As winter approaches it is important to be aware of the increased risk of Chimney Fires.
Anecdotal evidence would suggest that the number of chimney fire insurance claims this season is up on previous years.
It would appear that more people are using their fires whether due to high oil/gas prices, belt tightening or the availability of firewood as a result of the storm damage from last winter. This is likely to have the unfortunate consequence of an increase in the number of chimney fires this autumn and winter and a resultant increase in fire related insurance claims.
As we are now entering the Christmas period it is very important to be aware of the increased fire danger at this time of year. While the fire damage or smoke damage to your house can normally be put right when your insurance claim is settled the proceeds of your house insurance claim cannot replace a ruined family Christmas or compensate for injury to you or your family.
