Interesting - which C/Kanton do not require a yearly sweep?
Gas burners below a certain threshold (70 KW) are to be cleaned once every two years, other forms of heating either once a year or twice a year, depending on type of fuel and size of installation. (If twice a year, then at least one of those times is supposed to be during the heating season, i.e. you can't just check once in June and again in August.)

These rules are cantonally set, but seem to be pretty standard (I checked six different cantons, all featured identical wording) and I have an idea they were developed by some transcantonal body - more than likely the VKF (= Vereinigung Kantonaler Feuerversicherungen).

Of course things may be different in the Wild West Ticino; my Italian wasn't up to investigating that.
