The Three Levels of Inspections
Distinguished chimney and fireplace safety organizations such as the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) urge homeowners to schedule annual chimney inspections. These provide a myriad of benefits and should only be performed by those with professional certifications. Luckily, our technicians are able to perform any necessary inspections.
There are three levels of inspection, each varying dependent on circumstances and the condition of your chimney. Read below to find out more about each inspection:
- Level 1: The level one inspection is the most basic and routine. It provides a thorough evaluation of your chimney from top to bottom, and is performed during annual sweepings. This inspection usually suffices if your chimney is properly maintained and regularly inspected. It is also sufficient if your chimney has shown no signs of deterioration, decay, or any noticeable problems.
- Level 2: Level two inspections provide a more in-depth look at the entirety of your chimney system. Our professional technicians use video scanning technology to examine parts of the system that are unseen by the naked eye. These inspections are more thorough than level one inspections, and may require use of special tools. Level two inspections are necessary during the transfer of a property (i.e. buying or selling a home), anytime changes are made to the system (i.e. installing a new appliance, flue liner, or changing fuel type), and when you notice damage or changes in your system’s efficiency and functionality.
- Level 3: Level three inspections are the most invasive and thorough. They are necessary when the source of the problem was unable to be discovered and addressed during a prior inspection. They are rather rare, and often involve demolition and severe construction work.
