Before Brad became a chimney sweep, he was an HVAC technician and installer for many years. He knows the ins an outs of furnaces, boilers, fireplaces, wood stoves and air conditioners – and to this end, he knows the way that they should be vented for the safety of the home’s occupants. This is also why he is always concerned when he sees something that is not vented properly and ultimately bad venting causes Brad to lose sleep.
We encourage everyone to make sure that they are hiring qualified professionals when installing any sort of heating device and if you are planning on doing it yourself, PLEASE for the love of venting and a good nights sleep, make sure you consult with the professionals and don’t be afraid to spend a little bit of money for your own safety. That is my soap box for the day.
