Furnace Chimneys Need Annual Maintenance Too!

Servicing the furnace unit is not enough.

Is your gas fireplace giving you problems? Or maybe you are due for your annual inspection? Regardless the issue or scenario, it is always important to trust a team of professionals when it comes to your gas appliance and any maintenance it may require. A gas-fueled fireplace that is not getting adequate care will function much less efficiently, and it can put your home and family at risk, as well. Learn more below.

The Risk Of Carbon Monoxide Exposure

Should draft or airflow be inhibited in any way, there is a much higher chance of carbon monoxide entering your home. If your appliance is not functioning normally, not only is carbon monoxide more likely to form, but the chances of it escaping safely outside decreases, as well.

If you are unfamiliar with carbon monoxide and the threats it poses, consider this. Hundreds of deaths occur every single year as a result of exposure and detecting it is next to impossible due to its colorless and odorless nature. Countless others need to visit the hospital due to symptoms related to breathing this gas in. It is extremely dangerous and any signs of exposure should be taken seriously and addressed promptly.

We urge homeowners to invest in carbon monoxide detectors for their home and to regularly schedule inspections and services with our qualified and certified team. Both of these things significantly minimize the chances of experiencing a leak.

Enhancing Efficiency

Regular upkeep also works wonders when it comes to operating a more efficient appliance. Frustrating issues such as broken pilot light, a malfunctioning unit, rusted parts due to water entry, cobwebs and more can all be avoided by simply scheduling your yearly maintenance with our team.

Get the efficiency and high-quality results you deserve from your gas fireplace by trusting in our experts from start to finish. We’ve got your back every step of the way!

But I Got My Unit Serviced Already . . .

You already got your oil or gas unit serviced by the provider, but did you now these providers do not inspect or clean the attached chimney?

Gas and oil furnace and boilers are very popular in the Maryland area, and many homeowners make the mistake of ignoring the attached flue. Oil or gas technicians will inspect your furnace unit but they won’t inspect or sweep your flue. If clogs are present, you could face harmful toxins (including carbon monoxide) backing up into your home and affecting the health of loved ones and pets. Along with this, furnace chimney that need tune-ups will run less efficiently. This means higher energy bills and less overall heat, which is a lose-lose all around financially and environmentally.

You Can Call a Flue Professional for the Yearly Maintenance

  2. What does the outside of the chimney look like? Is brick, stone,block, covered in siding or a metal pipe?
  3. Are you having any problems with your system? Campfire smell or odor, animals or birds getting in, system smokes inside the home when you use it, water leaks?
  4. Are you buying or selling your home?
    This information allows us to explain what our technicians will do when they come to your home and what to expect during our inspection process.
    *If you don’t know these answers, it’s okay! We can help you figure it out.
