Oil to Gas Conversion Specialists

As of January 1, 2008 National Grid will not give final inspection to anyone converting from oil to gas heat with out a stainless steel lining system installed by an licensed and reputable chimney company. It is the homeowner's responsibility for this service to be completed, not National Grid's!

The chimney company will first check the lining of the chimney to determine if the existing flue is a stainless steel liner which will tolerate the emissions from a new gas burner without causing dangerous or unhealthy deterioration. A stainless steel liner must be installed for these conversions!

N. Y. Metro Chimney is highly recommenced by many major heating, plumbing, and home improvement specialists.

Protect your investment. Have N. Y. Metro Chimney perform the NECESSARY PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE before a problem occurs.

We welcome all future customers switching from oil to gas with $100.00 off any stainless steel lining system. Click the coupon below to print.

Your chimney, like most chimneys, probably appears to be in fine condition on the outside. But let's take a close look at what really counts in chimney operation...the inside.

When we look inside we can find imperfect conditions. Pieces are missing from the original clay liner and there are cracks. Mortar and bricks are loose and falling, there is excessive buildup of combustible creosote on the flue walls.

Chimney defects result in home fires. It doesn't take much, a spark flitting through a crack in the chimney wall into the attic, a chimney ember igniting a creosote fire which then climbs the full height of the chimney or simply excessive heat reflected through the wall.
