Summer is the perfect time for Chimney Cleanings and Inspections

Joseph Coupal - Friday, June 03, 2011

Summer is just around the corner and thank goodness we aren’t using our fireplaces for a while. This is the perfect time to schedule your chimney cleaning or inspection.

A clean chimney is a safe chimney. The type of wood you burn plays a large part in if you need to have your chimney cleaned. Burning green, wet wood makes your chimney need cleaning more often than dry, seasoned wood. However, chimney sweeping is an unregulated business. For this reason, people need to ask some questions, understand more, and be very vigilant when contracting someone to clean their chimney.

Your chimney should be cleaned and inspected every year to ensure that it is functioning properly, free of blockages, and safe for use. Additionally, if you are purchasing a new home, you are surely having a home inspection, consider a chimney inspection as well.

Even if you don't plan to use the fireplace, you should still have an expert inspect the chimney to make sure there aren't any leaks. If you are using central AC or heating, air could slowly escape through the chimney, leading to high utility bills. There are many potential dangers with chimneys, the most obvious problem in an older home being deterioration. The chimney itself or the flue liner could be slowly decaying. If you are planning on using the chimney, you want to fix a decaying chimney so gases cannot leak into your home and to keep flames and sparks contained within the fireplace and chimney.

At Fireplace Showcase our trained, knowledgeable, and licensed technicians have the knowledge and experience to handle any job, big or small.

Chimney Caps Protect Your Chimney from Nesting Birds

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 05, 2011

The warmer weather is on its way, and like many in Massachusetts, you love your hearths, but cannot wait to stop heating your home and open the windows. For many, the time to shut down and clean up the fireplace is just as fun as the first time we light it for the season.  It is time to clean out and clean up your fireplaces, stovesinserts and chimneys.
 
Chimney Caps are an integral part of the venting system for your fireplace and the venting system is an integral part of your overall fireplace system. The weather and the wildlife are the biggest enemies of your chimney. The birds are out and trying to find a great place to make their nests, what better place than your cozy, dark chimney. Birds and other animals contribute to your chimneys’ demise. All kinds of animals like to make their homes in chimneys especially if the fireplace has not been used for a couple of years.
 
When chimneys are not correctly sealed, moisture gets into the cracks and seams and can ruin the chimney. Brick chimneys are extremely susceptible. This is where chimney caps can provide extra protection. Chimney caps protect against all types of weather and wind, all of which can erode a chimney. Chimney caps can really prolong the structural integrity of a chimney.

If chimney caps are not in place this spring, the risk from weather and animals is dramatically increased. There are different kinds of chimney caps for masonry or stainless steel chimneys. And Fireplace Showplace can help you decide which style is best for your home.

Get Free Fuel with the New 2011 Tax Credit for Hearth Products

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Save energy costs and contribute to a greener Earth by heating all or part of your home with biomass fuels. U.S. homeowners who purchase a 75%-efficient biomass (wood or pellet) burning stove, fireplace or insert during 2011 can receive a U.S. federal tax credit for 10% of their cost, up to $300.

Most of The Fireplace Showcase's heating products qualify for the tax credit. Featuring the industry’s most advanced technologies for heat efficiencies, these products are also protected by a limited lifetime warranty. There are many designs and styles to choose from that will provide ambience, warmth and comfort to your home.

For tax years 2006-2011, there is a $500 cap on home efficiency tax credits claimed by a single consumer. For example, if you claimed $300 in 2007, you can claim only $200 in 2011. It is important to note, however, that a consumer who claimed a $1,500 tax credit as part of the 2009/2010 tax credit, will benefit from the full amount but is not eligible for the new $300 credit.
