This time of year is transitional, moving from the warmth of summer to the chill of winter. That makes Fall the ideal time to get your homestead ready for what’s to come.
One job you need to get done is a chimney cleaning and inspection. Whether you heat with a wood or pellet stove, or just burn the occasional fire, you need an expert to assess your chimney for efficiency, and, most importantly, safety.
On Good Morning New Hampshire on 107.7 The Pulse and 107.3 WEMJ, Peter and Pat spoke with Kyle from Sin-Cal Chimney Cleaning in Hopkinton about why cleaning your chimney increases your safety, and makes your energy more efficient.
Kyle talks about old wood stoves vs new wood stoves, and the types of build-ups on chimney linings that can lead to trouble. You also learn about the importance of a chimney inspection, which licensed chimney professionals provide with each cleaning.
Regulations have changed over the years, and technology continues to improve, but some still try old tales of preventing creosote build-up, like burning coal or burning an aluminum can. A very strong “NO” says Kyle!
New Hampshire has an abundance of homes that have chimneys. It pays to have a professional look yours over, so it will last for as long as you’re in your home, and you will be able to keep the fire burning all winter long.
