What’s That Smell?

Don't Panic!

 

If this is your first time using your fireplace, you might smell an odd odor coming from your fireplace. Don’t panic! This is normal. As a newly constructed home, you will have that ‘new fireplace smell’. The burning smell will go away by:

  • 1. Opening your windows around your home (This is important!)
  • 2. Turning on your fireplace
  • 3. Letting it run for about 30 min.

Do this a couple of times before you use your fireplace and the smell should be completely gone!
