      How Community-Focused Chimney Scientists Establish Themselves as Thought Leaders in Greater Philadelphia Area?

      How Community-Focused Chimney Scientists Establish Themselves as Thought Leaders in Greater Philadelphia Area?

      Community-focused and forward-thinking

      Among their many accomplishments and efforts in the scientific community and goodwill, philanthropist initiatives include but are not limited to creating and funding Afrilab Medical Diagnostic facilities, partnering with Valley Forge Watershed Association (VFWA), and lending their expertise to the Firewood Project.

      Working closely with chimney industry leaders, Ochal and Co. are taking the reins in helping improve wood burning and moisture testing. The primary mission is to help reduce particulate emissions, which would make repairs and cleanings more cost-efficient for homeowners, but most importantly, would benefit human and animal health, as well as Earth’s overall health.

      Our company is customer-oriented, and we are also passionate about helping reduce emissions and help clients eventually become more climate-friendly,” stated Ochal.

      As part of the services given to Afrilab Medical Diagnostics, the Chimney Scientists partnered with 47 Pennsylvania-based hospitals and 23 pharmacists to help modernize the West African healthcare system via x-rays, HIV tests, ultrasounds, and other critical care offerings.

      With the VFWA project, the Chimney Scientists work directly with them to help make waterways and watershed ecosystems safer while recruiting professors to lead research projects and fund the equipment needed for testing.

      With honor at the forefront of its core values, the team at the Chimney Scientists believe in honesty, integrity, respect, operating at the highest level, never saying ‘never’, and always showing up on time and the spot.

      The first step in properly maintaining your fireplace is knowing what kind of fireplace you have. If you have an electric fireplace, it is crucial to read the user manual and follow it step-by-step. For example, using the correct plugs and outlets can prevent fires in electric fireplaces. Finding out which to use is found in the user manual.

      In comparison to wood fireplaces, electric fireplaces require far less maintenance. However, wood burning fireplaces are Ochal’s favorite and are the type of fireplace he has most thoroughly analyzed with his scientific prowess.

      Ochal recommends avoiding the use of wood from recently cut trees. He instead suggests using wood treated for starting fires. These are different from synthetic logs, which aren’t natural wood and, if used, should be ventilated with a fireplace flue to prevent carbon monoxide from spreading.
