Find answers to commonly asked questions about our maintenance services.

How often should I schedule maintenance?

Regular maintenance is recommended at least once a year to ensure optimal performance and safety of your stove.

What are common maintenance issues?

Regular maintenance of your stove is essential to ensure its efficiency, safety, and longevity.

Here are some common stove maintenance issues you might encounter:

Creosote Buildup in Chimney:

Issue: Creosote is a byproduct of burning wood, and it can accumulate in the chimney over time. This buildup can lead to chimney fires if not addressed.

Maintenance: Schedule regular chimney sweeps to remove creosote and other debris from the chimney. Burning seasoned wood and maintaining proper airflow can help reduce creosote buildup.

Burner or Heating Element Issues:

Issue: Gas or electric stoves may experience problems with burners or heating elements, such as uneven heating or failure to ignite.

Maintenance: Clean burners regularly to remove food debris and ensure proper ignition. For electric stoves, inspect and replace faulty heating elements as needed.

Gasket Wear and Tear:

Issue: The gaskets around the stove door or other access points may wear out over time, leading to heat loss and reduced efficiency.

Maintenance: Check gaskets for signs of wear and tear. Replace them if they are damaged to maintain a tight seal and prevent heat loss.

Door Seal Issues:

Issue: If the stove door doesn't seal properly, it can lead to inefficient burning and loss of heat.

Maintenance: Inspect the door seal for any gaps or damage. Replace the gasket if needed, and ensure the door closes tightly.

Ash and Debris Accumulation:

Issue: Ashes and debris can accumulate in the firebox, affecting combustion and reducing efficiency.

Maintenance: Regularly clean the ash pan and firebox, removing ashes and debris. Dispose of ashes in a safe manner, following manufacturer recommendations.

Airflow Problems:

Issue: Insufficient airflow can result in poor combustion and reduced heating efficiency.

Maintenance: Check air vents and inlets for any obstructions. Clean or replace air filters as recommended by the manufacturer.

Damaged or Cracked Firebricks:

Issue: The fire bricks lining the inside of the stove can crack or break over time.

Maintenance: Inspect the firebricks for damage. Replace any cracked or broken bricks to maintain the integrity of the stove and ensure proper insulation.

Regularly referring to your stove's user manual for specific maintenance guidelines and scheduling professional inspections as needed can help prevent and address these common maintenance issues.

Can I perform maintenance myself?

While some basic home maintenance can be done by homeowners, it is recommended to hire a professional for thorough inspections and repairs. This will also ensure that your warranties are valid. Some homeowner insurance companies require chimney sweep certificates.

How long does maintenance take?

The duration of maintenance depends on the complexity of the job, but it typically takes a few hours to complete.

What is the cost of maintenance?

The cost of maintenance varies based on the extent of the work needed. Contact us for a personalized quote.

How do I know if my chimney’s cowl needs replacing?

The chimney cowl, also known as a chimney cap or chimney top, serves several important functions, including preventing downdrafts, keeping out rain and debris, and containing sparks. If you suspect that your chimney cowl needs replacing, here are some signs to look for:

Visible Damage: Inspect the cowl for any visible signs of damage. This could include cracks, dents, rust, or missing parts. If you notice any structural issues, it might be time for a replacement.

Rust: If your chimney cowl is made of metal, such as stainless steel or galvanised steel, check for signs of rust. Rust can weaken the structure and reduce the effectiveness of the cowl.

Loose or Missing Parts: Ensure that all parts of the cowl are securely attached. If you find loose screws, bolts, or other components, tighten or replace them. Missing parts can affect the cowl's ability to function properly.

Water Leakage: If you notice water leaking into your chimney, it may indicate a problem with the cowl. The cowl should be preventing rainwater from entering the chimney. If you find water inside, it could be a sign that the cowl is damaged or improperly installed.

Draft Issues: If you experience draft problems, such as smoke coming back into the house instead of venting properly up the chimney, the cowl may be the culprit. Malfunctions or blockages in the cowl can impede the flow of air and affect the draft.

Bird Nests or Debris: Check for any nests, leaves, or other debris that may have accumulated in or around the cowl. Such obstructions can hinder the proper functioning of the chimney.

Age: Like any part of a building, chimney cowls have a lifespan. If your cowl is old, it might be more prone to deterioration. Check the manufacturer's recommendations for the expected lifespan of your specific cowl.

If you observe any of these issues, it's advisable to consult with a professional chimney sweep or a qualified technician. They can provide a more thorough inspection and recommend whether repair or replacement is necessary. Regular maintenance and timely replacement of damaged components can help ensure the safety and efficiency of your chimney system.
