Why sweep your chimney

 

Why sweep your chimney?

 

To get the best out of your appliance, it should be swept and serviced regularly. There are a few reasons for this:

• Removes soot and other obstructions to allow a safe passage for dangerous gases to leave your property safely and efficiently.

• Advise on the condition of your chimney and any possible actions which need to be undertaken.

• Ensures that everything on the appliance itself is in good condition and nothing is inhibiting its performance.

 

Far from being a thing of the past, getting your chimney swept regularly is essential. Some think that if you have a flue liner, your chimney does not need to be swept. That is incorrect.  Every chimney which is in use for a solid fuel, gas or oil appliance should be swept regularly.

 

Likewise, almost every appliance will need servicing at some point. Failing to do this will inhibit your appliance’s capacity and could also see you wasting money.

For instance, replacing rope seals on the door of your stove will ensure that the fuel inside burns at the correct temperature. Damaged or missing rope seals will let in excess air, causing the fire to burn out of control. Not only is this inefficient, but it will end up costing you more as you will have to refuel more often.
