GEI Chimney Sweeps offer both private and commercial sweeping of open fires, solid fuel, gas and oil appliances.
Chimneys are designed to allow the free passage of dangerous combustion gasses from the property in which the appliance is sited.
Regular cleaning will remove soot and creosote, helping prevent dangerous chimney fires.
A clean chimney will help to maintain appliance efficiency which saves on fuel costs.
The guidelines for sweeping frequency are as follows:
|Smokeless Fuel||Once per year|
|Coal||Twice per year|
|Wood Burning||Quarterly when in use|
|Gas||Once per year if designed for chimney sweeping|
|Oil Fired||Once per year|
Some solid fuel appliances may need more frequent sweeping depending on their degree of use and dimensions of the flue. Always consult manufactures recommendations.
