Fireplaces In High-rise Buildings

Toronto Condo News
Publication date:

Article Summary: 

High-rise dwellings with a working fireplace are able to relax by the fire on cold winter nights. However, improper use can be a danger to people and pets, and insurance companies may not insure residential buildings with them. Older fireplaces are wood burning, while newer buildings are more likely to have gas-powered or electric systems. Those with a fireplace should know how to build a fire safely and use a certified contractor or chimney sweep for repairs. The flue may be a common area if shared with other units.
