Avoid Chimney Scams
Please be aware of fraudulent chimney sweep outfits
Don’t get lured by companies boasting unusually low rates. A quick online search will reveal that the average chimney costs approximately $150 and up to be cleaned. You should also be wary of companies that tell you that they work with PSE&G or the local fire department.
NJ doesn’t have strict laws when it comes to chimney companies which means a lot of chimney companies in NJ do not possess the correct credentials and licenses to provide quality chimney services.
Additional signs of scam companies
You should never use a chimney cleaning company that calls you on the phone and claims to have serviced the house for the previous owner.
Another common trick associated with dishonest business owners is to scare you into making a hasty decision for unnecessary work.
Avoid outfits offering “FREE inspections.” This is a tactic to sell you overpriced repairs.
Avoid sham chimney companies
Don’t use chimney companies that try to sell you a liner the same day of service. These are often poorly made liners. If you need a liner, make sure the contractor has a permit.
A properly sized liner is crucial to your home’s safety. The correct size is determined by the height of your chimney and the BTU’s of your heating and hot water appliances.
