Not all fire appliances are created equally, and neither are the repairs for them. When it comes to the chimney industry, you probably don’t hear too much about wood stoves, and there is a good reason! Many wood stoves in need of repairs are old and less efficient than new models.

Issues with Blowers
When your blower stops working, your fire will still burn and the chimney will still vent, however, the efficiency of your stove drop significantly as a heat source. The blower pushes the heat out into your living space, turning your fire into a heat machine. Your wood stove needs a specific blower, and it should be ordered and installed by a professional. Make sure you call a certified chimney sweep for all of your fire appliance and chimney repairs!
A gasket is often overlook since it’s not high on the priority list, but it can affect the overall efficiency of your stove. The gasket keeps the door of your stove closed tightly. If your gasket is damaged, loose, or missing, you are probably using more energy than necessary to heat your house, and you may be exposing yourself and your family to carbon monoxide. Do you use your wood stove everyday? If you use your stove daily, you will likely need to replace the gasket annually.
