Hello! I have been doing a bit of lurking since buying a house in February with a Northstar and New Englander pellet stove installed in it. I recently stumbled across some info on sweeping a fireplace from the bottom up. Is this something that can be done with the Northstar? My roof is really steep, maybe 12/12, and I have to sit the ladder on the sloped deck roof just to reach the chimney (I will try to add some pictures) and it would be really convenient if I could sweep it myself a few times a season without climbing to the top. Also, would the same method work for the pellet stove? Thanks! Really enjoying the forum so far.
