Cold temperatures are gripping the Tri-states and a lot of people will be using wood burning appliances to heat their homes. Cole Miller with the Quincy Fire Department said one of the biggest mistakes people can make when using a wood burning fire place is overloading it and burning it too hot. He said there are ways to burn safely and prevent your house from catching fire. Some fireplaces have glass doors that keep the fire contained while others need a screen in front. "It's mainly to keep sparks, when the fire or wood pops, it keeps the embers from popping out onto the floor which is usually combustible," explained Miller. He also said to make sure the flames in the fireplace have gone out before going to bed or leaving your house. "If you left it open with the screen in front, it's not going to hurt anything but if you're damper is open, you'll be losing a lot of heat in your house. So, you can shut the doors. When it's good and cool you can close the damper and keep the rest of the heat in your house." Miller said you should have your fireplace or wood burning appliance checked out each year just like you would a furnace. Another reminder Miller added was to keep the immediate space around the fireplace free of anything that can catch fire easily. (Link to resources in comments)

A yearly chimney inspection and cleaning is recommended by both the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). Both organizations back up their recommendations with research that shows annual chimney inspections are important safety measures. The primary function of a chimney is to serve as an outlet for combustion gases and smoke that are produced in the wood stove or fireplace. There are two critical questions to be answered in an inspection and both affect whether a chimney is a hazard because it is hindered from working the way it is designed to: Is there a dangerous buildup of creosote and soot? Is the chimney system operating properly, so that there is no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning? Remember that a clean chimney doesn’t catch fire, and a chimney in good working condition will release toxic gases into the outside atmosphere the way it should. You can’t know for sure whether your chimney is clean and safe until a chimney professional has inspected it. Contact us today for your annual inspection! Your partner in safety, Matt Halper
