Fires are Burning Poorly


When you have problems starting a fire in your Suffolk County fireplace or keeping a fire burning for several hours, this is an indication of a problem in the chimney shaft. Often, there is something that is preventing the proper flow of air through the chimney. In order to have a properly burning fire, you need to have good airflow through your chimney. Too much air can extinguish a fire while not enough airflow will keep it from burning correctly. If you are having a problem keeping your fire burning, contact Ageless Chimney to inspect your home’s fireplace and chimney. We will make sure that you are ready for a nicely burning fire as soon as Winter hits!

Odors Coming From Fireplace or Chimney


Do you know that warm, comforting smell of a freshly burning fire? That’s what your Suffolk County fireplace should always smell like. Sometimes you may notice an unpleasant and foul odor. That indicates a problem with the chimney shaft. This means that the updraft system is not working properly. This can be considered an emergency because foul smells from a faulty updraft could mean that there are gases inside your house. These toxins could lead to respiratory distress or death, so if you notice a foul smell near your fireplace, call us immediately! As one of the best chimney companies on East Shoreham, NY, we are happy to provide emergency services.


You Notice Black Grease or Creosote in Your Fireplace


Something you should check for every so often is grease or creosote in your Suffolk County chimney or fireplace. If you reach inside your fireplace to touch the walls, and your fingers come out covered in a black, greasy substance, you could have a problem with the internal structure of your chimney. This substance develops over several months in the internal structures of your home’s chimney, but the grease is dangerous. In some cases, creosote can begin to burn, leading to an internal chimney fire that can burn through the walls into a room. Creosote also contains chemicals that are not safe to breathe, and you should have the grease removed immediately. If you notice any of this, please call Ageless Chimney right away!

Excess Smoke While Burning a Fire


When a fire creates a buildup of smoke inside your home, this means there is a blockage in the chimney shaft. Numerous things can create a blockage inside a chimney, including leaves and branches from trees. If there is a buildup of grease on the interior surfaces of a fireplace chimney, then the debris from burning wood can collect on the substance, creating a blockage. This can lead to hazardous toxins in your home, so it is best to have Ageless Chimney inspect your fireplace right away.

Have a Bad Damper?

Your fireplace’s damper needs to be in top condition. The damper regulates the flow of air into a fireplace and chimney. If the damper is tough to open or close, then you may need to have it repaired. Doing so will save you money on any further repairs.

Animal Noises From Inside the Walls

Have you noticed a fluttering or scurrying noise inside the walls near your fireplace? If so, then you need to have your fireplace and chimney inspected. Animals such as raccoons and squirrels can enter a chimney on a home’s rooftop to live inside the structure. In addition, birds can build bird’s nests inside a chimney, creating a blockage that is composed of grass and straw that can burn down a home.
