We Offer Oil & Gas Furnace Flue Sweeping

You remember to take care of the chimney attached to your fireplace every year, but are you keeping your oil or gas furnace flue swept as well? Oil and gas each create their fair share of corrosive byproducts that can build up and damage or decrease the size of the flue, increasing fire and carbon monoxide hazards and reducing appliance performance. Sure, build up may not occur as rapidly as it does in your fireplace or stove, but it’s still corrosive and can pose a threat to safety and performance.

You may be thinking, “Wait, I thought my oil provider serviced the furnace flue.” You’re not alone in your thinking. Many homeowners falsely believe that the oil provider sweeps the furnace flue when that’s not the case. So what about your furnace flue? Is it time to schedule a sweeping? Contact Sweepnman!

We’ve been cleaning oil and gas furnace flues for more than a decade and we are Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified venting professionals. We know what to do and what not to do to ensure a cleaner, safer, more efficient furnace, regardless of fuel type.

How Often Should Your Furnace Flue Be Swept?

There is no hard and fast rule for how often a furnace flue should be swept, so we can’t give you a time frame set in stone. Just as you do with your chimney, you’ll want to have your furnace flue inspected every year so you know when a sweeping is needed. During an inspection, we’ll check for corrosive buildup, debris, or blockages, and let you know if any repairs, sweepings, or services are needed.

Keep in mind that after any heating flue service is performed, Sweepnman, Inc. recommends contacting a plumber or oil burner technician to perform annual service on the appliance.
