HAVE YOUR SYSTEM INSPECTED BY A CSIA CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL  

Chimney safety inspections are primarily to protect you and your property from potential hazards which exist in your fuel-burning heating system.  It is essential to safeguard against fire, carbon monoxide, or other noxious gases from entering the home.  Inspections are also important to identify the cause of any performance issues so they can be corrected.  If your chimney isn't installed correctly, is obstructed, or has sustained damage, it is a safety concern, but it is also a financial concern.  A chimney system which is not operating correctly or efficiently can cost you significantly in additional fuel costs during the cold season, and increase the cost of cooling your home in the warm season.  A properly installed and maintained system can save you money and provide years of comfort in your home.  

Having your chimney system and appliance inspected is an investment that will increase your personal safety, protect your property, and save you money in fuel costs and possibly expensive repairs to your home if an unknown hazard exists.    

Our CSIA Certified Technicians adhere strictly to NFPA 211 SAFETY STANDARDS.
