Aelite Is The “Wright” Way To Stay Safe In Glencoe

Glencoe is known for its prestigious homes, many of which were designed by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. And here at Aelite, we know how important it is to have professional chimney services performed in order to properly protect the homes of Glencoe from fire and other chimney and venting-related threats. Here are some ways can help you stay safe:

Bad News & Good News

The bad news is that your home has many potential health and fire hazards which can originate in your chimney, fireplace, and from your often overlooked clothes dryer vent. Accumulated creosote (a byproduct of combustion) is highly combustible, and the carbon particles of the soot can also get deep into your lungs and cause major health issues for you and your pets.

The good news is that the technicians at Aelite are able to remove these risks from your home with an annual inspection and cleaning, as recommended by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

As part of our service, we will perform a video scan, thoroughly clear and clean your chimney and venting system, and inspect it to ensure there are no cracks, leaks, or damages that will cause problems for you if left unintended. We also have the expertise to make the necessary repairs.
