FIRE PREVENTION • TRUSTWORTHY TECHNICIANS • FIREPLACE EFFICIENCY
The U.S. Fire Administration reports that an estimated 25,000 fires and 30 deaths yearly are attributed to chimney fires. Chimney fires can occur as a result of creosote deposits in your chimney. Creosote is the build up of residue that is formed as a burning fire exhausts through your chimney to cooler air creating condensation and ultimately sticking to the lining walls of your chimney. Creosote is extremely flammable and excessive build up can lead to a chimney fire.
As Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) members and Certified Chimney Sweeps, Cunningham’s knowledgeable and trustworthy technicians will inspect/clean your home’s fireplace chimneys for safe use and peace of mind for your family. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standard states that a home’s chimney shall be inspected and cleaned at least once yearly–if you haven’t had your chimney serviced this year, make an appointment today so you can safely enjoy your home’s fireplace. See Commercial Chimney Services.
RELIABLE EXPERTISE • DAMAGE PREVENTION • HIGH SAFETY STANDARDS
Over time chimneys deteriorate due to exposure to water and the elements. Moisture penetrates materials then freezes and expands, causing stress on your chimney and may cause interior and exterior damage to masonry work including spalling and broken brickwork, decayed mortar and cracked flue liner tile–which may prevent a chimney from drafting properly. The reliable professionals at Cunningham can help by repairing the chimney’s cement crowning and brickwork, preventing water from penetrating your chimney. Plus, adding chimney base flashing will prevent water from infiltrating your roofing in the future. Other services include:
Chimney Liner Installations: Installation of stainless steel chimney liners will protect your home from heat transfer to combustibles. Chimney liners are considered extremely safe, durable and efficient in the safe expulsion of gases and heat from your home.
Chimney Cap Installations: Stainless steel chimney caps help limit rainwater that enters your chimney. They also prevent animals from entering your chimney and nesting inside, which can result in reduced drafting and even a chimney fire.
HOME AIR DUCT CLEANING
CLEAN AIR QUALITY • SAVE ENERGY • COST-EFFICIENT
Residential Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems are constantly working to provide comfort and circulate air. This daily, continuous cycle causes substantial accumulation of dust particles, allergens, fungi, bacteria, mold and other contaminants in the system. Cleaning your duct system removes these contaminants and prevents them from being circulated throughout your home.
The systematic cleaning of your HVAC system not only improves air quality and provides a safe and healthy environment for you and your family, but it also maximizes the productivity of your system and saves energy. Clean ducts require less energy to run and therefore make your heating/cooling your home more cost-efficient. NADCA recommends an inspection and cleaning of your ductwork every 3-5 years for good airflow and peak performance of your HVAC system.
Cunningham Duct Cleaning Co. is completely insured and has been a certified member of the NADCA since 1993. Our service specialists are rigorously trained to follow all of the NADCA’s stringent requirements and are OSHA certified–so you can rely on us for experienced and professional care of your HVAC system. See Commercial Duct Cleaning.
Duct Wrapping: Simple insulation of your interior ductwork improves your HVAC system’s performance by retaining heat and cool air, optimizing the energy efficiency of your system–saving money and extending the life of your equipment. Cunningham uses quality materials to encapsulate ductwork, preventing moisture and loss of energy, as well as reducing the growth of microorganisms for a cleaner, more proficient system.
