If you have a fireplace and chimney that you use, even on a semi-regular basis, then you should definitely look into chimney exhaust fans. We are an NJ chimney company, and we can think of several different reasons chimney exhaust fans are an excellent investment.
When you burn something in your fireplace, wood, for example, the smoke will generally go up the chimney on its own. But when there is an excess amount of smoke or there is not enough of a draft to get all of the smoke out of your home, then chimney exhaust fans can help with that. We can install one on the top of your chimney flue so it sits on top of your chimney and helps pull the smoke out of your home.
You can control the speed of the fan from the comfort of the inside of your home too! So when there is a particularly large amount of smoke coming from your fireplace, you no longer have to worry about opening windows or worrying about dangerous levels of carbon monoxide building up and potentially poisoning you and your loved ones. With the flick of a switch, you can clear the excess smoke out of your chimney.
Some of the main causes for the build-up of smoke include less “breathing” of the home, which simply means there are fewer drafts in your home to help expel the smoke. This can be a result of better insulation or newer and more energy efficient windows and doors. Or maybe there are large trees or shrubs planted near your home and chimney. The branches can block air flow from the chimney and the flue, causing the smoke and air to go back into your home and potentially cause problems.
So the best solution to this issue is a chimney exhaust fan. The installation does not take long to complete, but you get to enjoy the peace of mind you deserve knowing that if there is an excess amount of smoke in your fireplace, it will be properly and safely ventilated out of your home. You can rest easy knowing you and your loved ones are safe.
