This is a sample of the buildup that can occur if you don’t regularly service your chimney. If you are not able to light a fire in your slow combustion, or your house is filling up with smoke – your chimney or a cowl probably looks like this.

Dirty chimney

How often does my heater need to be maintained?

Your heater requires annual servicing and cleaning mainly for safety reasons, but also for efficient operation. When you don’t service your heater, you may be exposing your family to harmful emissions (carbon monoxide) if your heater isn’t sealing. If your chimney doesn’t draw well, when you open the door, fumes and smoke pour into the house, allowing toxic fumes into your living space. The same thing can happen if the chimney is blocked.

An annual clean helps your fireplace burn cleanly and efficiently. Get your chimney ready for autumn by having it cleaned by Orlik Heating.
