A Better Chimney
January 2016Thanks to the team from A BETTER CHIMNEY in Silver City, NM for a job well done! We are very pleased with their installation of an efficient gas fireplace insert. Last winter, our first in Silver City, we realized that all of our heat was going up the chimney due to the open gas logs originally installed in our home so we relied entirely on a gas furnace for heat with the gas logs serving a purely decorative purpose. Glad to report that our home is now toasty warm with a nice place to cozy up to after being outside thanks to our new gas fireplace insert having a blower. So glad it has a thermostat too! Again, thanks to the team from A BETTER CHIMNEY for a job well done." - http://abetterchimneynm.com/Warmest WishesMack and Bea McKinneySilver City, NM

Tips & Advices
As part of regular home maintenance, you can look for signs up build-up or debris accumulating in a fireplace. n addition to practicing safe wood burning and cleaning the in-home structure, you can also use a flashlight on occasion to inspect for any obvious cracks or blockage. Strong smells emanating from the fireplace when not in use may be an indication of the need to consult with a professional who can handle the broader inspection and any major issues that arise from it.
It can be dangerous not to have your chimney inspected from the interior, since only a licensed professional can detect things like creosote build-up or a defective damper. Failing to address such issues can, at the very least, reduce the efficiency of airflow within your home, and at worst, lead to a fire.
Most inspectors are called chimney cleaning professionals these days, but the term chimney sweep traditionally refers to the person who evaluates the flue, damper and roof, and then cleans them from the inside. A certified chimney sweep will also inspect your fireplace and the room in which it operates, checking for any structural inefficiencies or signs of leakage. When looking to hire a chimney cleaner, it’s best to seek one who is certified by the CSIA or NCSG.
A chimney flue is essentially a duct that runs from the fireplace to the top of the chimney, helping convey the gas and heat out of the home. It must be properly sealed in order to protect the home and withstand the exhaust that passes through.
The damper is the device that seals the chimney shut when it is not in use. It usually operates as a small flap inside the flue, helping retain warm air and insulate the home, even when there is no fire going.
