Fireplaces are often the focal point in a home. It helps to create an aesthetic that’s perfect for comfortable evenings in, large holiday gatherings, or small get-together with friends. Cozy up to a warm fire is a wonderful activity. That is, if your fireplace is in a good shape and works efficiently. If you’ve been noticing less heat from your system, the fault could lie with your firebox. Luckily, our CSIA-certified team have solutions to solve this!
What Is The Firebox?
The firebox is where your fires are built and burned and, as you can imagine, this area takes on a lot of wear and tear. Things like excess heat, too much exposure to moisture, and neglect can take their toll over time. These can all cause the firebox to break down and be less efficient.
Fortunately, there are things you can do to ensure the materials that make up your firebox stay protected. Preventative maintenance and regular upkeep definitely help to keep your brickwork and mortar from cracking, help it to contain the fire, and also give you peace of mind knowing heat, fire, and smoke won’t spread through your fireplace. On top of all that, you’ll get more heat output for your living space.
Needless to say, investing in these preventative maintenance now will save you a lot of time, money, and stress down the road.
