Furnace Flue Inspections and Repair
A furnace flue, like a chimney, vents gases from burning fuel out of your home, and although it does not build up as many particles as a fireplace chimney, it can still get dirty. Acidic condensate can build up within the flue, deteriorating the flue lining and causing problems down the line. Furnace flues are not maintained by the utility company or the fuel provider, so homeowners in Princeton NJ need to hire a chimney sweep company like Mercer County Chimney Services to handle their flue maintenance. Our technicians can handle any inspection, cleaning or repairs your furnace flue might need.

Time, the weather and the changing seasons all have an impact on a chimney, and masonry will deteriorate eventually. If a chimney is beyond repair, our fully licensed, trained, and insured technicians can rebuild entire sections of the chimney. Sometimes only the mortar of a brick and mortar chimney deteriorates and needs to be repaired through tuckpointing. If your chimney’s masonry is crumbling in Princeton NJ or any other part of Mercer County, our technicians can handle the job of repairing your beautiful chimney.
Chimney Leak Repair In Princeton NJ
Chimneys in Princeton NJ and the rest of Mercer County are under constant threat of water damage. Leaks in a chimney can cause costly damage not just to the chimney itself, but also to the surrounding walls, ceilings, and attics of your home. For this reason, it is critical that leaks are taken care of as soon as possible. Often the problem is due to damage in one of the pieces of the chimney such as the crown or the flashing. We can also install a chimney cap to keep water out of the flue if your chimney does not already have one. Sometimes masonry work needs to be done if the leak is coming from the brick and mortar itself. Our technicians can also waterproof your chimney with an air-permeable coating.
The leading cause of chimney fires in the United States is creosote buildup inside the chimney. Preventing this danger is easy, though, as all that is needed is an annual chimney sweep. Mercer County Chimney Services provides chimney cleaning to all homes in Princeton NJ and the rest of the county. This will prevent the buildup of particles caused by smoke, like creosote, as well as clear any debris that may have fallen in from the outside. Not only to blocks create a fire hazard, but they also prevent a chimney from venting properly. This can become extremely dangerous if gasses like carbon monoxide are kept from venting and end up inside your home. Keep your home safe and make sure you have your chimney swept once a year even if you do not use your fireplace.
If you are regularly using a chimney in Princeton NJ or the rest of the county, it is recommended that you have your chimney inspected annually. Inspections are also required in New Jersey whenever buying or selling property. Our technicians are capable of performing all 3 levels of chimney inspections as defined by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Without an inspection, it may be impossible to spot any damage in your chimney before it becomes a serious issue.
