There is nothing pleasant about unwanted smoke seeping into your home through your fireplace. Some factors can cause smoke that escapes through the fireplace opening. If you are experiencing this, your chimney may need to be cleaned. Creosote build up in the chimney can reduce the flow of exhaust gases which can cause fireplace smoke. A shattered flue can also cause drafting problems. Our technicians can inspect your chimney for damage and clean out the vent. Another cause could be due to how well your home is insulated. An airtight house may not be able to supply enough outside air to the fire which results in negative pressure inside the house.
