A home energy audit is your first step in making your home more efficient, safer and more comfortable. An audit can help you determine how much energy your home uses and also evaluates the measures you should take to improve efficiency.

Audits alone don’t save energy! You need to implement all the recommended improvements in order to reach maximum efficiency and comfort.

Fireplace Safety Tips

Fireplace Safety Tips

Here are some helpful Fireplace Safety Tips from HealthyChildren.org

  • If possible, keep a window cracked open while the fire is burning.
  • Be certain the damper or flue is open before starting a fire. Keeping the damper or flue open until the fire is out will draw smoke out of the house. The damper can be checked by looking up into the chimney with a flashlight or mirror. Do not close the damper until the embers have completely stopped burning.
  • Use dry and well-aged wood. Wet or green wood causes more smoke and contributes to soot buildup in the chimney. Dried wood burns with less smoke and burns more evenly
  • Smaller pieces of wood placed on a grate burn faster and produce less smoke.
  • Clean out ashes from previous fires. Levels of ash at the base of the fireplace should be kept to 1 inch or less because a thicker layer restricts the air supply to logs, resulting in more smoke.
  • The chimney should be checked annually by a professional. Even if the chimney is not due for cleaning, it is important to check for animal nests or other blockages that could prevent smoke from escaping.
  • Make sure the area around the fireplace is clear of anything that is potentially flammable (ie: furniture, drapes, newspapers, books, etc.). If these items get too close to the fireplace, they could catch fire.
  • Never leave a fire in the fireplace unattended. Make sure it is completely out before going to bed or leaving the house. If you leave the room while the fire is burning or the fireplace is still hot, take your small child with you.
  • Minimize your child’s chance of burns from the hot glass front of some fireplaces. Safety screens can be installed to reduce the risk of burns.
  • Put fireplace tools and accessories out of a young child’s reach. Also, remove any lighters and matches.
  • Install both smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Test them monthly and change the batteries at least once a year.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher on hand.

Tips For Using Your New Fireplace

At Henges Insulation & Fireplaces we carry a large variety of fireplaces (direct vent, B-vent, wood burning, outdoor and electric) and wood burning stoves to suit any building or home. We professionally install Majestic fireplaces, Vermont Castings fireplaces and stoves, and Country Flame flex fuel stoves and wood burning fireplaces. Our field technicians not only install fireplaces, they have the knowledge and experience to diagnose and perform fireplace repairs and tune-ups on nearly any unit.

Tips For Using Your New Fireplace

Tips For Using Your New Fireplace

  • Remove the plastic from trim parts before turning the new fireplace ON.
  • It is normal for fireplaces fabricated of steel to give off some expansion and/or contraction noises during the start up or cool down cycle. Similar noises are found with your furnace heat exchanger or car engine.
  • It is not unusual for your gas fireplace to give off some odor the first time it is burned.  This is due to the curing of the paint and any undetected oil from the manufacturing process.
  • Please ensure that your room is well-ventilated – open all windows.
  • Burn your fireplace for at least 10 hours the first time you use it.  If the optional fan kit has been installed, place the fan switch in the “OFF” position during this time.  This will help minimize odors in future use.
