Caution Signs: Does Your Chimney Need Service?
Many homeowners and property managers are, understandably, not experts in all the systems that are part of their property. Buying or managing real estate doesn’t require technical certification much less the ability to spot every problem before it causes damage or a loss.
Fresh Sweeps is out here to help by identifying and remedying those issues before they become costly problems. Our full menu of chimney sweeping, air duct cleaning and vent dryer cleaning services are available to you so that we can really solve these problems.
But we can’t help unless you call, so here are five things you can look for that might indicate your chimney system needs our attention. And remember – the Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends annual inspections in order to protect your home from fire or other dangers.
Signal #1: FIREPLACE puts out smoke, can’t burn fuel efficiently, or makes the room feel drafty These three problems may actually all be indicative on one issue. Often, these problems are caused by in the fireplace or heating appliance. This could be built up creosote, nests, or other kinds of blockages. Depending on the design of the system, there could be blockages either where the air comes in or is supposed to flow up and out of the home.
Don’t worry, Fresh Sweeps can help!
Signal #2: CHIMNEY now is inhabited by raccoons, squirrels, birds, or other animals More than a few homeowners have been startled by the noise and smell of creatures seeking shelter in the flue or chimney of their wood or gas heating appliance. Many times, these animals bring other materials with them to provide a home for their young. Simply trying to “smoke them out” is ineffective and can prove disastrous as a fire is triggered above the combustion chamber. Don’t worry, Fresh Sweeps can help!
Signal #3: GLASS has become smudged or sooty on the fireplace or stove This kind of build-up on the glass is a symptom of bigger problems that are occurring. It might be that the wood or gas heating appliance is burning poorly due to improper air intake, compromised venting or inadequate combustion. Once again, this is where certified technicians can diagnose the real cause of excessive soot. Don’t worry, Fresh Sweeps can help!
Signal #4: MASONRY has started to crumble or is cracking Air intake and exhaust output leaks can happen at any point in the heating appliance system. Even if the flue still is operating properly today, the erosion of structural and ornamental facades is worrisome. Not only when it comes to safe system operation, but to the cleanliness of the interior environment. Don’t worry, Fresh Sweeps can help!
Signal #5: FLUE CONTROLS fail to operate smoothly or alter the airflow Flue controls perform several important functions in a wood or gas heating appliance. In some, they govern how fast the fuel is burned and heat is produced. In all cases, the flue control or vent damper is part of a one-way system to push exhaust fumes out of the interior. Operation should be smooth and change the opening size gradually for best control. Don’t worry, Fresh Sweeps can help!
