Leaving Tips For Improvement

That being said, we realize there is always room for improvement. That’s why reviews that tell us how we can better serve you are important, too! We take all of our feedback very seriously and, if there’s an issue, then we need to know about it. Tell us everything, so that we know how to do it better next time around.

Make Your Review Effective

If you’re ready to leave a review (good or bad), it’s important to word it appropriately and present the information in a way that is beneficial to us and any other potential customers reading it. Are you are upset with a service we gave you? We understand wanting to leave an angry review right away to vent out any immediate frustration. However, that just isn’t beneficial to anyone reading it. Take some time to look over these tips before writing your next review!

First of all, give yourself some time. Wait a day or two, so that you can write your opinions with a clear head, making them as objective and fact-oriented as possible. Using offensive or sarcastic language may make your feel better in the moment, but we want our customer reviews to be more constructive than that! Always remember – harsh language helps no one.

Next, be realistic and be sure you include your entire experience in the review. It can be easy to over exaggerate, but doing so makes you appear less credible, and it’s likely that people won’t take you very seriously. It’s unlikely that one entire experience was only all bad. Be honest. If you didn’t like something, explain why, and be sure you leave any positive notes in there, too.

We also ask that you leave out specific names, because this again doesn’t help anyone out. Look at the situation from both sides. Try to present the information in a professional manner. Once you are finished, look over your review. Don’t forget and make sure everything is worded appropriately. Additionally, that it is grammatically correct and easy to understand. Your readers will thank you!

We can’t wait to hear your feedback soon!

Protect Your Firebox This Winter With A Heat Reflector!

If you own a fireplace, there’s no doubt you look forward to the many benefits they offer each year. They keep your home warmer on cool days and they add the perfect ambiance to any holiday gathering. Not to mention, they work wonders in bringing families closer together every single evening. That’s why it’s so important to ensure your system stays protected!

With the holidays just around the corner, we’re sure you’ll be putting your fireplace to lots of use. Let us install a heat reflector, so that you’re good to go all winter long! Your firebox will thank you.

Firebox This Winter With A Heat Reflector Image - San Diego CA - Weststar Chimney SweepsWhat Is A Firebox?

If you’re new to the fireplace game, you may be wondering what exactly a firebox is – and why it needs to be protected. The firebox is the main area where fires burn in your fireplace. It’s where you build your fire, and it’s where the most heat is produced. It’s clearly an essential part of your fireplace system. However, when it’s not in good condition, you’ll find yourself facing a lot of troublesome issues.

Because there’s so much heat in the firebox, it takes on a lot of wear and tear. It may seem like no issues are forming. On the contrary, throughout time, each fire causes a bit more deterioration to occur, and your firebox will end up crumbling (costing you big bucks in repair jobs).

That’s why we suggest investing in heat reflectors. Learn more about these amazing products below. Afterwards, give us a call, so that we can set you up right!

Pros Of Investing In A Heat Reflector

An obvious reason for investing in a heat reflector is their ability to protect your firebox from the intense heat your fire produces. But how exactly does it do this? Well, it provides a strong shield for the back of your firebox, so that less heat gets to the brickwork and mortar. This could wind up saving you a lot of time, money, and stress. Why? Damaged brickwork typically requires expensive and intricate tuckpointing repair services!

But that’s not all heat reflectors are good for. They also help heat your home more efficiently! Wood-burning fireplaces are known for losing lots of heat because the back wall of the firebox absorbs so much of it. Yet, systems with a heat reflector in place are able to radiate the heat back out into your living room, where it belongs. Your home will stay warmer and cozier, and you’ll have no problem staying toasty on colder days.
