Get a Chimney Inspection in the Winters. Here’s Why

Post by : Admin


For a lot of people, getting their chimneys inspected in winters is simply a matter of preventing fires and keeping their house warm throughout the cold season. However, what many people fail to acknowledge is that there’s a lot more that goes into a chimney’s well-being—all of which makes an annual chimney inspection all the more imperative.

Here’s what you need to know:

Reducing Repair Costs


You might think that calling a professional to inspect your chimney in winters is a waste of money, but is it really? Yes, you’ll be paying them this one time for the inspection, but you’ll also be saving money because:

  • A professional can detect structural errors in your chimney, which, taken care of in time, won’t require hefty chimney repairs in the future.
  • A professional will guide you on how to remove accumulated soot and creosote, therefore preventing a fire, and reducing possible future damage.
  • They will give you tips on how to personalize chimney maintenance, which will ensure the longevity of your chimney, thereby giving you the best value for your money.

It Might be Part of Your Insurance Requirements

Like most people, you might not have paid much heed when it comes to your home insurance details. After all, we don’t like reading Terms and Conditions—and that’s the biggest mistake anyone could make.

If your home insurance policy does mandate a regular annual chimney inspection or cleanup, you are obliged to get it done in order to comply with the agreement. Failure to do so entails more than a mere violation of your agreement—it means that in the event of a disaster, you might find yourself with a void agreement.

Imagine not getting any compensation from the insurance company you’re paying regularly just because you failed to keep up with one of their requirements. It sucks, but it’s perfectly legal, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
