Reasons for a Chimney Inspection

Every fire safety agency in the U.S. recommends having your chimney inspected when:

  • It’s been more than a year since the last inspection
  • Something isn’t working right
  • You see obvious signs of damage
  • You’ve experienced a chimney fire
  • You’re selling your home
  • You’re adding a new appliance to vent through your chimney

What you need to know about chimney fires

Not all chimney fires are big and obvious. The fact is, many chimney fires start and go out on their own without anyone in the home being aware of them. But regardless of the size of the fire, damage can be done to the chimney liner, the chimney masonry and parts of the home near the chimney.

Be aware of these signs of a chimney fire:

  • Strange tapping or clicking noises
  • A rumbling sound like from a train
  • Chunks of charred material falling into the firebox
  • Large amounts of dark smoke coming from either end of the chimney

If you notice any of these signs, call 911 immediately and leave the house.

Carbon monoxide concerns

A gas fireplace that isn't inspected regularly can cause problems beyond a fire. One of the most serious problems is carbon monoxide.
