Smoky Fireplaces

The Fireplae Technician can resolve problems caused by stratification, the neutral pressure plane and the effect of negative air pressure in the home with the use of a Magnehelic Differential Pressure Gage.

Wood Supply Testing

can be tested for you with a Protimeter to determine the water content to verify if it is a suitable combustible material. 

Wet wood will not burn properly and can leave solid residues of acetic and pyroligenous acids that with age transforms by heat into hard, porous, shiny material or a flaky dust. This is called creosote and can ignite at any time.
