Summer/Fall Fireplace Maintenance
June 28, 2018
In the Summer, it is the perfect opportunity to get started on fireplace maintenance so that your fireplace can be ready for the Fall season. While it is not necessary to do any of these things, it may be a good thing to make sure you get up to date with your maintenance, so that nothing goes wrong in the future. Let’s take a look at some of the things you can get ahead on in the summer season.
- Cleanings: One of the things you may want to look into is getting a cleaning, or manually cleaning the entire fireplace. This can help to ensure that there is no additional smoke, or ash clogging the fireplace. This is typically just for a wood fireplace, but can be an opportunity to work on the cleanliness of the gas and electric fireplace in terms of the screens, as they can get a little bit dirty over time.
- Damper: In the summertime, you will want to make sure that your damper is closed. The reason for this is that it has a massive effect on the efficiency of your home. One of the things it can affect is your electric bill, because it can increase the bill extensively. Closing the damper can work to ensure that this air does not escape.
- Serviced: The perfect time to get your fireplace serviced is in the summer. It can work to make sure that all the connections are in place, meaning that there is no chance of there being a gas leak in your home.
