The Warmth And Beauty Of Wood In Trinity County
Wood is inextricably linked to the landscape and beauty of Trinity County, from the fir- and pine-tree spotted slopes to mountain logging tracks and wilderness escapes.
Understandably, wood-burning fireplaces and stoves are popular in Trinity County, and at White Glove, we’ve dedicated ourselves to providing diligent care to many a Trinity County heating appliance through the years.
The Needs Of A Wood-burning Appliance
Wood-burning fireplaces and stoves have been around for a long time, and wood remains a well-loved fuel for a lot of reasons — it’s affordable, abundant, renewable, it doesn’t rely on electricity in order to provide warmth, and you can’t deny the classic charm of a crackling wood fire, either. Keeping a wood-burning appliance working optimally does take regular maintenance and good burning practices, though.
When you burn fuel in your wood-burning appliance, creosote develops in your flue as a byproduct, and if it isn’t regularly removed, it can create draft issues, foul smells, blockages, even fire hazards. So it’s important to have your chimney swept regularly — it’s part of a two-pronged effort that helps keep your chimney functioning as efficiently and safely as you need it to.
The second prong is your annual chimney inspection. Regular inspections allow White Glove technicians to find any budding issues that can detract from your chimney’s ability to do its job, whether that’s damaged masonry or a failing flue liner. With regular inspections, we can catch and repair small problems before they become big ones, and keep you using your fireplace with peace of mind.
In between inspection and sweeping appointments, you can do a lot to help your system work well, including only burning seasoned or kiln-dried wood (if you’re not purchasing seasoned wood, drying for six months to a year is a good rule of thumb) and making sure your flue is completely open every time you light a fire. But if problems arise — from chimney leaks to draft issues — White Glove is always ready to help. Just give us a call!
