Fire N' Stone Keeps Homes Warm And Safe Through The New England Winter

By S. Mathur

A warm wood stove or cozy fireplace is an essential part of the picture in a typical New England winter. But keeping them running safely can be quite a task. That's where Fire N' Stone, the custom stone and chimney service in Tilton, NH, can help.

"At Fire N' Stone we are unique from other stove shops and chimney businesses in the sense that we are not just one or the other but both," owner Angelo Farruggia said. "We are a full service chimney business that offers full service, installation, and masonry work all performed by our in house technicians. So when we go into a project our fully insured and licensed technicians are able to perform all the work needed from start to finish without having to have multiple contractors onsite."

Chimneys are essential for those living through northeast winters, but they are also one of the most neglected corners of the house. Out of sight, out of mind seems to be the operating principle here, but this can be dangerous. Farruggia says that chimneys are not a luxury but a necessity to keep homes warm and safe.

"Many of us rely on them to heat our homes keeping our families warm and safe throughout the winter," he said. "Our annual service of cleaning and inspecting your chimney as well as maintaining the outside structure will make sure your chimney lasts the test of time and never lets you down, which is important because when chimneys fail its usually in the coldest months when we need them the most. Our technicians can make sure failure never happens as well as making recommendations for you to get the most out of your chimney for efficiency and aesthetics to maximize your chimneys efficiency and make your chimney and fireplace the envy of the neighborhood."

While the state of New Hampshire does not have certification requirements for anyone in the chimney and woodstove business, Farruggia makes it a point to hire only highly skilled and trained professionals. It's a matter of safety and the reputation of the company is at stake.

"The state of NH has no licensing or education requirements to be a chimney business or wood stove installer" he said. "All of our technicians are certified thru the Chimney Safety Institute of America, the National Fireplace Institute with their highest classification of Master Hearth Professional for dealing with wood/gas/pellet fuels, as well as NH State Gas Fitters Licensing for Hearth Fitter classification."

Further, technicians at Fire N' Stone go through a one year apprenticeship, at the minimum, before they can go out on the road on their own. This helps them to learn about the dangers of fire and carbon monoxide in homes, to maintain the safety of clients. Fire N' Stone serves both residential and commercial clients and has thousands of happy customers.
