Special: Pellet Stove & Gas Stove Pre-Season Checkup AND Chimney Sweep Services Discount


If you own a gas or pellet stove, August is the ideal month to schedule an annual checkup – before the weather cools down and you crank up your stove for another season.

I compare a stove checkup to my annual medical exam. My doctor tests my blood pressure, pulse, draws samples of various bodily fluids, and asks me lots of questions about my general health. If I need any “spare parts,” my doc refers me to a specialist who helps me navigate my health challenge.

In the same manner, a pre-season stove checkup ensures that your stove will function efficiently (dare I say healthily?) for another season. 

At Rich’s, we’re offering a terrific deal on pre-season pellet stove and gas stove checkups. Why go to the hassle of doing the dirty work yourself when our professionals will do it for you? For only $129 (plus tax), you’ll receive the following services:
