Your stove needs to be properly maintained and cleaned on an annual basis. This work is necessary to keep the system safe as well as to ensure efficient operation. You probably already knew that since we are dealing with fire. What you may not know is that the summer months of July and August is the perfect time to have your pellet stove or wood stove cleaned.
By having your stove cleaned in the summer means, your stove will be ready to go when the cooler days of fall arrive. Scheduling a stove cleaning in August also will be easier to do, because once September and October roll around, we get very busy servicing homeowners who waited until the last minute.
When you schedule a cleaning in August to get your system ready for fall and winter, you’ll enjoy the following benefits.
1. Reduced fire hazard
By cleaning your stove at any point during the year you are reducing the chance of a fire. When burning pellets or wood, creosote is released. Excess creosote buildup that ignites is one of the leading causes of house fires every year America.
2. When the cold hits your stove is ready to burn
By getting your wood stove or pellet stove cleaned in July or August you are planning ahead. No waiting for a technician to get to your home. Your stove will be ready to burn once the cold hits.
3. Decrease the chances of carbon monoxide poisoning
Burning wood and pellets create carbon monoxide, an odorless, invisible gas that is poisonous to humans and animals. This gas can easily infiltrate your home if your vent is obstructed from creosote or other debris.. A clean chimney means smoke and gasses move into the outside air.
Everything we listed here is important but so is your peace of mind. When you have a professional clean and inspect your stove , you’ll be able to relax, knowing you are all set as the colder months approach.
