Do You Need Your Furnace Flue Cleaned?

Do You Need Your Furnace Flue Cleaned? chimney sweep4 0 Emberstone Chimney Solutions Charlotte

Customers often (falsely) believe that their fuel or utility supplier provides furnace flue upkeep. If your home has a furnace system, you should be scheduling annual inspections and necessary furnace cleanings to keep your system running cleanly while preventing safety hazards. While the hazards of a furnace system differ from a wood-burning fireplace system, they are still dangerous.

A neglected furnace flue can enable debris buildup, causing soot blowback into the home. The result can be exposure to carbon monoxide, an odorless gas that can cause sickness and death. Gas and oil furnaces create other gases that can eat away the furnace liners. If a clay liner begins to disintegrate, it can block gases from leaving the flue, creating another dangerous opportunity for carbon monoxide poisoning.

A furnace system can also experience similar issues to a wood-burning fireplace system, in that nesting animals can also create blockages to the chimney system. While furnace systems create less particulate matter than wood-burning fireplaces, cleanings are necessary because the venting unit connections need to be removed and cleaned out fully. Our technicians are trained to clean and inspect all heating appliances to keep your home running cleanly and safely.

This company is super professional and their inspections and quotes are very thorough. Dan Kaufman was the technician that did my inspection and he gave me a very detailed presentation of all his findings and different avenues of attack all across the price range spectrum. He was open and honest about what needed to be done and what could be considered optional, which put me at ease. He's been spot on with follow ups and further questions as well. I haven't ordered a job yet, but when I do I'll be doing it with this company 👍
