From Cold to Cozy: When and Why You Should Renovate Your Fireplace

For most people living in countries outside of Canada, the winter season means that chilly winds start to blow, temperatures fall a few degrees below the daily average, and in ‘extreme’ scenarios, a bit of snow falls to the ground. However, for people living in Canada, they will tell you what a real winter really feels like. Stretching from the U.S. in the south and coming way too close to the Arctic Circle in the north. This country in the northern hemisphere is one of the few places on earth where winter rages with all its cold fury. Daytime temperatures drop to approximately -15 degrees Celsius, and people pile on heavy jackets, coats, gloves and other winter gear to stay warm. While people in other countries might get by with a small portable heater to stay warm in their homes, Canadians require a lot more.

Toronto alone receives an average of 50 inches of snow each year. If you live in the same city, it will be stating the obvious to say that you must surely have a large functioning fireplace in your house – one that works 24/7 during winters to provide warmth and comfort to you and your loved ones.
Since it is such an essential part of life in Toronto, it is important that you give the fireplace the care and attention that it deserves. Regular maintenance is a must, but what is more important is to ensure that your fireplace meets health and safety standards.

Many homes in Toronto are fitted with the traditional wood-fueled fireplaces. Not only are they a thing of the past, they are highly inconvenient, more demanding and quite often also dangerous from a health and safety perspective.
Modern fireplaces are gas or electricity-driven, more efficient and even more aesthetic. So, if your fireplace is several years old, it’s time to consider renovating it.

When is the Ideal Time for a Fireplace Renovation?

It goes without saying that the ideal time for a fireplace renovation in Toronto is when the cold winds die down, and warmer breezes start to blow. Simply stated the end of winter is without a doubt the best time to consider giving your fireplace a remake and/or doing a thorough maintenance check.

Summer or Spring?

Fireplace renovations in Toronto should be completed in a season other than winter, but few people think about the finer details and other intricacies involved. Most homeowners tend to put off fireplace maintenance until the late summer because they think that the spring is too early since it probably will not be used until the next few months. However, due to increased demand for this service prices may be higher by the end of summer…plus you may not be able to get the required help from home designers because they might be all booked up. Therefore springtime is the best time for a fireplace renovation in Toronto.

I have needed immediate service and repair for the Heat Pump in my Condo in Mississauga three times over the last 8 years. Every time during the heat wave in the summer, and also Ice storm in the winter. Cozy Comfort Plus was referred to me by a family member. Since then Cozy Comfort Plus has always been the place for me to go to for professional and great technical service and repair, even for maintenance on my Gas fire place. As I needed to keep my tenants happy and satisfied. They helped me save thousands of Dollars, by recognizing the problem and replacing the faulty part on a cheap Heat Pump installed by the original builder. Cozy Comfort Plus truly stand to their name. I have referred them to my elderly parents also living in a Condo and they had the same great experience I did. Their technicians are experienced, professionals and extremely customer friendly. In all occasions, they treated it as if their own. Thank you Cozy Comfort Plus

I am very pleased with their services. They help me build my new fireplace which was actually to correct the previously wrong built by another contractor. Brian is the chief designer for my fireplace, then he referred a good contractor Martin to build the fireplace. Because they did such a good job and they are bunch of caring people, I hired them again to help me disconnect my gas BBQ from the main connector. The Gas technician they sent did an excellent job. Thank you Brian and your team. I would highly recommend their services.
