Wood Heater Chimney Cleaning

Here at Downs Heating, Cooling & Outdoors we not only sell wood burning heaters but we also provide a chimney flue cleaning service.

Did you know that unmaintained wood fire flues are among the major causes of house fires in Australia during our winter season. 

When your wood heater is burning a byproduct called creosote is given off from the wood, this resin can build up in the flue over time and allow the flue to catch fire.

Industry experts The Australian Home Heating Association recommend your wood heater should be serviced and the flue cleaned once a year, that's where we come in.

Our experienced team not only install wood burners but we also service and help you maintain them.
