About The Chimney Swift
The Chimney Swift Ltd. is a chimney cleaning and inspection company. You will have peace of mind knowing that your chimney, stove or fireplace is operating safely for you and your family. If you need sweeping, a WETT inspection or chimney cap installation please contact us at our Guelph or Kitchener office.
A chimney cap is a specially designed metal cover that is mounted on top of a chimney or fireplace. A chimney cover is designed to prevent incoming rain water from eating away at the mortar and bricks, as well as prevent birds and small animals from entering the chimney. Chimney caps can prevent fires caused by burning embers that exit the chimney.
What is WETT? What is a WETT inspection? Why do I need a WETT inspection? Having a WETT inspection done before listing a home alerts the homeowner of any potential repairs that may require attention. Making any repairs ahead of listing your home avoids having these issues become stumbling blocs when a purchaser submits an offer.
Did you know that today’s modern wood-burning appliances are much more energy efficient than those of 20 years ago and therefore burn less wood for the same heat. Updating your 20 year old stove to an energy efficient one not only saves you money but is also kinder to your environment. (Ask our WETT certified technicians how to improve your installation.)
