The temperatures in Calgary are (slowly) dropping, and Fall is the time to really take on your fireplace maintenance, so that you're ready for the winter weather when it arrives. Regular maintenance on your fireplace each year will ensure it's always working properly, and save you money from future repairs.
- Clean the chimney, creosote and ash can be fire hazards when you go to light it.
- Replace any broken or deteriorated lining.
- Have the appliance serviced by a qualified technician, this will prevent permanent damages from occurring so it's worth the cost.
- The airways of both the pilot and main burners should be regularly cleaned.
