Getting ready for winter may mean taking care of your landscaping and looking into insulating your home. While these are definitely good things to do, you should also pay special care to get the chimney in your home inspected. Having a thorough chimney inspection Pasadena CA done can tell you a lot about whether it’s in good condition and whether or not you can confidently use it during the upcoming winter.
Avoid Harming Any Nesting Wildlife
If the temperature has already begun dropping where you live, there’s the chance that your chimney has been made into a temporary home by some form of wildlife. While you may have heard chirps and other noises from inside the chimney, it could also be quiet and difficult to tell whether or not your chimney is being inhabited.
Having a professional take a look at your chimney can ensure that you won’t be harming any wildlife nesting inside and that they can be safely relocated.
Make Sure That Air Flows Properly
When you begin using your fireplace, it’s very important that the air is able to flow from the chimney without any issues. This is vital to keep in mind since not having a space for air to escape can lead to breathing issues and smoke inhalation in your home.
Making sure that the air flows out properly can be taken care of with an inspection.
Using your fireplace without an inspection can lead to serious issues which is why it is so important to bring in a professional for a chimney inspection. We encourage you to contact us at Fiddler on the Roof Chimney Service to schedule this service for your home.
