Wood Fireplace Trivia

Tom Smith of London England sold candies in a paper tube in the 1847's. A spark of ingenuity came from the crack of a wood log fireplace. He decided to enlarge his candy tubes and add the "snap-crack" sound that we know today as Christmas and party crackers!

Fire Safety at Home

Large storms during the year can knock out your power possibly for days. We just had a 2 day ice storm hit us just before Christmas. Tens of thousands of families were without power for over five days and many people may not realize that hard wired smoke detectors would not work in the event of a fire!

When we changed out the batteries in our detectors this fall, I thought it would be nice to have hard wired smoke detectors instead. With the recent power outages, we just found a good reason to keep battery operated smoke, fire and carbon monoxide detectors!

Fire Gel Fuel

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) identified safety issues related to the use of firepots and gel fuels, hazards focus on spill or tip over of the unit along with hazards when refueling. Gel fuel disposable cans (not to be refilled) are safer because it removes the re-fueling hazard, but the tip over factor still exists. There will be regulated safety design styles and form improvements. View Gel Fuel Report at Gel Fuel Safety

Electric Fireplaces

Fireplace renovation ideas taking a long time moved on? Well, gas and wood fireplace renovations are more involved, cost more and you might be late in the year depending on the installer, as fireplace demand is up with the early start of a colder winter. Nevertheless, electric fireplaces are a good quick reno alternative as they require less remodeling. Good fireplace option for the summer, keep the flames but turn off the heating.

Electric and Gas Fireplace On

Temperature Fact: Cold like February but it's only January, what's up! Gas fireplace is on and the electric fireplace is heating up the basement nicely. January 22, 2014 in Toronto, Canada at 6am, thermostat reads a cold -20 degrees F (-28.9°C)

Arctic: Is the north sending us their cold air? They seem to be running out! On January 22 at 6:00 am Juneau, the state capital of Alaska, the temperature was a comparatively warm 42°F or 6 C. Go figure!

Natural Gas Fireplace

Existing and new natural gas customers operating fireplaces and gas furnaces have seen gas prices move to some of their lowest levels. This windfall benefit is primarily a result of an increase in gas supply due to hydraulic fracturing processes also called “fracking”. Drilling process injects fluid into the well at a high pressure, fracturing the shale rock layers allowing for the release of more natural gas per well.

Fireplace Romance Idea

No fireplace, but want to plan a romantic evening. Say a special dinner and drinks evening for Valentine's Day. Check around with friends or on the internet for restaurants with fireside tables. Make sure you reserve the table as others may have the same great idea! A fireplace setting is probably the best table in the restaurant.

Gas Fireplace Fan

Gas fireplaces, depending of the model, will provide heat even when the power is out. Propane, and natural gas fireplaces and heating units are a great back up source of heat for power outages in the colder months. The heat blower fan on your gas fireplace can last well over 10 years. Longer if only using the gas fireplace occasionally. During cold weather, turning up the fan's speed will help deliver more warm air into the room faster.

Bed & Breakfast Fireplace Ideas: Don't have a fireplace, traveling out of town to see family on a cold winter weekend? Booking a stay in an older home with an antique fireplace can add ambience to a relaxing night away from home. Having a fireplace is a bonus as bed and breakfast usually don't charge extra. Especially if the fireplace is in your room or you are the only guests that day.

Chimney Repair: Fireplaces Furnaces

Chimney Problems with your fireplace or furnace chimney? Pieces of brick falling off your chimney, mortar joints opening up, getting bricks cracking, chimney starting to lean a little are all signs that you need to do some chimney masonry repairs.

Chimney pictured has been repaired before but why does it continue spalding so badly? One reason is that the chimney does not have a top cap, either concrete or a metal flashing sloped to drain the snow and rain water off the top.

Thus, water or melting snow is absorbed into the brick and winter's thaw and freezing action slowly works away and pops off pieces of brick and mortar.

Fireplace Shopping Idea

Type of fireplace you are considering in your remodel, you have now narrowed down, now it is time to check out some local fireplace showrooms. Before you go, suggest you take a number of photos of the room and the wall where the fireplace is to be installed. If you are installing a gas or wood fireplace, take photos of the outside wall where a chimney maybe used or venting is to installed.

Having fireplace photos will help you communicate with the salesperson at your local fireplace store, what it is you want to do .. they may be able to come up with some suggestions and provide some cost options and numbers while visiting the showrooms.

Fireplace Wood: Season your wood outdoors through the summer for a minimum of 6 or more weeks before burning it in your fireplace. Seasoned wood will darken and develop cracks in the end grains. Will have hollow sound when smacked. Wood burns best once the moisture content is under twenty per cent. There are wood moisture meters to test the dampness content of your wood.

Wood Fireplace Trivia

Fireplace Myths: TV's Myth Busters show, on one of their viewer's choice Xmas specials, set out to challenge the concept that lighting a fire within the fireplace actually decreases the temperature within the other rooms of your house. Yes, it's accurate. Not Busted!

Fireplace Room Combustibles

Home heating units, such as fireplaces, inserts, stoves ... should not have combustible materials within the immediate area. Many recommend that all furniture, decorations and combustible products are a minimum of one meter or three feet away. Remember that is a minimum guide line and objects do fall over or get pushed by kids and/or the family pets.

Fireplace Chimney Repairs

Best time to get chimneys repairs start in the spring, while masons are not that busy yet. Temperatures are moderate allowing the mortar to cure slowly, versus drying out fast on a hot sunny 90 degree summer's day. Autumn is also a good time as most mason's work load slows down and they have more time for relatively smaller chimney repair jobs.

Gas Fireplace Repair

Fireplace blower is probably one of the first components to have to repair. Depending on the age of your gas fireplace, best go back to your local installer, as fireplace manufacturers generally have establish dealerships that supply their fireplaces and service repair parts. If available, quote the make and model number of your gas heating unit, as this will save you time and solve availability issues. Fireplace installers will usually be able to quote you a ball park price, but may want to look at the gas fireplace before establishing a fixed price quote.
