There are times when it’s fine to buy off-brand products. Store brand cereals can be just fine. If you need a watch for everyday wear, it’s probably okay to buy a discount store brand. Some people lose their sunglasses a lot, and buying several pairs of cheap sunglasses just makes sense. But there are products that it’s better to just go ahead and get the best quality available. If you want a car that’s going to last, buy quality. The same can be true for furniture or carpeting for your home. Quality lasts. At Chim Cheroo Chimney Service, we believe in carrying the top quality brands with a reputation for long-lasting durability.

Did you know that if your wood stove or fireplace isn’t working efficiently, creosote will build up more quickly? Creosote, that nasty substance that builds up as smoke is released from your wood fire, builds upon the interior of your chimney the more you use your fireplace or wood stove. This is an extremely flammable substance that at even as little as an eighth of an inch of buildup can catch stray embers from your fire and cause a dangerous chimney fire. If you believe that your fireplace system needs an update, give Chim Cheroo Chimney Service Inc a call today at 419-752-2231.

Stove Vs. Insert: What Option is Best for You?

As winter approaches, you may be wondering what the most economical way to heat your home might be. You definitely are looking for efficiency, andStove Vs. Insert What Option is Best for You IMG- Mansfield OH- Chim Cheroo Chimney Service INC-w800-h597 you definitely want an economical way to stay warm on those cold winter nights.

Inefficiency of Mortar Fireplaces

Although fireplaces have a lot of eye-appeal, older mortar fireplaces are known to be inefficient for several reasons. If your fireplace does not have some type of glass doors, the heat from the fire is being drawn out of your home through the chimney. Not only is your home not being heated by the fire, the emissions released into the air can contribute to the polluting of the atmosphere. According to the Chicago Tribune, the type of damper that is in your fireplace can contribute to the inefficiency of your fireplace. If you have a throat damper, it can warp or rust, which causes your fireplace to not work as effectively. All things considered, most older fireplaces can’t really be considered heating sources at all, as most of the heat produced goes right up the chimney.


One way to increase efficiency in your older fireplace is to add an insert. Howstuffworks explains an insert as “basically a fireproof box that’s surrounded by steel or cast iron and fronted by insulated glass, creating a closed combustion system.” Sometimes an insert will include a blower that pushes the hot air back into a room rather than allowing it to escape through the chimney. These inserts use the existing chimney to vent the gasses and smoke outdoors.

There are several types of inserts: wood, coal, or pellet burning; gas; electric; or propane. Which type of insert you choose depends on a number of factors: for example, electric heat is easy to install and offers a quick heat source (just a flick of a switch can turn your ‘fire’ on and off again), while gas heat can offer an efficient, easy to maintain heat source, especially if you already have a gas line to your home. Wood burning takes more effort, as you need to either cut or buy wood to burn, set up the fire, and clean up afterwards; however, you won’t need to worry about a gas leak which might occur while burning a gas fire. (Remember: if you use gas heat, it is of extreme importance that you have a working carbon monoxide detector in your home.)

Wood Stoves

Another option might be a wood burning stove. Wood burning stoves have progressed from the stove that your grandpa used. Energy.gov states that modern stoves can not only heat more area, but also burn cleaner and more efficiently than the stoves of the past. One problem with wood burning stoves is the amount of pollutants they produce; if you choose to go with this option, be sure to check your local ordinances to be sure that your stove meets local regulations.
