Have Your Chimney Inspected During the Off-Season

Here in New England, the off-season for the chimney is from late March until late September. This is the time during the year when homeowners are able to find a chimney professional to handle repairs, rebuilds, and more with ease.

When you call Brickliners during the off-season, you will be able to get a desired technician or appointment slot easier. Customers who wait until the fall rush to schedule any important chimney services are often left with an undesirable appointment time and cold nights! We want our customers to have the safest and most efficient chimneys possible. That is why we offer our chimney services year-round.

Preventative Services

We offer chimney sweeps and inspections to keep your system clean and safe. Not only will your chimney system vent your fire better when it is clean, but you can also avoid problems in the offseason including odors and leaks.

The Inspection and Its Importance

Whether you’ve used your chimney system without incident or you’ve had serious problems with it, you still need a chimney inspection annually. Scheduling it during the off-season offers extra benefits, but inspection also ensures ongoing safety. A chimney inspection now will prevent accidental fires during the burn season. When all the parts of the system are in working order, you can count on the fireplace to burn and vent properly and safely.

Chimney leaks can also be detected by inspection. Leaks often go unnoticed throughout winter because the water is frozen or vaporized. Spring and summer leaks are quite common due to a rise in precipitation and humidity. However, leaks are preventable by scheduling an inspection. Once a professional finds a leak in your system, we can repair the damage and leak. This prevents more serious damage down the road.

By scheduling your chimney inspection during the off-season, you will also have ample amount of time to make repairs before burn season. Waiting until the fall to have an inspection for your system may leave you with cold nights waiting on repairs.
