Total Chimney Care Means Oil Flues, Too!

Oil FurnaceWe’re revving up for another cold winter here in Connecticut — is your oil furnace’s flue up for the job? Let the careful and thorough sweeps at Total Chimney Care get your oil flue as clean as a whistle and ready to work hard, no matter how long or cold this winter is!

Does My Oil Flue Really Need Cleaning?

Whenever fuel is burned, be it wood, gas or oil, byproducts form and settle along the flue liner (in the case of an oil furnace, the byproducts are carbon and sulfur). As these byproducts build up within the flue, you can expect to see a decrease in efficiency and air purity, and perhaps even a shorter lifespan for your furnace.

Why? Because the buildup of soot reduces airflow within the flue, making it much harder for your furnace to work easily and efficiently. An inefficient furnace will also make it a rough winter for your wallet!

Additionally, restricted airflow within the flue can cause water vapor fumes, nitrogen and carbon monoxide to flow back into your home, polluting your family’s air supply and oftentimes causing health problems.

What If My Oil Flue Needs Relining?

We’ve got you covered there, too! Our team of experts will closely evaluate your liner, and if it’s damaged and unable to safely and efficiently perform its duties, we will make recommendations for a new liner. Our sweeps know which liners are built to last and can properly install a new liner that will restore your oil flue to optimal function.

I am a first time homeowner and very new to keeping a home. The other day, I received a phone call from a chimney company asking if I needed my chimney cleaned. They gave me a great price of $40, so I figured, why not. My husband and I were looking forward to using our fireplace and at that price how could I go wrong. The company showed up and started to scare me that my chimney could not be cleaned, because if they did, the entire chimney would collapse. They started to scare me, that if I did not do this, my gas furnace would leak carbon monoxide into my home and it would be unsafe for my family. They were really pressuring me into a $2000 repair job. When I said I needed to discuss it with my husband, they got really aggressive and insisted I do it right away. They wanted cash and would do it for half price if I did it now. They finally left after some tense moments. I told a friend about this and she told me to call Total Chimney Care. I did and was greeted by a nice woman on the phone. She seemed to know what I was talking about and understand my fears about having someone else come out. I agreed on an appointment (reluctantly) and waited for them. They arrived, looked at my chimney, and showed me that nothing was wrong. They cleaned my fireplace and even showed me how to use it. They were great, honest, and made me feel comfortable. I would use them again and recommend them to anyone. Thanks for reading. :-)
