There are quite a few components that go into a functioning chimney and fireplace. If you are not sure that your chimney is safe for the coming winter’s use the best time to get it looked at is now.

Now is the best time to get anything that needs fixing handled as you will then be able to use your fireplace safely in the winter and have nothing to worry about regarding its function.
A few things that you can take a look at to see if there are any signs of damage are there any cracks or chips in the mortar or bricks in the fireplace? Some fireplaces are prefabricated and in this you would be looking at the refractory panel, the façade brick lining in the fireplace, if any of these are cracked they need to be replaced. These refractory panels are in place to help chimney cap Denver buffer the heat that comes from the fire and protect the metal firebox from overheating and warping. When this happens you are putting yourself and your home at great risk for fire.
Another thing to look it is if you have a chimney cap in place. Properly made and installed chimney caps are vital to the performance and safety of chimney cap Denver. With a chimney cap in place you are helping the heat vent out of the chimney along with helping your fireplace draft properly. Without a chimney cap or with one that is deteriorated or improperly installed there is also the chance that birds and animals can get into the chimney and use it for a nesting space, this brings with it the nesting materials.

There are two solutions to this, getting your chimney cleaned and getting a chimney cap with animal guard installed to keep the animals out.
