What can I
do when smoke comes in as I try to light a fire in my fireplace?
There are a few steps you can
take before calling us.
- First, check that your
damper is fully open and there is no excessive soot buildup.
- The next step would be to
crack a window or door open to let air come into the room.
- Third, if the
smoke continues to come into your living space rather than up the chimney, close any glass
doors to the firebox.
- Then you can also
check to make sure that bathroom, kitchen and attic fans are off. These devices
reduce air pressure in the house and can reverse the draft.
- At anytime if flames are
coming out of the firebox, extinguish the fire and open all windows
