Summer is drawing to a close, but there is still time to get things done before cool weather hits. When October arrives, chimney sweep companies will be busy until January–a time called the fall rush. You can get all your chimney work completed before this time and save yourself a headache. When you’re looking for a fireplace upgrade, summer is the best time. Summer offers the best benefits when it comes to fireplace upgrades, but it isn’t the only time you can work on your fireplace and chimney.
In the winter, you will need to stop using your fireplace for 24 hours before a chimney sweep works on it. This can leave you in the cold if you depend on the fireplace for even supplemental heat. Schedule your fireplace upgrade during the summer and avoid this type of interruption.
Allow More Time for the Best Selection
By using the last few weeks of summer to complete your fireplace upgrade, you allow a few weeks to get the job done right. That means you won’t rush important decisions while you plan your update with your favorite expert chimney sweep. You can browse the options available and find the one that best suits your home, needs, and personality.
Allow Time for Repairs and Inspection
According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America, a chimney system requires an inspection if changes are made to the system. That means when your new fireplace is installed and the job is complete, you still need an inspection. This inspection will identify any weaknesses or damages to the chimney system that can put your family at risk and lead to damage, fire, or decreased efficiency. A summer upgrade leaves time for an inspection and possible repairs before cold weather and the fall rush.
