Enjoying some quality time by the fire is one of the best moments in winter, whether by yourself or with a loved one. Some hot chocolate, a good book or some relaxing music should complete the ambiance. This scenario, however, is only possible if your chimney is in good shape. This is why you should schedule maintenance, chimney masonry repair and other jobs related to your fireplace in the spring.
But why spring? Here are some of the best reasons:
It’s the Season After the Full Use of Your Fireplace
If your fireplace needs some inspection, it’s probably the time after the season when it was used the most. By having a chimney sweep clean your chimney and inspect it for signs of potential problems right after winter, you can save money because those red flags will not have a chance to get worse.
You Can Avoid Higher Costs
Most people have their chimneys and fireplaces checked and repaired before winter, which makes the end of fall a peak season for chimney maintenance professionals. They may charge higher fees because of the high demand. If you have your chimney inspected way before winter, you are more likely to get a more affordable deal and also pick the date without competing with other homeowners.
You Can Avoid Nasty Odors From the Chimney When It Gets Too Hot
You can have your chimney maintained in the summer, too, but when it gets too hot, your chimney might start producing nasty odors that can enter your home. It’s also a very uncomfortable time for chimney sweeps to work. Have your chimney cleaned and checked before the full heat of summer starts. Do it in the spring.
You Can Avoid Uncomfortable Winters
If your chimney develops a problem in the middle of a freezing winter, you’ll be forced to spend cold days and nights while a professional works on your chimney. You might also have to pay higher fees. Performing the inspection, repair or chimney relining in the spring can help you avoid this issue.
