IS YOUR CHIMNEY SAFE?
According to the US Fire Administration (a division of FEMA), heating fires were the second leading cause of house fires from 2002 to 2004, and confined heating fires (fires which are confined to a chimney or flue or were the result of fuel burner or boiler malfunction) accounted for 86% of heating fires in the US. The bottom line it that it is incredibly important to keep your fireplace, furnace, boiler and chimney in safe working order.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the leading authority on fire, electrical and building safety, recommends that all chimneys in the United States be inspected annually to make sure they are in safe operating condition.
