Environmental Chimney Service Is Here For Rutherfordton During All Four Seasons

The Isothermal Belt and Blue Ridge Mountains provide residents of Rutherfordton a beautiful, scenic, and sometimes chilly place to live. The entire team of chimney professionals at Environmental Chimney Service is dedicated to keeping residents of Rutherfordton safe from fires and health hazards that originate in chimneys and household venting systems. We are proud to provide you with these services:

  • Damper Replacement and Repair
  • Wood Stove Sales and Installation
  • Class A/Metal Chimney Installation (classified for wood stove or gas burning)
  • Dryer Vent Cleaning

Each of the four seasons subjects your chimney to different types of wear and tear. Chimney cracks, leaks, and/or obstructed or damaged flues can not only increase your utility bills unnecessarily, but they can also cause toxic gases to seep back into your home and cause health hazards. The buildup of creosote and other combustible materials can cause fire hazards. Clear and clean dryer vents are also important for the same reasons.

That’s why it is so important for you to call Environmental Chimney Service and have us inspect and perform professional maintenance to keep your chimney, fireplace, and venting clear. Our technicians are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America and we keep updated on the latest tools and techniques to provide the best results.

Rutherfordton – A Very Special Place

The town was established in 1787. While most people think of the Western United States as the site of the Gold Rush, the Carolina Gold Rush began in 1799 when a 12-year old child found a 17-pound “gold stone” near Charlotte. The first $1 gold coin in the country was produced in in Rutherfordton in 1831 at a mint owned by Christopher Betchler, Sr. over 17 years before the United States started minting them.

Downtown Rutherfordton is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. St. John’s Church, the Carrier Houses, the Rutherford County Court House, St. Luke’s Chapel at Rutherford Hospital, and the original Rutherfordton-Spindale Central High School building are also listed on the NRHP and provide residents and visitors a glimpse into the town’s history.

St. Francis Episcopal Church is adorned with Tiffany stained glass windows and attracts worshipers, visitors, and art connoisseurs.

Walking tours are a popular way to learn about Rutherfordton’s past and study the diverse architecture used throughout the past 200 years.

Outdoor lovers can combine history and nature as they retrace the steps of the Overmountain Men of the Revolutionary War as they trekked along the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail. There is also a trail suitable for vehicles in addition to the walking trail.

Today, downtown Rutherfordton has a variety of shops, restaurants, and entertainment options that link the past with the present. The Mayfest Street Festival and the Hilltop Fall Festival bring residents and visitors together each year to celebrate Rutherfordton’s community spirit. The Farmer’s Market is held on Saturdays from May through September. Trick or Treat on Main Street is a popular Halloween community event and the parade and soapbox derby make Independence Day special in Rutherfordton.

KidSenses InterACTIVE Museum is a unique hands-on experience designed for children. However, adults will also appreciate it and maybe even learn a thing or two about how things work. The goal of the museum is to enable children to get excited to learn about the world around them through exhibits and interactive stations geared toward math, science, literature, technology, and history.
