Emergency Chimney Service

Always Affordable Chimney is available for 24/7 emergency service in Long Island and the rest of the New York metro area.


In June 2015, we received an emergency call from a Brooklyn three-family dwelling. Smoke also known as "puff back", was pouring into the building, caused by multiple blockages in their chimney system - these blockages, which accumulated after years of neglect within the chimney could have damaged a large majority of the house.

The Always Affordable crew could have accessed the chimney through standard “tile knocking” on the inside to clear out the debris in the terracotta chimney, but due to the poor condition of the chimney, entering inside the building would result in more smoke and soot releasing into the living spaces, putting the home and families at risk.

Always Affordable found a safer method of tearing a hole from the outside and into the chimney. As our employees are also experts in masonry, the chimney and wall were patched up following the insertion of a new, custom made 9” oval stainless steel liner.

Puff back

So what is puff back? Residue from soot created by an oil burner, chimney or furnace is called “puff back.” Aside from containing poisonous carbon monoxide, puff back will stain surfaces in your home or business. If you find this material in your house, you should call a chimney service as soon as possible and there is no one more reliable than Long Island's own, Always Affordable Chimney - providing emergency and general chimney work throughout Long Island, Brooklyn & Manhattan.
