Burn Right

Many of us now enjoy the comfort of a wood-burning stove or open fire and for some of us, it’s once again our main source of heating.

But if our fires are being used incorrectly we can be damaging our appliance or chimney, wasting money, and polluting the environment.

If on our visits, we see signs of this, we are able to give you advice on how to make the correct changes to achieve efficient and clean-burning.

Our services

Getting your chimney swept at least once a year is essential to reduce your chance of having a chimney fire and also to continue to improve our air quality. Throughout the year, your chimney can have a build-up of deposits or other obstructions I.e. bird's nests- these need to be removed to ensure gases from your fire can safely and efficiently leave your chimney.

As members of Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps and HETAS we offer professional sweeping services, advice on the condition of your chimney or appliance and we issue certificates after every sweep.

In addition to chimney sweeping we are qualified to carry out servicing and repairs to any solid fuel appliance, you may have installed. At some point during your appliance's life, it will need some maintenance. This could include new rope for a sufficient seal, new vermiculite fire bricks, and much more. These repairs are vital to ensure the longevity of your appliance.
