As we approach the winter months,
heating systems will begin to kick on and energy
bills will start to climb. While some will depend on
the fireplace to take away the extra chill, many
fireplaces are reserved for special occasions and
will remain inactive for much of the winter season.
Metal chimney dampers are typically used to prevent
heat loss when fireplaces are not in use.
Unfortunately, most chimney dampers are not air-tight
and begin to warp over time. This creates a path for
warm air within the home to escape out of the
chimney. Now is the time to educate homeowners on
clever ways to keep the home warm in the winter
without spending more than they need to. One product
that can make this transition easier is the
inflatable chimney balloon.
Insulation Tips | What to look for
Insulating attics, knee walls,
basements, and crawlspaces are important steps to
take while improving the overall efficiency of a
home. However, insulating these areas without using
the proper materials and procedures can cause major
health and safety concerns. Before insulating, it is
important to look for flue pipes, chimneys,
non-IC-rated can lighting, and any other heat generating
elements that can be potential fire hazards.
