About The Fireplace Service Company

The Fireplace Service Company was founded in 1981 by Alabama-native Dennis Dobbs. What set The Fireplace Service Company apart from the start was Dobbs’ dedication to superior customer service, ethical business practices, continued education and maximum industry involvement.

In 1986, he became a TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority)-Certified Wood Heat Installer; in 1989 he received his CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) certification and joined the NCSG (National Chimney Sweep Guild). He also went on to join and become (the current) president of the Alabama Chimney Sweep Guild (now known as the Southern Association of Chimney Professionals or SACP), where he organized educational events for fellow sweeps and grew the group from involving members from 2 states to members from 9.

Over the years, Dobbs has:

  • Become Alabama LP (liquid propane) gas licensed (2003)
  • Served on the NCSG Board of Directions (2009-2013)
  • Served on the NCSG Technical Advisory Council Chair (2011-2013), answering technical calls from sweeps across the nation and writing educational articles for the monthly trade magazine
  • Taught local, regional, and national classes for chimney sweeps, chimney technicians, realtors, home inspectors and home builders
  • Created innovative techniques and product improvements that are now used within the industry, nationwide

Dobbs loves the industry and the community he is in, and is also a member of the Rainsville Chamber of Commerce and the Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce.
