Don’t Forget Furnace Flue Cleaning
Your furnace and heating appliance venting system requires regular cleaning, just like a fireplace flue. Removing the particulate build-up that naturally develops should always be done by a professional. Qualified technicians will scrub the interior chimney lining while the vacuum is hooked to the pipe leading up the chimney. Similar to chimney sweeping, this process is just as important and needs to occur annually, as well.
Blockage Can Happen to Any Vented System
Blockage can occur in any vented system or appliance that has a heating element in your home and should be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis in order to guarantee continued safe operation. Certified Chimney Sweeps are fully trained to clean all types of furnace and heating appliance venting systems. Sweeping wood burning fireplace flues is only part of the job, while ensuring removal of dangerous materials that may be toxic to your health and damaging to your home.
You will want to have these appliances checked prior to moving into a new home or installing a new furnace in your existing home. Current units may be high-capacity and energy efficient, calling for different venting specifications from the older unit, and you want to be sure the existing unit is compatible with the new unit. All American Chimney technicians are trained at providing you with the best solution for any and all furnace and heating systems.
