Nothing is better than curling up in front of your fireplace on a cold winter’s night. Yet, fireplaces that are not properly maintained are also the source of toxic gases and terrifying fire hazards.

Your Chimney & Fireplace Specialists

It is essential to your safety that you do not neglect your chimney, fireplace and your often-overlooked dryer vent. The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) advise homeowners to have a thorough annual inspection performed by a certified chimney sweep to make sure that your wood- and fuel-burning appliances and chimney systems are operating up to code. The CSIA-certified technicians at Aelite are experienced in these inspections and also have the know-how to make any needed repairs or replace any malfunctioning parts.
