What Is a Chimney Inspection?

A chimney inspection is a check up, or evaluation of the chimney and venting system to assess if it is in good operational condition.

Why Should You Have Your Chimney Inspected?

Again, anytime you’re dealing with natural gas or smoldering wood, you need to be proactive so an emergency never happens. There’s no possible way to eliminate all carbon monoxide or fire risks associated with your gas appliances whether it’s your stove, furnace, or fireplace.

One of the most critical things you can do is to schedule a chimney inspection. Your chimney inspector will check for creosote buildup, flue blockages, or any other leaks or cracks that would cause costly problems later, or worse, potential life threatening emergencies.

At the conclusion of the chimney inspection, you will feel protected leaving you with peace of mind, especially if you do utilize your fireplace often. 

When Do You Need a Chimney Inspected?

According to CSIA. org, (Chimney Safety Institute of America) a chimney specialist should be trained and inspect all chimney and venting systems every year regardless of its frequency of usage.

You will also need an inspection when you’re moving into a new home, installing a new appliance, updating your fireplace, changing fuel types, appliance types, or replacing your flue liner.

Of course, if you’ve noticed a change in the performance of your fireplace, that would qualify as another good reason to call for an inspection.
