The Importance of Chimney Inspections

Annual Requirement: The National Fire Protection Association recommends annual chimney inspections to ensure the safe operation of your fireplace, wood stove, or furnace. Even if you don’t use your chimney frequently, deterioration and blockages can occur, posing serious safety risks.

Identifying Issues Early: During a chimney inspection, our technicians check for cracks, creosote buildup, obstructions, and other potential hazards that could lead to costly repairs or fire hazards if left unaddressed. Identifying these issues early can prevent disasters and save you time and money in the long run.

Types of Chimney Inspections

Level 1 Inspection: Ideal for routine maintenance, a Level 1 inspection includes a basic assessment of the chimney’s structure and functionality and, if necessary, a chimney cleaning.

Level 2 Inspection: Recommended under various circumstances, including property sales, system changes, or after chimney fires, a Level 2 inspection provides a more in-depth examination, including internal surfaces using specialized equipment like cameras.

Level 3 Inspection: Reserved for serious hazards or hidden issues, a Level 3 inspection may require removing or deconstructing parts of the chimney to access and address potential dangers.

The Dangers of Chimney Neglect

Creosote Buildup: Creosote, a byproduct of fireplace use, can accumulate in chimneys and ignite, causing chimney fires. Regular inspections help detect and prevent dangerous creosote buildup.

Carbon Monoxide Exposure: Obstructions in the chimney can restrict airflow, leading to carbon monoxide buildup in your home. Professional inspections ensure proper ventilation and mitigate the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
