Now that summer is upon us, it is easy to forget that your fireplace still needs regular, year-round maintenance. Getting an annual inspection and cleaning is highly recommended for keeping creosote levels down and ensuring that your chimney stays healthy.
Hiring a professional to check out your chimney and make sure that everything is in good condition will help keep your fireplace running strong for years to come. A clean chimney makes building and enjoying fires much safer for those living inside of the home and dramatically reduces the risk of chimney fires. On top of all this, ensuring that any cracks or other needed repairs get addressed before more regular use is important for running your chimney and fireplace as efficiently as possible, so you are not wasting time and money, trying to heat your home.
It is also important to note that, no matter what type of fireplace you own, an annual inspection is always recommended. Whether you burn gas, wood, or pellet, each type of appliance will benefit from a thorough cleaning and assessment.
WHEN TO SCHEDULE AN INSPECTION
Many homeowners put off inspections and schedule professional maintenance right before the cold weather hits or shortly thereafter. Getting your annual inspection done at the start of winter is a good idea, but there is no need to wait until the last minute. Once the leaves start to fall, time slots fill up fast, so consider scheduling your maintenance sooner, rather than later. The longer you wait, the longer it will be before you and your family can enjoy a cozy fire in the comfort of your home.
