Why You Should Avoid Drafting Issues
There are a couple of big reasons why drafting issues should be avoided at all costs. First of all, it makes your living environment uncomfortable and unpleasant. No one wants to be in a room that is filled with smoke, and situations like these quickly ruin the ambiance of get-togethers and social gatherings. Not to mention, you’ll face nasty odors for days.
Secondly, it’s dangerous. Smoke, harmful toxins, and other fumes can cause some serious health issues when people in the household are exposed to them. Loved ones will face painful illnesses, and you’ll find yourself making multiple trips to the doctor trying to clear everyone of any potential problems. This not only causes stress and worry to skyrocket… it also adds more bills to your monthly budget.
Tips For Resolving Draft Issues
As you can see, the time to fix drafting issues is now! And we’ve got solutions that will work for your unique needs. First things first, check your damper. A lot of people are simply not using their damper right or are in need of a new one, thus triggering these drafting issues to occur. This is a fairly easy fix, and one that we can address for you in a jiffy!
Other times, the chimney’s construction is the problem. If your system is too short or if the measurements don’t mesh well with your current fireplace style, then you’ll find yourself with air flow issues. Our CSIA certified technicians can take a look to see if this is the problem and set you up on the right track for making proper modifications.
When was the last time your chimney was swept? If you have clogs or blockages, or if creosote has accumulated to unsafe levels, then it’s likely that smoke and other fumes cannot vent out properly. Having yearly sweeping and inspections can keep your chimney healthy and performing safely throughout the burning season.
