When it’s chilly outside, it’s nice to make your home warm inside.  This is the time of year when everyone looks to use their fireplaces for quick warmth and relaxing ambience.  Unfortunately, however, this is also the most common time of year for house fires caused by dirty fireplaces. Just this past weekend, Savannah Fire Rescue had to cut holes in a Tatem Street home to put out a chimney fire. The fireplace was dirty, and long overdue for a professional cleaning and inspection; however, it was used anyway.Firefighters everywhere see this sort of problem more than you may realize – even in Florida!This is a common danger that can be easily prevented by having your chimney professionally cleaned and inspected by a CSIA-Certified Chimney Sweep, and making sure it is safe BEFORE using it. Call Chimney Champions® at 904-268-7200, or book online to schedule your service today!

Chimney Crown – Chimney Cap – Chimney Cover… What do they all mean?

September 1, 2018 | Information

You may have already seen the recent Chimney Champions® blog posts discussing the differences between a CHIMNEY CAP and a CHIMNEY CHASE COVER.  But what about a CHIMNEY CROWN?…Despite what its name may lead you to believe, crowns are not just for fancy chimney systems!  A chimney crown is a concrete or masonry slab, and its purpose is to seal off the top of a chimney.  While crowns do provide great protection to the systems when present and in good condition, a Chimney Cap is still a very necessary component.It is important to know that not all systems are the same.  Different chimneys will have different styles and sizes of caps and other parts.  And not all chimneys have chimney crowns.One size definitely does not fit all when it comes to a proper-functioning chimney and fireplace.  To make sure YOUR system is in the best possible condition, click here to contact … Continued
