Someone please help me! We just bought a house in the country. When we looked at the house, we did not notice a fireplace smell. However, we moved in and turned on the air conditioning and ***, it was bad! We had to turn off the air conditioning. A chimney sweep came and cleaned the fireplace for $195. Then, he told us we had to have an insert. We took his advice. He installed a unit for $2,400 plus $350 in accessories. It made the problem worse. He would told me he would refund the money if I checked with an air conditioning repair man, and he could not fix the problem. I had two heating and cooling men here. No one could solve the problem. The chimney sweep came and took out the unit, which I found out was not installed with a liner to the roof, which was a fire hazard. Also, the AC man came back and said the chimney was not properly cleaned. The chimney man will not refund my money as promised, and the AC man says he doesn't know how to fix my problem. I need someone to help. We live in a small town, and I can't find another chimney sweep. People from Joplin, Mo will come and clean my fireplace only if I buy a new insert. I have spent almost $3,0000. I need help!!!!! I don't know whether to by an new insert and take a chance it will work or not.
