Winter is Coming! Are You Ready?

Winter is Coming! Are You Ready?

by Home Fire Stove & Grill City Staff on June 25, 2019
We’ve been there before. Winter is in full-swing. Our gutters are cleaned and ready for the months of rain to follow, we installed more energy efficient windows to lock in the heat and keep out the cold. We have updated our capsule wardrobe to the warmer colors of Fall and Winter. We even bought some “wellies” – rain boots just in case, but still, something is missing.  

That dreadful feeling usually hits mid-fall for those of us in the Pacific Northwest. In all of our Summer prep work, we missed one vital task to all of our cold-weather preparations – we forgot to have our fireplace or stove serviced.  We all know how that feels, to call the fireplace store that we purchased our product from, only to find out that they are booked up and can’t squeeze us in for a few weeks! A few weeks without the added warmth of the stove or fireplace means bundling up, turning up the thermostat, paying more on our energy bills and being overall grouchy if our fireplace or stove is our main heat source.
Save Yourself the Hassle, and Save Yourself Some Money!
