Generations of Grand County residents have relied on fireplaces and other fire devices to keep them warm during the brutal high country winters. Now residents can rely on Grand Flames, a new business that maintains, repairs and installs fireplaces and stoves.

As home development grows in Grand County, so does the demand for chimney service companies. Husband and wife team Todd and Beckie Osborne saw the need for a local business to serve both residents and homeowner associations. Last October they launched Grand Flames, which operates from their home in Kremmling.

In addition to indoor fire pits and gas appliances, Grand Flames installs and services outdoor items such as fire bowls, fire pits and fire tables. These outdoor features create a place where people can relax and socialize while enjoying the crackling flames.

But as beautiful as the fire features are, they can also be dangerous if left untended. Having a properly installed and maintained fireplace or stove is essential to a safe home.

Improperly installed fire suppression devices can create hazards such as structural damage or carbon monoxide leaks. Grand Flames, which is certified by the National Fireplace Institute, takes pride in servicing both fireplaces and gas appliances. They offer chimney sweeps and will test, inspect or repair any unit. The National Fire Protection Association recommends that fireplaces be inspected at least once a year.
