It’s still summertime, but if you look out your window, you may notice that some leaves are already beginning to fall. Before we know it the cool winds of autumn will be upon us, and you know what makes those cozy evening indoors even better? A crackling fire. If you are eager to sit by your hearth and enjoy a good movie, an engaging book, or simply spend some time with loved ones, then the time to schedule your chimney inspection is now.
Don’t Wait For Fall
Now, you may be wondering why we urge our customers to get their inspection done on the earlier side. Why not just wait until fall officially arrives? Well, unfortunately, that’s the thought process that most homeowners have, meaning our appointment book fills up pretty quickly that time of year. If you put off maintenance much longer, you may find yourself waiting weeks to get a simple inspection done!
Unfortunately, inspections sometimes reveal the need for a sweeping or some repair services, in which case it’s back to the calendar. If you want to ensure your system is ready for use for snow days, holiday get-togethers, and more, then call on us now to ensure you don’t face any delays or scheduling conflicts.
Is An Inspection Really Necessary?
If your the type that doesn’t put your fireplace to use a whole lot or if you have a gas-burning unit or a metal liner in place, you may be wondering if an annual inspection is actually necessary. Chances are, everything is fine, right? Well, this isn’t always the case and, when it comes to running your fireplace, it’s really best not to take any risks. If there are any gaps, holes, obstructions, or other issues, you could easily face a carbon monoxide leak, chimney fire, house fire, or other similar problem.
Along with this, problems with construction or blockages within your flue lead to inefficiency, which means you won’t be getting the heat or satisfaction you are hoping for. We urge all homeowners to follow the advice of the CSIA and the NFPA and get their system inspected on an annual basis for that peace of mind we feel you all deserve.
