How to Use Your Fireplace when Chimney Cleaning is Overdue
A cheap and quick decorative solution for your fireplace when your chimney is overdue for a cleaning and you have guests coming for cocktails before the chimney sweeper can make it.
Nothing is more warm and inviting than a crackling fireplace on a cold winter night, but many wood burning fireplaces have issues. Fireplaces are notorious for wasting energy and your hard-earned cash. Like most people you probably turn on your heater to heat the whole house and you burn a fire to add warmth and ambiance to your living room, but while your enjoying the glow of the dancing flames it's sucking warm air out of your house and contributing to greenhouse gasses. There's also the increased risk of setting your home on fire if you haven't had your chimney inspected and cleaned recently, which should be done once a year.
So what do you do if, like me, you are expecting guests for holiday cocktails, you're not sure when the last time your fireplace was cleaned or it's already overdue, and you're not able to schedule a cleaning between now and then? You can use candles! You can purchase a fireplace candelabrum or use an assortment of pillar holders in place of wood or fire logs. I wasn't able to find an appropriate candelabrum at local retailers and I didn't have, or want to purchase, a bunch of pillar holders so I improvised. I came up with a quick and temporary solution that was cheap and beautiful.
While on a last minute trip to my neighborhood Ikea, I found red glasses that were on clearance for 99 cents. Turned upside-down, the bottoms were the perfect size to place pillar candles upon so I purchased nine of them in two different sizes. When I started putting them into the fireplace I realized they were too low and the bottom lip of the screen rose up about 4 inches so I need to elevate the candles. I live in a rental and I have been too lazy to replace the ugly brass screen and just removing it altogether is not a safe option for my extremely curious cat. After cleaning off a few unused bricks from the side of my house, I placed them in the fireplace to set the overturned glasses on.
I lined up the five taller glasses towards the back of the fireplace and set the four shorter ones in front of them, then placed a pillar candle on top of each glass. With the candles lit and the mesh curtain closed it's a cheap solution that produced the beautiful effect I was after. I was able to use the fireplace with the chimney damper closed so the heat in the house would not escape, and the warmth from the candles was projected into the room. Afterwards I washed the glasses and I can reuse them for my next cocktail party (don't tell my guests).
If you'd like to use this quickie idea and Ikea is not an option you can probably find suitable glassware at your local thrift store. I liked the look of candles in my fireplace so much I purchased a fireplace candelabrum online, which is now its way to my home. It's a good way to enjoy your fireplace without drastically increasing your carbon footprint.
