Chimney Solutions Indiana along with the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and national fire safety experts recommend all homeowners have an annual chimney inspection. The purpose of a chimney inspection is to mitigate any potential fire hazards and uncover issues before they become more expensive repairs or a threat to the safety of your home or family. We follow the chimney inspection guidelines established by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and CSIA. While there are three levels of inspection, most homeowners will require a basic level 1 inspection. During a level 1 inspection, our certified chimney sweep will visually inspect your entire chimney and fireplace, inside and out. Our chimney sweep will also recommend any necessary repairs and cleaning giving peace of mind to customers in Fishers, IN.
For homeowners that recently purchased a home or made any changes to the chimney, fuel or flue system, will require a level 2 inspection. This inspection includes everything in a level 1 plus an inspection of all the accessible components attached to the chimney, including heating appliances.
And when problems have been discovered such as leaks or damage and the source of the issue cannot be readily identified or is inaccessible, a level 3 inspection is required. In order locate and repair the underlying problem, parts of the chimney system may need to be removed to enter an otherwise inaccessible area.
A clean chimney is a safe chimney. If you have ever looked inside your chimney after you have burned through a few logs you will notice a black, tarry substance sticking to the masonry and flue. This is called creosote and it is a natural by-product of combustion. When creosote accumulates to more than 1/8” thickness, it becomes a potentially dangerous fire hazard. Most chimney fires are due to creosote accumulation. In addition, soot and other toxic chemicals can damage the damper, smoke shelf and other components. Our certified chimney sweeps will thoroughly clean your chimney and flue from top to bottom. This will not only reduce safety hazards, it will improve heating efficiency and prolong the life of your chimney.
Chimney Solutions Indiana is committed to ensuring homeowners throughout Fisher, IN, have a clean and safe chimney when using their fireplaces, stoves, inserts and other heating appliances.
The chimney top is one of the more vulnerable areas of the chimney. Without adequate protection, moisture, debris and pests can obstruct the chimney resulting in safety hazards and structural problems. Protecting your chimney top is one of the many chimney services that we provide. These structural components include:
Chase Covers/Rain Pans: Chase covers, and rain pans are attached to the chimney crown forming a complete seal around the chase. This keeps moisture, debris and pests out of the flue while allowing smoke and toxic fumes to vent through the flue.
Chimney Caps: Chimney caps are installed at the top of the chimney to prevent obstructions from clogging the flue and to deflect water away from the chimney and roof line. We carry a variety of pre-fabricated chimney caps and offer custom chimney caps designed to match the aesthetics of your chimney.
