Two Generations of Quality Through Integrity

Winters can be pretty long and trying in Minnesota. Finding ways to enjoy the winter weather to the fullest is a lot more palatable when you have a warm and cozy environment to come home to. It doesn’t get much cozier than curling up before a roaring fire in the fireplace. Just remember that any chimney and fireplace services you may require in your Coon Rapids, MN home must be handled professionally. It doesn’t matter if you want to install a gas fireplace or if you just require chimney and fireplace cleaning services: you need to hire a professional technician. Just dial up the experts at 2nd Generation Chimneys, Inc. to do so.

2nd Generation Chimneys, Inc. offers chimney sweeping, gas fireplace installation, repair and inspections, and dryer vent cleaning services in the Coon Rapids, MN area.

In Need of a Professional Chimney Sweep?

Cleaning the house isn’t high up on anyone’s list of fun activities, but at least it’s manageable. Cleaning a fireplace and chimney effectively, though, requires the tools and skills that only professional chimney sweeps possess. When you require a quality chimney sweep in the area, remember that our staff has the years of training and experience necessary to get the job done right, from start to finish. You won’t have to worry about an inadequate cleaning, or about a mess being left behind, when you work with us.

Call Us if You Need a Chimney or Fireplace Inspection

There is simply no way in which you can truly assess the condition of your chimney or your fireplace on your own. Don’t wait for something to go seriously wrong with either structure before you are made aware of the issue. Schedule professional chimney and fireplace inspection services with technicians you can count on in the Coon Rapids, MN area. If you’re reading this, then you’ve already found them.

We Are Gas Fireplace Installation Experts

If you like the idea of a fireplace, but are turned off by the reality of obtaining wood, keeping it dry, and bringing it in to feed the fire, not to mention cleaning up the cooled ashes in the morning, then you may benefit from the installation of a gas fireplace. Natural gas is piped directly into a home, meaning that it is exceptionally convenient. There is nothing to clean up: just shut off the gas when you are done with your fire. Let our team install your gas fireplace for you. That way you’ll know the job is done right.

Do You Need a Gas Fireplace or Chimney Repair in Coon Rapids, MN?

Does the flame of your gas fireplace flicker a lot? Does it seem as though there is a nasty draft coming from your chimney, or that smoke is blowing back into your home? When you need gas fireplace and chimney repairs in Coon Rapids, MN, 2nd Generation Chimneys, Inc. is the company to call. We will thoroughly assess the situation, and then make sure that your gas fireplace and chimney are in exceptional working condition.

We Even Offer Dryer Vent Cleaning

Saving on electricity or gas by line–drying clothing and bedding is a great endeavor. It is not always that convenient, though, nor is it even possible at all times of the year. The dryer in your home is, then, a valuable asset. Just don’t let it put your safety or your home at risk. Schedule routine dryer vent cleaning with us, so you don’t have to worry about the heat of your dryer igniting lint and fibers from within.

Great Service, Troy is nice and has been here before. He does a thorough cleaning job. Price is good.




I have had Alpha for at least I think 4 years. I am very satisfied with the work they do. I have it set up so they notify me every year and I appreciate that.

Thorough, Professional




The technician (Troy) was very prompt. He was really nice about explaining everything. The cleaning took almost three hours for my small condo and he was always doing something. I'm not complaining about how much time it took rather happy he took the time to get every nook and cranny! He was also very considerate of my cats, making sure we had them in whatever room he was not currently working on while making sure they didn't scoot out the open door. (I really appreciated this.) He did offer the extra services which are less $$ if you get them done at the same time but... he didn't try to schmooze me which I appreciate as schmoozing or trying to "sell" me only irritates me. He offered the services after he was done cleaning rather than right up front (as a previous duct-cleaning service had tried to do before they even looked at the ducts). Before leaving, he also sincerely asked me to let him know if I thought there was anything he could have done differently or better. I couldn't think of anything. When I get this done again in a few years, I will be seeking this company out again. I also love that it's a family owned business. ~~ The price was significantly higher than what you find on groupons, etc. However, when really looking into getting this done, it sounds like those $49 services may not really get the job done. In the fine print of the last groupon I saw (for a different company), there were $100 upcharges for each of the "extras" (the whip thingy, the brush, etc) so I imagine the end cost would be comparable if you really want it done right. I found this company by looking for a NADCA member as recommended via the following link. https://www.angieslist.com/videos/video-avoid-air-duct-cleaning-scams.htm

great service




Troy showed up on time, answered all my questions. Work was performed in 3 hours. He also found a problem with my furnace filter that i had no idea was there. I would highly recommend Alpha Air.

Great work, discounts appreciated.




Troy is a great guy. Punctual, polite and always helpful. When he shows up, we always know the job will get done well. He is an asset to your company. Thanks, Troy. Sandy.


They were awesome! Very professional, knowledgeable and efficient. They even captured the runaway dog.




Would always give them a positive recommendation.


Duct Cleaning




Tony and his partner were terrific. I really appreciate the step by step explanations and viewings of the main ducts they showed me. I would recommend both Tony and his partner to everyone.


Totally professional




These guys were the best. They explained everything before hand. They were polite and vey professional. They also discovered a source for the dust in our home and they repaired it. The home had not been cleaned since it was built in 1972. We've owned it for 10 years. The ductwork was clogged. They also sprayed the ductwork for mold, pollen and other airborn pollutants. If you value the quality of your air, especially during Minnesota winters, call and make an appointment. You wont be sorry.


Awesome!




The two technicians from Alpha Air were courteous, respectful, professional and knowledgeable. They explained the process in detail, patiently addressing all of our questions and concerns. They worked around our pets without hesitation. There was no mess or fuss for us to deal with after the work was completed. Other than the look and feel of clean vents and ducts when the technicians left, we would not have even known they had been in our home. We are completely satisfied with the entire process, including the pleasant and professional scheduling with LIsa, the office manager.


On time, great service




Crew was prompt and professional. They were thorough and efficient. Great job.
