The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps was established in 1993 by a group of chimney sweeps that wanted the industry to progress through training and education. Bil Wight was among the founder members, and is also a key member of The Chimney Corner.
In the UK there is no legal requirement for a chimney sweep to obtain any training or become a member of any organisation, a fact that greatly concerns the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps and its members.
Here at The Chimney Corner we feel it’s of paramount importance to be a part of the Guild and obtain as much training as possible. The more we learn, the better the service we give you!
We are associated with Ablewight Chimney Sweeps, which provides domestic chimney sweeping services in Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Essex. Both companies work together to give you fully integrated domestic and commercial chimney cleaning and diagnostic services.
Collectively we have over 50 years’ experience within the chimney industry and combine that experience and traditional values with today’s technology.
HETAS is the official body recognised by the Government to approve BIOMASS and solid fuel domestic heating appliances, fuels, and services, including the registration of competent installers and servicing businesses.
For the services we provide at The Chimney Corner it isn’t essential that we’re members of HETAS as we’re not installers and they don’t regulate the chimney sweeping industry. However, we strongly believe that by being a part of HETAS and undertaking relevant, but not required, training and qualifications we can provide a better service to our customers. As a result, all of our engineers are HETAS approved chimney sweeps.
Ecco Stove is an innovative range of stoves that is changing the way in which homes are heated. Pioneering air channels coupled with the silicon carbide material has produced a range of stoves that are more environmentally friendly, have a higher efficiency and are more cost effective than central heating and other traditional wood burning stoves.
While traditional wood burning stoves only heat the room they are situated in, the Ecco Stove heats the entire house greatly reducing the need to use traditional heating methods.
