Look, we get it. You’re planning your summer vacation, working long hours to make that vacation a reality, and you’re even working on some home improvement projects (looking at you Dad). The last thing that is on your mind is having your chimney serviced.  

It’s summer. It’s hot. The cold months are far away, especially for the south. So why is summer the best time to have your chimney swept? 

1. You catch major problems early
One of the biggest things we hear in the chimney industry is ‘Man, I wish I would’ve known sooner.’ Summer is the perfect opportunity to have your chimney swept because it allows you to find major problems before winter hits and you need your chimney working properly.  

2. Water Leaks Happen Mostly During the Summer.
Major storms occur during the summer, and this can cause severe water damage to your chimney. We don’t feel the need to belabor water damage, as we will discuss that in other posts.

3. Better Availability
As winter nears, chimney sweeps become booked as people try to save money by using their chimney’s. Chimney sweeps work year-round, therefore the availability opens up.

Essentially, you have a better chance of getting booked when you book during the summer. Let us also make it clear that it’s not impossible to be booked during the winter.

At Advanced Fireplace Technicians, we look forward to serving you!
