A wood-burning fireplace is a wonderful addition to any home. Not only do fireplaces create a warm and cosy area to gather around during the cooler months, they also increase the overall property value of your home. Follow the tips by the experts at Faitsch Products to keep your fireplace in tip-top condition.
Use dry wood: It’s important to always burn dry wood in a wood-burning fireplace. Burning wet wood can cause a creosote build-up, which may result in a fire hazard, as well as a reduction of heat output. Moist wood should be allowed to dry for at least one year.
Keep it in tip-top condition: It’s advisable to hire a professional installer to inspect your fireplace. This is in addition to regular cleaning and maintenance.
Go with the professionals: Always use professional installers and high-quality chimneys. Professionals will ensure that a safety-compliant chimney is installed. It is important to have a properly insulated chimney, with the correct height (which guarantees proper draft as well as minimal condensing water) to ensure the extended lifespan of the chimney and fireplace.
