? on frequency of chimney cleaning
I have one chimney with 3 flues. One flue is for the furnace and water heater, one flue is for a wood burning fireplace which is never used, and one is for a gas fireplace insert (in a formerly wood burning fireplace) which is used daily from October through Spring (usually April). All three flues have chimney caps. I am just curious how often I should have these flues cleaned?
If I was burning wood I would have the flue cleaned every year, but since the only flues being used are gas appliances/fireplace I am not sure what the cleaning requirements should be.
