Hello and welcome to another WIN video blog!

There's nothing like relaxing by the fireplace when the weather gets frigid. Before you light yours up for the first time this season, take a few minutes to make sure your fireplace is safe to use.

Inspect the interior of your fireplace for any cracks, gaps or signs of wear before lighting the first log of the season. If you find any, it could be time for repairs.

If you use your fireplace regularly, make sure to schedule a professional inspection and cleaning at least once per year.

Thanks for watching!
