The following steps will keep you enjoying safe heat year-round:

 

Absolutely nothing beats the raw aesthetics that a wood-burning fireplace bring to the home. Well maybe one thing, that being the heat of course. Although the fire is self-contained within the unit, we want to make sure that it stays that way.

 

Annual Inspection and Maintenance

Make sure to take the time each year to have your wood-burning fireplace inspected by a certified installer much like those within The Fireside Group. The keeps efficiency and safety on par always.

 

Watch for Smoke Buildup

Smoke buildup is a tell tale sign that something is wrong. If your wood is burning correctly your should not see thick smoke. Darker smoke is an indication that your fire is burning inefficiently.

 

Have a Certified Fireplace

New fireplaces are required to be certified with an EPA rating. This meets national safety ratings, ensuring you are using the safest and most efficient product.

 

Burn the Right Wood

Dry wood is the first place to start as it limits that blinding smoke buildup. Next, its ideal to start your fire with a softwood like pine, then switch to a longer burning hardwood. This capitalizes on burning speeds, maintaining an effortless flame all evening long!
