With millions of Americans in 2016 expecting a tax return, the ways to spend the money is as unique as those expecting a refund.

By using your tax refund to update your fireplace or chimney, your refund will add value and long-lasting beauty to your home. Some of the projects that you can do to increase value, add beauty or keep you and your family safe, include

– Upgrade your fireplace to become an efficient heater with a wood or gas insert: Modern wood and gas inserts are extremely clean burning, highly efficient heating systems that can act as a primary or secondary heating system for your house. Rooftop Chimney Sweeps can help you choose from many of our high quality models with lifetime warranties.

– Cleaning and inspecting your chimney: While it’s not as exciting as a fireplace makeover, having your fireplace cleaned and inspected is an important component to make sure your system is safe and operating efficiently. A professional chimney cleaning will remove creosote — a hazardous, tar-like substance that sticks to the interior wall of your chimney and could catch fire in intense heat — and a thorough inspection will identify any potential issues. Chimney cleaning and inspections are recommended to be conducted annually. If you haven’t had a cleaning or inspection done recently, your tax refund is a perfect way to get it done.

– Converting your traditional fireplace to gas: A gas fireplace is an efficient and easy way to heat your home. Gas units can be turned on by a simple switch and conversion takes usually less than a day to provide years of warmth and value to your home.

At Rooftop Chimney, we can help with any of these projects or more. If you’re in the Alexandria, McLean, Falls Church or anywhere in the region, we will work hard to provide the chimney cleaning service you deserve.
