Chimney systems and appliances should be inspected on an annual basis. According to NFPA 211 (National Fire Protection Agency) which provides the standard for Chimneys, fireplaces, vents and solid fuel burning appliances should be inspected yearly. Having an annual inspection and cleaning performed is the best way to ensure that your chimney is in good condition for the burning season as well as preventing chimney fires.
Not just wood burning appliances need to be serviced. Make sure to get your gas appliance inspected regularly as well. Manufacturers of natural and gas burning appliances recommend the annual inspection and cleaning of all their products. Your gas fireplace could be running more efficiently and safely with regular service.
