Our fireplace has always been where we gather to relax and bond over drinks and games when we have friends over.
It’s an additional heating device for our house, and I love it because it reminds me of my grandmother’s house.
While I have been keen on handling heating maintenance for the gas furnace and the backup electric heater, I never thought about it. The HVAC professional once asked about it, and I dismissed his question by saying that we barely used it, so there was no point in servicing it. It didn’t even need a thermostat because we use wood on it, making it hard to control anything about it. When I had a heating technician over for an annual heating equipment servicing visit, everything changed. Of course, I only gave details for the other HVAC installation, but he saw the chimney and asked about it. After much explanation about how it needed to be cleaned, I agreed to have it checked. The heating specialist cleaned the main unit before moving to the fire area. The heating dealership representative also checked for any leaks that would bring water into the house, an issue I was made to understand would create a good environment for mold growth. I was lucky that after all my negligence, there was nothing that needed critical attention, and I didn’t have to worry about the heating repair. The night after all the work was done, I could tell the impressive change from the cleaning, and I loved it so much that I added it to the list of things the heating company specialist has to handle at least once a year.
