Maintaining your appliances and chimney
Ensuring regular maintenance is carried out by a competent HETAS engineer is essential to ensure that your flue systems and appliances connected to them are working correctly, and safely. Blocked flue ways, or incorrectly working stoves can leave you at risk of chimney fires and carbon monoxide poisoning.
HETAS and most chimney sweep associations recommend to have any flue system swept and checked 4 times a year. We send out a letter to all our solid fuel installations every year to remind you to at least have it swept once and checked. If you require us to sweep it more then once a year please notify us.
We can also advise you and replace fire cement in the joints, if you need new stove rope to ensure your stove stays air tight or even replacement of the internal firebricks. Always notify us if you think you will be needing any spare parts before we arrive and we can make sure to bring some just in case.
A good sweep will also be able to tell if you are burning your fuel correctly and if its the right fuel for your appliance. We will also test the installation and give you a safety certificate with every sweep and service .
We sweep and service appliances not installed by us, and can also take on large contracts if needed - get in touch today to book a service, or ask any advice.
Chimney sweeps start from £55
