Yes, when the temperatures are dipping for the first time this fall into the 30s with the highs just in the 60s this Georgia girl gets cold. I'm certainly looking forward to hitting the 70s again by the end of the week.
But we always check the chimney from outside to make sure it still looks clear and the screen in in place that would have kept any critter from getting into the chimney. Last year after the were SURE we'd had the last fire we called the chimney sweep and had it cleaned out. This time of year they are hard to get to your house because SO many people wait until it's time to use the fireplace to call.
But safety first. Have the chimney sweep come out before you build that fire. I've seen a chimney fire up close and personal twice and it's potentially something that can cost you your home.
If you are heating with a furnace I also suggest you have it serviced prior to use. I recently had my furnace serviced by the HVAC company I use AND I had the company I buy propane from check the tank and lines all the way to the furnace for leaks. So now that we are having our first cold snap I'm ready ready ready. It's a toasty 70 inside and my puppies are piled on the floor right in front of the fireplace. Toasty.
If you are using an elerctric heater, check the cord and make sure it's clear for 5 or more feet in front of it. If it doesn't turn off automatically when tipped over it just may be time to replace it. Be safe.
And while I am sitting here in my warm house I just want to mention that I am saying many prayers for all those in the path of hurricane Sandy. Those I know and love and those I don't know. I pray for your safety and the safety of those working to restore power in your areas.
