Chimney maintenance is a key aspect of an efficient, well burning wood heating system. All chimneys should be visually inspected once per year, and usually require annual sweeping. A chimney sweep involves clearing the chimney of all deposits, and depending on the system, sweeping the stove pipe, clearing out the fire box, emptying the base, and inspecting and vacuuming all components.
Kootenay Wood Energy also has the specialized tools and training for chimney deglazing – the removal of creosote build-up in clay-lined chimneys.
