Triple wall flues

Recommended Posts

Whenever a client asks me that question whether it's flues, filters, or gutters, my response is always the same: "As often as it gets dirty."

No one can specify a rigid schedule for maintenance on most home stuff. There are too many factors that can contribute to clogging and general wear and tear.

And no, cleaning logs don't work.

Well, sort of, but it's not a substitute for an actual sweeping. The Chimney Safety Institute has published a couple of papers on the subject. At first blush, they seem to contradict one another but actually they don't; you have to read into it.
