Give Your Chimney a Break (and a Little TLC!)
You might be wondering why we would be talking about your chimney now that the chilly temperatures are behind us, but it’s always wise to think ahead and be sure your home is set up for success in every season.
At Clean Air Solutions, we encourage you to book a professional chimney sweep service this summer while you’re enjoying the sunshine so you and your family can sleep soundly, knowing you will be toasty warm come the next deep freeze!
The Best Time to Clean Your Chimney in Edmonton
Summer is truly the best time to clean your chimney for a number of reasons, which we will get into, but the main method to our madness is convenience. Booking a professional cleaning for your chimney in the summer months can ultimately save you time, money, and more than a few ice-cold nights at home in the winter.
If you are wondering why summer is the best time to clean your chimney, we can explain:
Your Fireplace Is Out of Commission
Imagine using your fireplace all winter long, only to leave it dormant through the summer without paying attention to the chimney until the next below-zero day. You might find that when you go to use your fireplace again after a few months off, there is a dusty smell, or the heat isn’t flowing properly. This is why we encourage you to clean your chimney during your fireplace’s “off-season,” so to speak.
It is very convenient for us to clean your chimney in the summer when you aren’t constantly using your fireplace to keep warm! Not only is it easier for us to access your chimney this way, but we can usually book you in sooner since our HVAC cleaning services are not as high in demand this season.
Your House Should be Ready Ahead of Time for Winter
At Clean Air Solutions, we want you to be prepared for the unpredictable Edmonton weather year-round. A proven way to do that is to access and clean your chimney over the summer so that your home is prepared to handle the first cold snap of the season once temperatures plummet below zero. If you neglect your chimney from one winter to the next, you could end up requiring services more costly than a simple chimney sweep.
So not only can cleaning your chimney in the summer save you potential repair costs later on, but you may also get a better rate to have your chimney services in the off-season as a cost-effective, proactive measure for your home and comfort!
The True Value of Furnace Chimney Cleaning Costs
Even though our rates are competitive and honest, we know it can feel like a big spend having to put money towards HVAC services. That said, having your chimney cleaned, much like having your furnace, ducts and vents cleaned, by a trusted HVAC service provider is a priceless investment in your safety and comfort in your own home.
Keeping your furnace chimney free of build-up and dust can help prevent dangerous incidents like a house fire while increasing the efficiency of your fireplace and contributing to healthier airflow inside your home.
