Brighton Chimney Sweeps – When & Why You Should Sweep
Whether you are burning wood or coal on an open fire or a stove, you should have your chimney swept by a professional chimney sweep at least once a year. Soot and creosote that result from burning different fuels and debris from the brickwork inside your chimney quickly build up and can cause chimney fires and blockages.
If you haven’t used your fire in some time you MUST have it swept before you do. Most people use their fireplaces and stoves only during the colder months of the year. If it is blocked or partially blocked, smoke and other emissions (including deadly fumes like carbon monoxide) may not be able to escape properly up the chimney and they could come back into the room.

Brighton Chimney Sweeps – Fuel & Appliance Performance
There are a number of different solid fuels available for burning on open fires and stoves including all sorts of wood, ‘ordinary house coal’ and ‘smokeless or eco coal’. Some stoves are designed to be used with specific fuels and you should follow the stove manufacturers instructions.
Ordinary house coal produces the most amount of heat followed by hard woods. Smokeless coal produces the least amount of heat. Wood is often preferred for the experience, it produces more flames and a nicer aroma than coal. Wood is considered to be carbon neutral – burning puts back into the atmosphere what was taken out during growth, whereas burning coal puts a lot of carbon into the atmosphere. There are many types of wood and not all of them are suitable for burning so choosing the right wood is important. Read More
