With fall time comes falling leaves, crisp weather, and excitement as people count down the days until Thanksgiving and other exciting holidays. The dropping temperatures also bring more fireplace use for homeowners everywhere. Fireplaces add warmth and a cozy atmosphere to any home, which is why the Hearth, Patio, & Barbecue Association has declared October National Fireplace Month!
What This Signifies
National Fireplace Month is a time to celebrate the role fireplaces play in bringing homes and families together. There are countless ways to enhance and personalize your fireplace so that it not only blends well with your other décor but highlights your personality, as well. There are also a wide variety of products built to keep your fireplace running efficiently throughout the year. That’s why fireplace month is so great for bringing more awareness to the endless array of options that homeowners have when it comes to their fireplace and chimney.
This month-long occasion is also set in place to bring attention to the importance of fireplace safety. There are various ways homeowners can ensure that their home and family stay as safe as possible throughout these colder months, and staying educated on safety tips can make a huge difference for one’s health and home.

At SirVent Chimney, we also care about your safety. Keep these tips in mind, as you start putting your fireplace to more frequent use.
- Make an escape plan: Having a fire escape plan set up ahead of time will allow you and your family members to always know the quickest way out of the house. Create alternative routes, in case a fire has someone closed in. Review this plan from time to time and practice it at home with your family.
- Install smoke Alarms: Installing carbon monoxide and smoke detectors can make a huge difference in maintaining home safety. Carbon monoxide is odorless, making it hard to detect without the device, and a smoke alarm will alert you at the first sign of smoke, allowing you the time you need to get out.
- Attend to your fires: Never light a fire and leave it without supervision. If everyone goes to bed it needs to be completely put out. Also, ensure that no flammable materials are near the fire while it is going.
