What Is a Chimney Inspection?

A chimney inspection is a thorough examination of your entire chimney system, including the firebox, damper, flue, and chimney cap – just to name a few. We also check for any damage, blockages, leaks, or other safety concerns and provide a recommendation for repair, if necessary. Sometimes, issues are hard to see and require a keen eye to diagnose the problem.

How Often Should I Have My Chimney Inspected?

Just like with chimney sweepings, it is recommended that you have your chimney inspected at least once a year. We make this easy for you by allowing you to schedule your chimney inspection and sweeping at the same time. We really do try to make this an easy and convenient process for our customers.

And yes – this annual-inspection-rule also goes for homeowners who don’t use their fireplace much – or even at all! Even unused chimneys can experience damage and other issues due to bad weather, animal invasion, and more. This damage makes it dangerous to use the fireplace when you eventually do want to enjoy a fire, and it hurts the overall value of your home too.

Do I Really Need to Have My Chimney Professionally Swept?

We know that routine maintenance costs money, and it’s easy to think that maybe this isn’t as necessary as we make it sound, but the truth is that it is absolutely necessary.

The main reason for sweeping your chimney is to remove creosote buildup, soot, and any other debris that has accumulated. Creosote is a dark gunky substance that results from using your fireplace, stove, or other heating insert.

What’s the big deal with creosote? Well, for starters, it’s combustible and is the leading cause of chimney fires. In addition, creosote and other buildup can cause damage and inefficiency.

We always recommend having this done professionally because it requires specialized knowledge, training, and tools to get it done correctly and safely.

Why Is Chimney Maintenance Important?

We always hear that yearly chimney maintenance is important, but what does that actually mean? Well, the purpose of yearly inspections and cleanings is to help with the following:

  • Chimney Fire Prevention: Creosote is the black substance in your fireplace or wood stove chimney. It is a combustible byproduct of burning wood, and the more creosote you have, the more likely you are to experience a chimney fire. Imagine the cost of repairing your chimney or home after a chimney fire. A yearly inspection and sweeping is definitely cheaper!
  • Ensuring Efficiency: Whether your home has a fireplace flue, or an oil or gas furnace chimney, you want it to be as efficient as possible. Keeping your chimney maintained can ensure efficiency within your system and reduce your energy bill costs. An inspection can detect flue size issues, as well as blockages and damages – both of which can affect the safety and performance of the chimney.
  • Keeping Harmful Fumes Out: Blockages can also cause dangerous gases and smoke to enter back into your home. Cracks in your chimney flue can cause this too and you wouldn’t even know it. Don’t risk the safety of your family and get that inspection scheduled ASAP.
  • Extend System Lifespan: Early detection of damage and deterioration is key in keeping your chimney functioning as long as possible. What might be a little crack now could turn into a full blown leak that also causes water damage to your home – resulting in another (highly expensive) bill that could’ve been prevented by simply scheduling an inspection from the start.

As you can see, there are many potential issues that can arise from neglecting to maintain your chimney system. That is why we recommend you hire a professional, like the crew here at Lou Curley, every year. We not only have the proper tools and equipment to perform the job, but also years of expertise to handle any and all of your concerns.
