3 Ways to Save Money Over Time with a Chimney Inspection

It can be challenging to keep up with all the maintenance that homeownership requires. However, certain components can incur costly repairs or even create safety hazards if proper care is put off for too long. Chimney maintenance, though often overlooked by homeowners, is not something you can afford to delay. Trident Inspection Group offers chimney inspections to evaluate whether or not your chimney is safe to use and to determine what repairs you might need. Let’s explore three ways you can save money over time by investing in regular chimney inspections.

Chimney Inspection1. Avoid Fire Hazards

Did you know the Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends homeowners schedule an annual internal chimney inspection? Your chimney may have a buildup of creosote, a byproduct of burning wood, which can ignite and cause a fire. This would result in costly damage to your home and could put your family at risk. Our certified chimney inspectors will help you reduce this risk by checking your chimney for creosote.

2. Prevent Costly Repairs

When you schedule your annual chimney inspection with Trident Inspection Group, we can catch something before it escalates into a significant repair. We will assess your chimney for flue blockages, leaks, cracks, and other damage that can be repaired before it becomes extensive. You should also schedule an inspection if you’ve experienced a severe weather event that might have damaged the chimney area on your roof.

3. Improve Energy Efficiency

If you fail to maintain your chimney properly, it could cost you in the form of higher energy expenses. Any minor issues that an inspection would identify and immediately address with repairs could be causing your HVAC to work harder. Whether warm air is escaping your home in the cooler months or entering your home in the hotter months, you might end up paying more to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home.
