Fireplaces, stoves, and inserts are known for adding warmth and comfort to a home, but they add a lot in terms of appearance, too! In today’s market, homeowners are given a wide range of options as far as size, color, style, and more, ensuring they always achieve their ideal look. If your heating appliance still appears to be in good shape and looking great, you may think you’re good to go for the holiday season ahead. Unfortunately, outward looks can be deceiving…
A heating appliance may seem to be in fine order, but to a professional eye things could look a lot worse. Things like nesting materials, deterioration or cracks, creosote, and other types of debris can easily build up inside of your system, and it’s important to have the interior system thoroughly checked over every year to ensure there are no signs of damage that could soon spread outward.

Dangers Of Creosote & Build-Up
There is a lot of danger that could be lurking on the inside of a dirty chimney. Creosote, for one, is extremely flammable, and it known for triggering chimney fires. Chimney fires weaken your structure in a hurry, making your system more susceptible to holes and cracking, both of which leave pathways for flames and dangerous fumes to escape.
Other types of build-up cause clogs, which then send smoke and fumes back into your living space. Going to light a fire, only to be faced with a big cloud of smoke is less than ideal. Clogs can also lead to carbon monoxide exposure, which has proven to be fatal on countless occasions. This deadly gas is odorless, colorless, and a huge threat to those without a detector in their homes.
