No matter what style and color your fireplace is you cannot keep this on all the time. Keep in mind that this thing is not made for long-time uses. You can shut the fire off before five hours of flame. Other than that, you better not close the door. Opening the door especially when the fire on will help to breathe some air to the chimney. The only part that can be let open is the screen. You don’t want those little sparks to jump onto hardwood or carpeting though.
Before showing your adoration towards the beautiful fireplace ideas, you must understand that hands never belong to an in-use fireplace. Protect your hands with the right tools especially when you take care of the burning logs. Protect yourself before fixing your fireplace.
Another thing you must have is the chimney’s cap. The caps are very useful since they prevent water damage. The cap also keeps animals from not entering the inside as well as keep the debris at bay. Long story short, the chimney’s cap helps to prevent carbon monoxide. Combining the cap and a spark arrester will give an additional safety gear for your fireplace during the winter months.
As has been explained earlier, owning a fireplace gives a sense of glamour both in your home and your heart. Thus, taking care of your fireplace regularly and investing in useful tools will keep everyone safe. Check out these pictures below for more beautiful fireplace ideas to welcome the winter.
