Chimney & Fireplace Questions? Our Experts Have Answers

Questions about your chimney or fireplace? Our techs are certified, experienced, and qualified to provide you with the answers you’re looking for.

How often should my chimney be professionally inspected?

According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), homeowners should invest in inspections annually – no matter what type of fuel they’re using. This ensures the system stays in good condition and free of buildup. It also helps guarantee that the fireplace isn’t putting families at risk when in use.

Why is my living space smoky?

There are lots of reasons smoke may fill up your living room every time you light a fire. Opening a window may offer some temporary relief, especially if your home is tightly insulated, but for more long-lasting resolutions, ask our team about your options.

Which is better – a top-sealing damper or a throat damper?

Well – it depends. Top-sealing dampers tend to be the recommended option since they seal tightly and protect your chimney from the very top, but these can only be installed in certain types of appliances. 

If you’re having damper issues, figure out where you stand and what would be best for you by reaching out to our team today.

What type of liner should I invest in?

We recommend investing in stainless steel chimney liners. They’re durable, corrosion-resistant, compatible with all fuels, and they come with a lifetime warranty. They’re also quick and affordable to install, ensuring your system is back in tip-top shape in no time.

What can I burn in my fireplace?

The only thing that should be burned in your fireplace is well-seasoned firewood (i.e. wood that has been dried out for at least six months). That means no fresh/wet wood, no trash, no plastic, no paper products, no cardboard, no treated wood, and no Christmas trees.
