My Chimney & Fireplace Smells!

While all fireplaces have some type of odor, a normal fireplace will pull smoke and odors up and out of your home. If smoke and odors are getting into your home, your chimney isn’t working properly. The stinky smell is due to creosote deposits in the chimney, a natural byproduct of woodburning. The odor is usually worse in the summer, when the humidity is high and the air conditioner is turned on. A good good chimney sweeping will help, but usually won't solve the problem completely.

There are commercial chimney deodorants that work fairly well, and many people have good results with baking soda or even kitty litter set in the fireplace.

The real problem is the air being drawn down the chimney, a symptom of overall pressure problems in the home. Some make-up air should be introduced somewhere else in the house. A tight sealing, top mounted chimney damper will also reduce this air flow coming down the chimney. We can help you!.

The first step to solving a stinky chimney problem is to have your chimney cleaned and inspected. If you have your chimney cleaned each year, you can prevent much of this buildup and reduce the risk of smelly and unpleasant odors.

My Chimney & Fireplace Smoke Is Coming Down Into The Home.

If smoke is entering your home when you use the fireplace, you are likely having a problem with “draft”. That means, your chimney isn't’t properly drawing air out of your fireplace flue. There can be many reasons for this, including:

  • A blocked or otherwise dirty chimney
  • Improperly sized chimney flue
  • Malfunctioning chimney damper
  • Wind currents forcing air back down chimney

As you see, there are many reasons that your chimney may be filling your home with smoke or bad odors. If you’ve had water penetrate into the chimney masonry, you may continue to have moisture and air pressure problems. Also, if your chimney hasn’t been cleaned in a while, moisture problems combined with hot, humid air and rain, will definitely cause odors.
No one enjoys a smoky, smelly fireplace. It can be a sign of a dangerous situation, improper equipment or damage that is in need of chimney repair. If you are dealing with chimney water penetration, it’s especially important to have the chimney inspected so you can determine the source of the chimney leaks and stop the water before it causes serious damage to your home.
