As a company, we are taking the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously. Your health and safety have always been our #1 priority. Because of this, we want to share with you the precautions we are taking as a company to stop the spread and keep you and your family, as well as our technicians and their families, safe.
All of our technicians will be equipped with masks and rubber gloves.
We will be asking homeowners how they feel before each visit, to see if they are feeling healthy or ill.
We will do as much outside work as possible and practice social distancing with customers if we have to go inside.
As things change, we will reevaluate these policies and change them as necessary. If there is anything else we can do in addition to these precautions to make you and your family feel more comfortable, please do not hesitate to let us know!
When it comes to taking care of your fireplace and chimney, many homeowners feel like they have to make a choice: go with a company that can sell you a fireplace, or go with a company that can service and repair your chimney. At Jack Pixley Sweeps, we can do both!
Whether you want to purchase and install a new insert or need the masonry of your existing chimney repaired, Jack Pixley Sweeps is a one stop shop for all of your fireplace and chimney needs. Avoid shopping around or working with multiple companies; trust our expert staff to get the job done right the first time!
Benefits of a new fireplace insert
If your home has an old fashioned masonry fireplace, you may want to consider upgrading to a more efficient fireplace insert. In addition to burning fuel more efficiently and producing less smoke and soot, fireplace inserts can also help you save on your energy bills. According to Leslie Wheeler of the Hearth, Patio, and Barbecue Association, converting an existing masonry fireplace to an energy efficient insert can save as much as 40%.
While an open hearth fireplace can only be used for burning wood, inserts that burn several different fuel sources are available. Whether you want the look of real wood, the efficiency of pellets, or the ease of gas, there is an insert for you! Likewise, inserts come in styles ranging from the traditional to the contemporary, allowing you to find a fireplace unit that blends in with your home’s décor.
We can fix your masonry, too!
Whether you have a new insert on the mind or are happy with your existing fireplace, masonry maintenance is an important part of making sure your chimney is safe to use. By having your chimney regularly swept, inspected, and repaired, you can enjoy your fireplace without worry.
Likewise, although installing an insert can be a way to avoid repairing a damaged firebox, an insert still needs a functional chimney to operate safely and with maximum efficiency. Because of this, it is important to have masonry repairs made as soon as possible – no matter what kind of fireplace you have.

At Jack Pixley Sweeps, we offer our customers a wide variety of services for the fireplaces and chimneys. While we do offer chimney sweepings and inspections, we can do so much more. We are one of the few companies in the areas that can provide closed circuit camera inspections which can help uncover hidden chimney dangers that cannot otherwise be seen. For homeowners experiencing ongoing issues such as drafts, leaks, or animal entry, we can diagnose the source of the problem and repair it to keep it from happening again.
We also proudly offer masonry services to our customers. Unlike general contractors or handymen, our masons are specifically trained to work with fireplaces and chimneys, leaving you with a product that will last for years to come.

In addition to our fireplace and chimney services, we also offer dryer vent cleaning. If your dryer is not working the way it used to, consider having the dryer vents cleaned before spending hundreds of dollars on a new appliance. Oftentimes, your old dryer’s performance can return to normal just by having the vents cleaned!
