We understand the frustration in a smoke filled house. You just wanted a nice quiet evening by the fire and instead you wound up smoking the family room out – again. There are some simple tips to avoid backpuffing from your fireplace. But, if the simple tips don’t work, we recommend bringing in a professional like Valley Chimney Sweep & Restoration to assess, analyze and fix your draft problems.
There are a number of reasons why your fire smokes into your home rather than up your chimney. Whether you have tight home construction, a leaky or poorly built chimney, crooked pipe layout, a blocked passage, air pressure issues, over-dry firewood and/or seasonal changes, we can analyze your drafting issues and make recommendations to get your fire blowing back up your chimney, possibly more efficiently than before.
