Chimney maintenance and proper care is an important part of being a homeowner. If you have a fireplace and chimney in your home, then you need to make sure it is looked after to ensure maximum efficiency and safety.
If there's a problem with your chimney it can be extremely difficult to identify what exactly that problem is. A CCTV Inspection is the quickest, easiest and most efficient way to do so. The high quality footage captured by the CCTV is used to accurately diagnose the issue and create a repairs solution. Using the latest in CCTV cameras and technology, S.H.L Chimney Specialists carry out chimneys surveys all across Cork.
As soot, dirt and smoke residue build up in your chimney, the chances of a chimney fire also increase. Many homeowners are unaware of the dangers that a dirty chimney possesses. Chimney fires, characterised by loud popping noises and dense smoke emitting from the flue can often go undetected. But if these fires spread they can cause untold damage to your home.
Wood burning stoves, or wood burners, is an appliance used to heat homes in place of the more traditional fireplaces. Usually made from cast iron or steel, they generate heat by burning fuel in an enclosed chamber.
Despite being around for many years, recently there has been a huge increase in the popularity of wood burners in Irish homes and it’s not hard to see why.
A fireplace is a wonderful addition to any home, providing warmth and cosiness on cold winter nights. Our fireplaces are effectively useless without a functioning chimney, which can be prevented by a number of chimney problems. The most common of these problems, especially with older chimneys, is leaking. There are several reasons why your chimney may have leaks which will require repairs from a professional such as S.H.L Chimney Specialists.
