Full-Service Fireplace Flue Inspections

Worry-free warmth for your Long Island home

The Importance of Fireplace Flue Inspections

Your fireplace keeps your Long Island home cozy and warm, and the fireplace flue helps to keep you and your family safe. Smoke and other contaminants that fire produces escape your home through the flue. The flue also regulates the flow of oxygen that fires need to burn into your fireplace. In short, the flue is an essential part of your fireplace system, and making sure it’s functioning properly is essential. The best way to do that is by having the structure professionally inspected.


Why are fireplace flue inspections so important? The following are just a few reasons:

Reduced risk of chimney fires

Improved ventilation

Increased efficiency

Identification of potential structural problems, such as cracks, leaks, or deterioration

In short, a flue inspection will improve the efficiency of your fireplace and enhance the comfort of your home; more importantly, it will secure the safety of your family and yourself.

Signs You Need to Have Your Fireplace Flue Inspected

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), chimneys and venting systems (including fireplace flues) should be inspected by a credible professional at least once a year; however, if you use your fireplace on a frequent basis, you may need to have it inspected more often. The following are telltale signs that it’s time to schedule a fireplace flue inspection:

  • Smoke pouring back into your house
  • Foul odors
  • Reduced efficiency; fires aren’t burning as powerfully as they usually do or having a hard time getting them to ignite
  • Debris buildup in the fireplace; broken bits of brick or mortar, for example
  • Creosote or soot buildup


If you’re experiencing any of the above-mentioned signs or any other issues, or if it’s been more than a year since you’ve had your fireplace flue inspected, contact 1800 Chimney to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

If you are looking for a good price and professional service then look no further. Paulie, the service technician is a rock star when it comes to chimneys, he sucessfully restored my 100 year old fireplace 2 years ago and did it for a super affordable price explaining everything to me along the way. I can now enjoy my fireplace like I always wanted. Highly recommended.
