We moved into our new house, and needed our fireplace converted from wood-burning to gas. After locating the gas line, Urs and Ryan installed the ceramic logs and hooked everything up. They explained everything in detail, so we'd know how to care for it and what to expect. They worked quickly, professionally, and cleaned everything up when they finished. We now have a beautiful gas fireplace in time for the holidays. We would recommend this company to anyone needing fireplace/chimney work, and look forward to using them in the future.

Urs and his team did a great job repairing my chimney. They were very knowledgeable and took the time to explain all of the problems I was having, along with all of the repair work that they did. They were punctual and keep me informed throughout their time at my house repairing a flashing and crown. They even offered to come out the next day, if my problem persisted and followed up with a courtesy call. I will be using them for any future chimney repairs and would recommend them to everyone!

Did some price comparison shopping for service we needed to have done, and AAS was much less expensive than competitors. The owner himself does the work, and is friendly, courteous, and was sweet with my young children. He competed the work very quickly and professionally, and pointed out several repairs I could do myself rather than trying to get me to pay him for the labor. Overall very pleased with his service!

I just had cleaning, three caps, inside masonry to the fireplace done, and a new crown of cement placed. The father and son duo were so kind to attend to these services within the same appointment after cleaning and inspection. They are coming back in the Spring to replace mortar on the chimney. An honest, knowledgeable, and very polite team!

Work was done by the owner and his son. Very respectable and friendly. All work was explained to me. He was on time and was able to work me in the schedule for the week when I was off. They were very clean and I would recommend them to neighbors and friends.

Excellent work done by the owner himself. Previous two companies that came out were unable to correct the problem that A.A.S. Service Inc. was able to fix in less than an hour. Definitely recommend, great business and friendly service.

Tips & Advices
As part of regular home maintenance, you can look for signs up build-up or debris accumulating in a fireplace. n addition to practicing safe wood burning and cleaning the in-home structure, you can also use a flashlight on occasion to inspect for any obvious cracks or blockage. Strong smells emanating from the fireplace when not in use may be an indication of the need to consult with a professional who can handle the broader inspection and any major issues that arise from it.
It can be dangerous not to have your chimney inspected from the interior, since only a licensed professional can detect things like creosote build-up or a defective damper. Failing to address such issues can, at the very least, reduce the efficiency of airflow within your home, and at worst, lead to a fire.
Most inspectors are called chimney cleaning professionals these days, but the term chimney sweep traditionally refers to the person who evaluates the flue, damper and roof, and then cleans them from the inside. A certified chimney sweep will also inspect your fireplace and the room in which it operates, checking for any structural inefficiencies or signs of leakage. When looking to hire a chimney cleaner, it’s best to seek one who is certified by the CSIA or NCSG.
A chimney flue is essentially a duct that runs from the fireplace to the top of the chimney, helping convey the gas and heat out of the home. It must be properly sealed in order to protect the home and withstand the exhaust that passes through.
The damper is the device that seals the chimney shut when it is not in use. It usually operates as a small flap inside the flue, helping retain warm air and insulate the home, even when there is no fire going.
