Protecting our Environment

Your chimney, your fire (appliance), your fuel and the way you operate your fire can make a big difference to emissions so it’s important that the whole system is functioning properly. Guild members are trained to advise on all aspects of efficient fuel / appliance use, keeping you safer and helping you burn efficiently.

Chimney Safety


Perhaps only 30% of your sweeps work is cleaning your chimney. The rest of the job comprises multiple small checks, tests and appraisals of your whole system including fuel and user operation. If there is something you need to know to get more from your fire, a member of The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps will be happy to tell you.
