Burn only dry (seasoned) wood

Don’t stack logs tightly together – they need space to gather oxygen

Ensure sufficient air within the home is getting to the fireplace (crack a window, if necessary)

Keep your flue clean so smoke can travel up it smoothly

Make sure your flue opening isn’t too small for the fireplace

Make sure your chimney is tall enough (minimum 10 feet high and extending at least two feet from the roof

By you doing your part and letting a certified chimney sweep do his or her part, you can rest easy, knowing your chimney is clean, safe and working at peak performance.

If your home has a furnace system, you should be scheduling annual inspections and necessary furnace cleanings to keep your system running cleanly while preventing safety hazards. While the hazards of a furnace system differ from a wood-burning fireplace system, they are still dangerous. A neglected furnace flue can be dangerous, and one reason is that debris can block the flue and cause soot blowback into the house. The problem can cause carbon monoxide fumes to enter the home, resulting in illness and sometimes even death. A furnace system can also experience similar issues to a wood-burning fireplace system, in that nesting animals can also create blockages to the chimney system. While furnace systems create less particulate matter than wood-burning fireplaces, cleanings are necessary because the venting unit connections need to be removed and cleaned out fully.
