Winter Season: Heating and Fireplace Safety

Winter Season: Heating and Fireplace Safety

Each fall and winter season, WPFD responds to several emergency calls and home fires involving fireplaces, chimneys and home heaters. The use of combustible fuel inside a home is a traditional and effective way to battle freezing temperatures. Not only does a fireplace or wood stove feel great on a chilly night, it also take some of the pressure of your home heating system by reducing the dependence on costly electric or propane/natural gas heating units; However, using an alternative heating source comes with some big responsibilities to ensure that they are properly maintained and operating in a safe manner.  Keeping your fireplace, wood stove, pellet stove, and chimney/stovepipe clean is of the highest importance.  Failure to get your homes fire fueled heat system inspected and cleaned each year can lead to prevent potential leaks of fire, smoke, and harmful gases from the exhaust system (vent or chimney) into the home or attic causing dangerous conditions. Don’t risk fire, loss of your home, or death from carbon-monoxide leaks. Get your system inspected and cleaned to ensure your home is ready for a full cold season of safe heating!
