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.

This company is one of the best around. Don't be fooled by some of these shady companies out there. I bought my wood stove from Total Chimney back in 2005. It is now 2009. The stove had a MFG defect that just showed now. Steve sent his crew over and repaired the stove with no questions asked. He stands by his products. I have used him since putting this wood stove in for the yearly cleanings as well. His crew does a great job and they are neat and full of knowledge about their products. They never leave a mess behind. I would not hesitate to buy another stove from Total Chimney. They stand by their products and really provide great service. I live out in Bethany and it gets cold! My stove heats my house just like Steve said it would. I couldn't be more pleased. He insisted I put the stainless steel chimney liner in with the stove. I was reluctant but this was money well spent. The stove runs very efficient and I sleep well at night knowing it was properly and safely installed. Be sure you line your chimney. It makes the stove run better and makes cleaning very easy from inside the hosue. 5 stars all the way!
