Peace of mind, one flue at a time...
Chimneys are one of the most magical components of your home. They invoke a feeling of warmth and homecoming when you pull into the driveway, they're an integral part of spending a romantic evening in front of a roaring fire, and they are Santa's favorite way to deliver gifts.
Chimneys are also an essential and often neglected part of your home's heating system and the second leading cause of house fires.
So when was the last time you thought about your chimney?
Was it when you got the home inspector's report two days before closing?
Did you give it a passing thought the last time you went to light a fire in the fireplace?
Did you know you should get your chimney inspected every year?
"Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary."
- The National Fire Protection Association Standard 211 
Even if you don't have a fireplace, most home heating systems use the chimney to vent dangerous gases like carbon monoxide which means that your chimney still needs an annual inspection.
According to the National Fire Protection Agency, in 2013 chimneys were responsible for 23,100 fires with $96.9 million in property damage in the United States.
Debris from animals, nests, creosote, and water damage from rain and melting snow all contribute to create a potentially hazardous situation that can result in a house fire.
The good news is that chimney blockages and damage can be easily found and corrected with routine inspection and cleaning.
Owned and operated by US Air Force veteran John Ceaser, Ceaser Chimney provides a variety of chimney services including inspections, cleaning, relining, waterproofing, cap replacement and masonry restoration.
You may look up at your roof and think "that sounds expensive," but Ceaser Chimney's yearly chimney inspection and maintenance services are surprisingly affordable with a Level 1 visual inspection costing only $85 and most cleaning services averaging around $175.
Compared to the potential cost of smoke, water or fire damage caused by a blocked or damaged chimney, that $85 is a budget-friendly expense that will ensure your family's comfort and safety.
If you haven't had your chimney inspected since you bought your house, give Ceasers a call. They're prompt, professional and courteous and for less than the cost of two week's worth of lattes you'll head into the holidays with the peace of mind of knowing that your family and house are safe.
