While a chimney can offer a convenient, cost-effective heat source in our cold West Virginia winters, proper maintenance is essential to keeping your home and your family safe. Has your chimney been inspected by a professional recently? If not, call Hearth & Patio today. We can make sure your chimney is safe for the coming winter.
Many homeowners do not realize the dangers that can accompany an active chimney. The exhaust gases from wood, coal, pellet and gas heating appliances produce chemicals and condensation which deteriorates the chimney and cause it to break down over time, possibly trapping carbon monoxide in your home. Chimneys should be swept and inspected on a yearly basis.

One of the most important steps for maintaining your chimney is a yearly inspection if you use it frequently. The National Fire Protection Association recommends that chimneys, fireplaces, and vents be inspected at least yearly. By identifying and repairing small issues early, you will keep your fireplace working safely and efficiently.
The professionals at Hearth & Patio can inspect your chimney and recommend any repairs or cleaning as needed. If you have a frequently used wood-burning fireplace, stove or insert, your chimney can quickly build up dangerous deposits. Keep your family safe and warm.
