Chimney maintenance is an important part of homeownership. Half of the country is still experiencing mild spring or fall weather this winter, but here in Pennsylvania, winter is in full force. As you switch your thermostat to “warm” this January, make sure your home is ready for fire season and during the most dangerous time of year for residential house fires, make sure every other system in your home is in safe and working order as well. At Anderson’s Chimney & Masonry Services, we don’t just do chimneys. We offer a broad menu of services that keep your chimney, appliances, and other heat systems in the home safe and efficient this year and in the future. Having your annual chimney maintenance done, and the systems serviced regularly saves money and damages later. A well-maintained home is also one that holds its value and experiences fewer mishaps over the years. Protect your property, your investment, and most of all protect your family this year and in future years by scheduling important services with Anderson’s.
Chimney Maintenance in Central and Central PA
Our neighbors, family, and friends residing in Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Perry, and York counties, as well as portions of Franklin, Lancaster, and Lebanon counties, are our top priority. Our goal is the safety and comfort of homeowners in our communities, and we better achieve this goal by maintaining our own certifications within the field. Anderson’s chimney sweeps are CSIA and F.I.R.E. certified inspectors as well as NFI-certified for installations and repairs. We make training and accreditation a priority because safety is a priority.
Our team has serviced homes and businesses in the area since 1990, providing skilled maintenance recommended by industry leaders. In fact, both the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommend routine chimney sweeps and annual inspections for the safest and most efficient chimney system possible. If you reside in our service area, or even near our service area, we can help keep your chimney working properly, and lasting longer by providing chimney sweeps [https://www.andersonchimney.com/our-services/chimney-sweeping/], diagnostic inspections [https://www.andersonchimney.com/our-services/chimney-sweeping/], and more.
We don’t stop with routine services that keep your system working, but we go above and beyond to keep it working well and lasting long. We don’t just diagnose a leaky chimney but prevent leaks by applying a waterproofing agent directly onto the masonry. This industrial water repellent penetrates deeply and keeps water out during the wettest springs and the harshest winters. The best way to protect your chimney and keep maintenance costs low is to schedule important routine appointments. When you do need repairs, however, you need to look no further than Anderson’s Chimney & Masonry Services for all of your chimney repairs.
Whether you notice a problem on your own, or it’s discovered by a technician during your annual chimney inspection, it’s important to get repairs done quickly. Putting off a repair can lead to dangerous fire hazards, carbon monoxide exposure, chimney leaks and water damage, and more. As the damage worsens over time, the cost of repairs will also rise. If your chimney needs repairs, call Anderson’s. We repair leaky chimneys, repair and rebuild fireplaces and chimney systems, repair masonry, reline flues, install caps and dampers, and custom-make crowns. Anything that your chimney system could possibly need through the years, we have done it and will do it. Are you not sure what your system needs? Give us a call and we can help you decide!
Sales and Installations
During the early spring, we see a lot of homeowners looking to upgrade with tax refund checks. If you’re looking to upgrade for efficiency or aesthetics, make sure you purchase your new appliance through a licensed dealer and have it installed by a certified professional. Fire appliances and parts should not be ordered online by just anyone. It is imperative that you hire only a professional—not just for your own safety, but to protect your investment and maintain your warranties and insurance policies.
At Anderson’s, we sell and install wood stoves, inserts, and fireplaces, gas stoves and inserts, and pellet appliances. Even if your existing unit is from another company or custom-built, we can service it.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
When it comes to fire safety, neglected chimneys are not the only threat. Nearly 3,000 home residential fires reported each year are caused by clothes dryer vents. These fires cause damage, injury, and even death, and the worst part about them is that they’re preventable. The majority of clothes dryer vent fires are caused by failure to clean the unit. At Anderson’s, part of our goal of keeping families safe in our community is to bring down the occurrence of these types of fires as well as chimney fires. We clean dryer vents so you don’t have to. This service will not only keep your family safer this winter and year-round, but it will help your unit to last longer, save you money in utilities, and help maintain a consistent temperature in your home.
We love our communities and we want our customers—new and old—to be safe and comfortable at home. If you reside in South Central PA and own a home or business with a fire appliance, neglected heat appliance, or clothes dryer that has never seen a professional service or installation, call Anderson’s today.
