Furnace Flue Cleaning

  Get Social Specials!

Your furnace or heating appliance needs to have its venting system cleaned just as if it was a fireplace flue. The particulate build-up is not as great, but these connections that vent your unit need to be removed and cleaned out. Here our technician has hooked up the vac into the pipe leading up the chimney.He will also go up on the roof and use the brushes to scrub the inside of the chimney lining from the top. The process is very similar to chimney cleaning and just as important.

As a fully Certified Chimney Sweep we clean all types of furnace and heating appliance venting systems, not just wood burning fireplace flues. Many people don't realize that the same type of dangerous build-ups can occur with furnace flues and gas fired appliances as well.

Every heating element in your home that gets vented needs to be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis to ensure continued safe operation. If it is vented, there is a possibility that it can be blocked - and if it is blocked that can spell danger for you and your family.

One of the most important times to inspect and clean the furnace flues is when you move into a new home or install a new furnace in your existing home. Be aware that today's high capacity energy efficient units call for different venting specifications than your old unit that you are replacing. Your heating man may not let you know that this is an important consideration, so please let us know. We can advise you on the compatibility of your venting system with your new furnace or heating appliance.

Hot water furnaces and forced hot air furnaces bothe should be inspected annually. Gas systems can get a build-up that is referred to as "scale" that forms when moisture and gas byproducts combine. Too much of this coating can result in poor performance and possible carbon monoxide backing up into the home. Many times homeowners mistakenly assume that the oil man or their heating contractor takes care of cleaning the flues. Then they discover that they have a problem with soot blowing through the house or sickness from CO2 poisoning.

This home had a traditional stone chimney attached to their fireplace and a block chimney that vented their furnace. Both chimneys and venting systems were thoroughly cleaned.

Remember, if you see white residue on the masonry chimney - that is a telltale sign. It means that mineral salts are coming through the brick because of too much moisture inside the chimney. This moisture can also ruin walls and ceilings that are adjacent to the chimney as it passes through the house. With regular maintenance, most major problems associated with chimneys and furnace venting systems can be avoided completely.
