspected and cleaned. The leading cause of fires in wood-burning appliances is creosote (unburned fuel) buildup in the chimney. Burning big, hot fires instead of small, smoky or wet ones will virtually eliminate the likelihood of excessive amounts of creosote building up in your chimney, and scheduling an annual cleaning provides extra peace of mind that’ll help you sleep a little easier at night.

Chimney system repairs are like death and taxes—they’re inevitable. Making those minor repairs as soon as problems arise will help you prevent (or at least postpone) major chimney system repairs. Some parts are exposed to the elements more than others and are adversely affected by them, while other parts are exposed to the heat of your fires, thereby causing them to wear out faster. Either way you cut it, these parts will inevitably need to be replaced at one point or another.
