When Nothing But A Wood-Burning Fireplace Will Do
For all of the fireplace industry’s new-fangled advances, many of our customers insist on having a wood-burning fireplace. The crackle of the burning embers, the earthy smell, the heat—other fireplaces can’t quite hold a candle. Even the age-old task of chopping and hauling logs has some allure. And while we can certainly speak to the advantages of gas fireplaces, inserts, and gas logs, (which tend to be relatively low maintenance), we very much understand that, for many, there is simply nothing that beats the charm, warmth, and authenticity of a real wood-burning fireplace.
If you live in the Fort Payne, Alabama area and have a wood-burning fireplace or stove that needs maintenance, or if you would like to have one installed, call The Fireplace Service Company. We have been in business since 1981, are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), and are members of the Hearth Patio and Barbecue Association (HPBA) and the National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG). We can be trusted to provide your wood-burning fireplace with exactly the service it needs so that you will have an efficient and attractive fireplace to enjoy during the cold seasons.
Wood Fireplace Maintenance
As custodian of a wood-burning fireplace, you will need to have your chimney inspected and cleaned annually, as there is a byproduct of burning wood (called creosote) that builds up and is highly flammable if not removed each year by a professional. All major fire safety and national chimney organizations agree that annual attention by a certified chimney sweep is necessary for safety.
It is also highly recommended that you have a top-sealing damper or chimney cap installed atop your chimney. This will help to keep rainwater and animals out, and will also help keep your chimney liner in great condition so that it remains impervious to water and to the high heat to which it is exposed.
