Stove owners must remember to have their chimneys swept at least once a year as recommended by HETAS and NACS. Ours installers will give you a run down of the do’s and don’ts of using a woodburning stove and chimney sweeping is an important part of the information we give our customers.
A clean chimney will make your stove work safely and more efficiently.
We have seen chimney liners virtually blocked by tar and bitumen after just 2 years of operation. Our customers are astonished that a this amount of blockage can occur in such a short time.
It is also critical that an old chimney is swept before a liner is fitted in order to reduce the risk of a chimney fire when the stove is in use. We always sweep a chimney before we fit a liner regardless of previous use.
