Do you need chimney swept if you've a wood stove?
The answer is most certainly "yes" and really the best time to have it done is at the end of the burning season. However, a stove can run poorly and be inefficient if you do have your chimney swept as tar and soot can deposit in the chimney restricting the area in the chimney which in turn reduces the draw through the chimney. So to make your wood or multifuel stove continue to serve you well then it is essential to have your chimney swept and to use seasoned wood. Chimney sweeps can be busy at this time of year, but it is better to have your chimney swept than to leave it until next year.
