Top 3 Reasons To Stay On Top of Preventive Fireplace & Chimney Maintenance Services

We hear it all the time from homeowners and business owners alike: “Is it really that important to maintain a regular service schedule for my heating system?” And as much as we’d love to tell you that preventive maintenance is a luxury as opposed to a necessity, that simply wouldn’t be true.

Establishing a sustainable, long-term service schedule that includes those pesky preventive services, like cleanings and chimney inspections, is a vital part of owning a flame-producing appliance – plain and simple.

Here are the top three reasons why:

1. Regular Maintenance Ensures Safer Operation

For as unassuming and simple= as a fireplace and chimney system appears on the outside, the intricacies of the components that make functioning possible are all found within the walls. This means that if and when something is not sitting as it should – or is somehow missing or damaged – it will most likely go unnoticed until it’s too late and the damage and deterioration has worsened and spread.

Staying on top of things by scheduling regular, annual inspections and chimney cleanings will prevent this by catching problem areas early and allowing you the benefit of scheduling more minor repairs (as well as the peace of mind that comes from knowing your home and family are safe).

2. Care For Your Fireplace & Increase Appliance Longevity

Just like anything else, taking proper care of your fireplace and chimney system will extend its lifespan and as such, the number of years you can reliably enjoy its warmth. Don’t fall prey to the notion that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” because, when it comes to chimneys, this isn’t necessarily true.

While yearly chimney cleanings will remove accumulated creosote and other caked-on debris from the inside of your flue, inspections serve as that annual diagnostic exam that gives you an overview of the systematic health of your entire appliance. In addition to operating your fireplace in accordance with manufacturer guidelines, both preventive services are important in increasing the longevity of your system.

3. You’ll Save Time & Money on Costly Repairs

We’ve all heard the adage that it’s always better to be proactive than reactive, and that is certainly true when it comes to your hearth. Not only do preventive services keep your home and family safe from fireplace-related dangers and prolong fireplace or stove lifespan, they also help you save time and money in the long-run.

How so? Because they catch minor blips and inefficiencies before they have a chance to wreak major havoc and cause the need for more invasive and intensive repairs.

Not sure when the last time you had your system serviced? No judgment – life can get pretty hectic; we’ve all been there! All you have to do is get in touch with Ashbusters and we’ll take care of the rest. Give us a call at 843-595-4927, or fill out this appointment request form through our website, and we’ll be happy to set you up with the service that best suits your needs.

My chimney chase was rusty and started a slow leak. I Emailed Ashbusters and they got back to me very quickly to schedule an estimate. Their customer service rep was very communicative about when the work could be done, and they were able to do the repair even quicker than originally thought. Every time someone was at my house, they were professional and courteous, and on time. They did the repair and showed me pictures afterwards and the work looks great and no more leaks!! Highly recommended!

How Often Should You Schedule a Chimney Cleaning?

That’s a great question. In accordance with guidelines set by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and agreed upon by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), homeowners are required to have their chimney swept out at least once a year.

Fireplace, stove, and other fire-producing appliance operation naturally creates particulate byproducts that travel through the chimney by way of the fire’s smoke. Over time, these particles collect on the walls of the chimney flue and can cause a variety of dangers. Not only does this run the risk of clogging up your flue, which leads to issues with backdrafting and smoky living spaces, but creosote is also highly flammable. Having any number of creosote deposits makes it easier for a chimney fire to catch and spread.

Why Are Credentials Important in the Chimney & Venting Industry?

A not-so-fun fact about the chimney and venting industry: there are no “official” standards and regulations. What does this mean, exactly? Essentially, it means that anyone able to get a hold of a super tall ladder and some official-looking tools can slap some labels on a truck and call themselves a chimney technician…despite never having looked down a flue. And considering your fireplace and chimney are inside your home, that makes the whole thing even sketchier and more dangerous.

It’s exactly for this reason that we strongly emphasize the importance of doing your research before booking with the first “full-service chimney maintenance and repair near me” result that you find. Companies that are licensed, insured, and promote and maintain relationships with various, well-known industry organizations will advertise this on their websites – it’s super important to keep an eye out for. Working with an official business that publicizes the various certifications and memberships will be the difference between a job done right and one that will require a do-over.

Questions about what to look for or how exactly to conduct your search? We’re happy to help! Even if you’re not ready to book yet, feel free to get in touch with someone from our team to get your questions answered. You can reach us by phone at 843-595-4927, or fill out this appointment request form and someone will get back to you soon.

What Is the CSIA?

An abbreviation for the Chimney Safety Institute of America, the CSIA is a nonprofit organization that oversees and promotes the proper training of chimney, fireplace, and venting professionals. Nationally recognized as the leader in the chimney industry, the CSIA is directed by a board of volunteers who aim to spread safety awareness as well as other proper fireplace and chimney maintenance tips.

In addition to their certification courses and online modules, the Chimney Safety Institute of America has a plethora of resources available for homeowners as well. Ranging from ways to help prevent chimney fires to why it’s important to trust a CSIA-certified technician (like those of us here at Ashbusters) to perform any maintenance and repairs, this organization is an excellent asset both for professionals working in the field and homeowners alike.
