W elcome to the home of the "CHIMNEYSWEEP"our services are dedicated to making home wood fires an enjoyable and memorable experience.

We believe wood as a heating fuel is environmentally appropriate and economically beneficial.

A fireplace or wood burning stove is warm and cozy on a cold winter evening but can soon become a frighting experience with a chimney fire!! We sometimes forget why our forfathers changed to central heating systems. Wood burning appliances always require regular maintanence to be safe and reliable.

Tips
Burn good quality dry wood!
For high efficiancy appliances, that can maintain a very slow burning fire, try to have a good rip roaring fire regularly to prevent the continual creation of creazote.
If you use your wood burning appliance regularly it is important to have your chimney inspected and cleaned regularly by a qualified and certified chimney sweep.

Like any activity we engage in, there is a right and wrong way to use wood heating. Wood can be harvested and dried incorrectly, which results in dirty creosote producing burn and inefficent heat. Endeavour to be well informed about the wood you burn and the maintenance of your wood burning appliance.

When you decide to use wood heat, it shows that energy conservation and ecology matter to you. To help ensure that we maintain renewable wood energy, become an informed judge of firewood and and the efficiency and safety of burning wood.
Trees can be harvested sustainably, firewood can easily be dried properly, burned cleanly and efficiently. Remember when using this energy source we reduce greenhouse gas emissions from focil fuels which helps reduce global warming.

When you visit our sight we will endeavour to support this theory by keeping you informed so we can all learn to respect and use wood heat safely and at maximum efficiency. So visit us often to clear up misconceptions and keep abreast of new ideas.
Our newest venture "Pure Air Plus" is the result of searching for a solution to the back drafting or smoking back problem in your wood stove or fireplace. In our research we have found a solution to this phenominon and offer a unique product called "Plusaire" available through the Pure Air Plus division of Don Crole Chimney Services. To find out more about this product and how it works see the titles below on air quality and the stack effect.

Whatever energy sources we decide to use it will always have an impact on the on the environment "positive or negative is up to each one of us." The best energy sources are renewable as their environmental impacts tend to be low. Wood is a renewable energy source but with its own problems and limitations, some of which can be managed and minimized.
But when it is used effectively, wood is a fine fuel choice compared to the fossil fuels like oil, gas and coal, whose consumption leads to the depletion of the earths stores.
Compared to a tree( 50 to100 years renewal) it take millions of years to create these other deposits.
