What you don’t know about your chimney can hurt you, especially if you have a gas-heating appliance that uses your masonry chimney as a venting system.
Every day, without any visible signs, the acid produced by your gas appliance may be eating away at the inside of your chimney. The resulting damage can compromise the safety of your family and the value of your home. A thorough annual inspection of your chimney, as recommended by the National Fire Protection Association and the Chimney Safety Institute of America, can alert you to potential problems before they become costly dangerous.
