It’s fireplace and wood stove weather – and that means now is the time to check your chimney to be sure it’s fire safe. At the minimum, it’s important to have your chimney inspected and cleaned. HouseLogic notes that this is a safety issue, as well as a good way to improve efficiency. Your inspection could also reveal the need to install a liner, a safeguard that can protect your home from heat transfer to combustibles. This article from the Chimney Safety Institute of America explains why installing a liner is one of the most important things you can do to protect your home and family. Schedule your inspection soon, so you can enjoy that roaring fire before the deep freeze sets in.
