Our Services

Fireplace Installation

Did you know that even if your home doesn’t have a chimney or hearth that you can still enjoy the cozy glow of a fireplace? It’s true! Gas fireplaces do not require a chimney, as one can be installed with nothing more than a simple wall vent.

James A. Wheat & Sons makes fireplace installation a fairly simple process. We offer a large selection of models to meet your needs, design tastes and budget. Once installed, we’ll teach you how to use and maintain it properly so you can enjoy it for years to come.

Chimney Cleaning/Sweeping

Having your chimney cleaned or swept is recommended annually to protect your safety and health. Creosote (a byproduct of wood combustion) buildup inside your chimney can lead to corrosion and blockages that can further deteriorate the chimney, release harmful fumes into your home, or potentially cause fires. The team at Wheat & Sons will ensure your chimney’s safety by removing all hazardous soot and creosote buildup, cleaning out the smoke chamber, and removing debris from the firebox.

Chimney Evaluations/Inspections

Alongside regular cleaning, having your chimney inspected is another important yearly task. Frequent evaluations can prevent chimney fires, excessive smoke, and even carbon monoxide poisoning. Since chimneys become more difficult to clean as time goes on, it’s critical to keep an eye on them. Leave that to Wheat & Sons. Our fully-trained technicians know the precautionary steps to take and potential problems to look for to keep you—and your home—living a safer and healthier life.

To schedule your chimney inspection, give us a call at 240-399-5051 or contact us online!

Chimney Repairs

Should an inspection reveal an issue or you notice your chimney is showing signs of distress, don’t wait to act. By letting your chimney wear down for too long, you are at a higher risk of an array of issues and costly bills that could have been avoided. The firebox is exposed to extreme heat that eventually wears it down immensely; replacing it not only further ensures your chimney’s safety but also leaves you with a more aesthetically pleasing result. Repairing the smoke chambers can further prevent an overabundance of smoke and buildup. Different chimneys require different repairs, so it’s crucial to get familiar with what yours needs.

The Wheat & Sons team can help identify the specific repair needed and carry it out in a timely manner. We’ll also educate you on the situation so you know what to look for in the future.

Gas Fireplace & Log Services

Ready to update the look of your fireplace logs? Look no further than James A. Wheat & Sons. We can fit your modern gas fireplace with gas log sets that properly emulate a more traditional fireplace, preserving that classic look. The two prominent log styles available are vent-free and vented gas logs. Vent-free logs radiate heat spectacularly and do not require outside venting. Ventless logs are the most popular as they more accurately resemble burning wood, but they must be installed in a fully functioning wood-burning fireplace.

Furnace Cleaning

Maintaining your furnace should be a routine endeavor to keep it working at its best and produce clean air. If it’s been a while since your last furnace maintenance, or it’s just time for your annual check-up, contact James A. Wheat & Sons online or give us a call at 240-399-5051. During our maintenance checks, we inspect all parts including your air filters and thermostat. Minor problems are fixed right away and if we notice any larger problems, we’ll recommend you have your furnace repaired or replaced in order to ensure your home is kept as comfortable as possible.
