In Evanston It Doesn’t Take Long To Learn About Aelite Chimney Specialties

Once you are introduced to Aelite Chimney Specialties, you will know that we are here to protect you from the fire and carbon monoxide hazards that can originate in your chimney, venting system, fireplace and clothes dryer. Here is an overview of the services we provide to homeowners in Evanston:

The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) urge homeowners to have a professional chimney sweep inspect (and clean, if necessary) their property once a year. A yearly cleaning and inspection is key to preventing fires and protecting your family and pets from potential carbon monoxide poisoning. Even your clothes dryer vent needs to be professionally inspected and cleaned once a year. Cleaning the lint filter doesn’t remove the lint, debris, or any nesting insects or animals deep in the vent. A professional cleaning will take care of the entire venting system.

Be An Informed Consumer

You should be very careful who you let clean your chimney. For your protection and peace of mind, you need to know that the technicians working in your home are CSIA-certified and ours are. The technician needs be fully trained on how to clean your chimney without making a mess in your home—ours know how. You also need to be sure that when performing inspections, the technician knows what to look for and how to correct any potential hazards—ours do!

We have maintained a “Zero Complaint” record with the BBB since our start in 2005. We value our customer’s positive feedback for our services, and have an “A” rating on Angie’s List.

Life In Evanston

Evanston is a strong community just 12 miles north of downtown Chicago. But that doesn’t mean Evanston hides in the shadow of the big city. Evanston has a strong community rich in education, commerce, recreation, faith and community spirit.

The Ivy Of The Midwest

Northwestern University was founded in 1851 by John Evanston, (yes, the same man the city was named for) and other businessmen and community leaders. The University is recognized as a major research institution in the United States. Northwestern’s undergraduate program, Graduate School, and the Kellogg School of Management are located on the Evanston campus. The University is privately owned and is the largest employer in Evanston.

Rotary International

Evanston is home to the headquarters of Rotary International. Rotary was founded in 1905 by Paul P. Harris as an organization where “neighbors, community leaders, and global citizens unite for common good”. Rotarians play a key role in community service in Evanston and around the world. Globally, Rotary is a leader in eradicating polio. Locally, Rotarians work hand in hand with charitable organizations, participate in community service projects, and sponsor their own fundraising events with a strong focus on serving the youth of Evanston with mentorships, afterschool programs and scholarships.

Lake Michigan

Lake Michigan is the perfect place for residents and visitors. The beautiful lake offers 4 seasons of enjoyment. There are six beaches in Evanston: Lighthouse Beach, Clark Street Beach, Dog Beach, Greenwood Street Beach, Lee Street Beach, and South Boulevard Beach. The beaches offer sand play, swimming, boat launches, kayak and sailboat rentals and lessons, and kayak fishing. The Levy Senior Center even offers lakefront fitness classes!

We All Scream For Ice Cream

Everyone loves ice cream and ice cream soda. And so did folks in 1890, when Blue Laws were passed that prohibited the sale of carbonated soda on Sundays. This act financially hurt the soda jerks of the time and caused soda lovers to be very disgruntled as well. In a creative work-around, carbonated syrup was used as a topping over the ice cream rather than as beverage. Thus, the first ice cream “sundae”!
