i converted my fireplace to propane a few years back. i was recommneded to
me that i have the chimney cleaned---this is a non-vented system, so the
flue is permanently closed.
should this chimney be periodically cleaned again? more than anything, i'm
thinking a visual inspection of the lining is a good thing.
also, i have a fuel oil fired furnace, and of course it has its own chimney.
i have never had this cleaned. should this be serviced/inspected by a
traditional chimney sweep, or should i call whoever services my furnace?
finally, both chimneys need their concrete caps replaced---sorry i don't
know if i have the terminology correct, but i'm talking about the concrete
that gets placed on top. it seems to serve the purpose of sealing up the
joint between the brick and the chimney lining.
i have no idea what type of contractor to call to handle such a small job.
do chimney sweeps typically offer expertise like this?
thanks for reading all of this...
