Fireplaces Need Regular Attention Too
In the colder months, sometimes you want just a little more heat to make things extra cozy. For most people, that means curling up in front of the fire. We’re all for that, just as long as you do it safely.
Much like your heating and cooling system requires regular maintenance, your fireplace needs regular attention too. Schedule regular inspections for your fireplace to make sure there aren’t any necessary repairs. A Martino HVAC technician can help while making sure your fireplace doesn’t have excess soot and your home is properly insulated.
And of course, whenever you’re not using your fireplace, be sure to keep the damper closed. An open damper can let indoor air pollutants into your home and let the warm or cool air out, leading to higher energy bills.
