ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS:
All Chimney Flues should be inspected annually -
including flues serving furnaces, water heaters, boilers, fireplaces,
wood-burning furnaces, and wood -burning stoves.
Wood stove chimneys or flues may need sweeping twice
per season since their flues/chimneys are small and creosote restricts
Burn only dry, seasoned cordwood or untreated pallet wood
in your fireplace or stove. Do not burn treated wood, colored paper,
gift wrapping, trash, etc. which can cause toxic fumes or a chimney fire!
Chimney sweeping is necessary to remove flammable
creosote from the flue and smoke chamber when there is 1/4" or more of
buildup. ALL wood produces creosote, even dry hardwoods!
Only burn seasoned dry cordwood in your stove or
fireplace. Never burn trash (chimney fire), colored paper (toxic),
or treated wood (toxic). Cut wood at least 6 months prior to the
woodburning season to allow it to dry.
Dryer vents need to be cleaned to remove flammable lint
and to allow the dryer to work properly. This should usually be
done once per year for a 1-3 person household or twice per year for
larger households. Commercial dryer vents should be cleaned once a month.
Gas appliances such as gas logs, gas stoves, and gas
inserts should be serviced once per year for optimal operation. Their
flues need to be inspected annually.
