Chimney Certifications: Committed to Keeping Current
The fireplace or heating appliance and its chimney is a source of heat as well as comfort for the home’s occupants. When it is maintained to high standards, it can also be part of creating a friendly, welcoming environment for guests.
Because a fireplace or heating appliance and the chimney that supports it are designed to manage incoming air, fuel, flame and exhaust fumes, safety can’t be taken casually. That’s because there’s risk to both the residents and building attached to any heat source including forced air heating systems.
What’s more, the heating efficiency and performance of the entire chimney system contributes to the well being of the home’s occupants, pets and guests. When the fireplace or heating appliance is functioning properly, energy is used wisely while the home’s comfort, security and safety are protected.
Fresh Sweeps leads the industry in attention both to home safety as well as using energy resources wisely. Rather than leaving chimney sweeping standards up to individual locations and field service teams, the company has invested heavily in upholding quality in every call everywhere.
Certification: Your Best Defense Against Chimney Sweeping Short-Cuts
Certification = Safety First
Every Fresh Sweeps field technician across the country is a Certified Chimney Professional™ and a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep®. These certifications are acknowledged as key measures of a chimney sweep’s knowledge. Not only about evaluating chimney and venting systems, but in how to properly maintain them.
While it may come as no surprise, many individuals and companies that offer chimney sweeping services are merely self-taught, learning on the job with little to no supervision. Unless a discerning homeowner complains, they continue to operate to whatever level suits them. Not so with each Fresh Sweeps technician as they must maintain their certification statuses.
Certification = Investment Protection
Home ownership is likely the largest financial investment most people will ever make. When the cost of heating and cooling the home is included, the investment becomes even greater. The same is true with insuring the home against loss from many sources including heating appliances and chimney systems. Fresh Sweeps team members learn relevant codes and criteria to avoid future homeowner regrets about the comfort, security and safety of their property.
There are even more ways the Certified Chimney Professional™ and CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® from Fresh Sweeps stand out, during appointment scheduling, the onsite call and follow-up stages.
PROMPTNESS means time-specific appointments to fit your schedule. Rather than wide-open “window” scheduling employed by others, Fresh Sweeps allows you to prepare for the chimney sweeping visit by moving personal belongings out of the way and moving pet friends well away from the sweeping activity.
PROFESSIONALISM shows up in many ways. From keeping the property clean to minimizing noise and inconvenience, Fresh Sweeps takes extra measures to make the chimney sweeping call as easy as possible. That includes where equipment is located or even where vehicles are parked.
PERSONAL ATTENTION comes through with the questions being asked at every point during chimney sweeping. That’s because the type of fireplace or heating appliance affects the chimney system. The same is true concerning when and how the chimney is used during the year as well as any concerns about smoke, soot, exhaust fumes and chimney damper operation.
