After a long winter, it’s tempting to put your chimney to the back of your mind until next fall, when the first crisp days of autumn make you want to start a fire in your home. But beyond putting it behind you, there are many great reasons why you should consider having a seasonal chimney inspection and cleaning for your New Braunfels home in the spring instead.

Why Spring is the Perfect Time for Chimney Cleaning and Inspection

  1. Late spring cold snaps. It’s practically an annual event, but sometime in the spring the weather will misbehave and suddenly it’s a cold evening that makes you want a hot fire you can enjoy again. Why not clean your fireplace and chimney in advance of this event so that you’re ready to go?
  2. Hurricane season. Need we say more? Between spinoff tornados, heavy rain, and high winds, hurricane season can have a big impact on how comfortable you are while waiting it out. If you’re ready to go, you can do some light cooking and enjoy a warm, comfortable home without any crazy arrangements to make it work.
  3. Unexpected power outages. Beyond hurricane season, there can be a wide range of reasons why the power can go out, from Elon’s Gigafactory Texas making a huge demand on the grid to a tree on the line from your neighbor’s nephew who thought he knew what he was doing. Having an extra source of light and heat is great at these times.
  4. Early fall cold snaps. Just like spring, fall can be upon you sooner than you know, and being able to curl up in front of a nice, hot fire with your loved ones can make the evening perfect. That’s not the time that you want to find out that your chimney cleaning and inspection service is booked several weeks out.
  5. Take advantage of off-season scheduling. Because virtually nobody has their chimney cleaned and inspected during the spring, you can schedule it at your convenience. You may even be able to recognize some unexpected savings by taking advantage of off-peak demand!
