What Is A Chimney Inspection & What Is Its Purpose?
The purpose of a chimney inspection is to provide you, the homeowner, with an accurate idea of your chimney’s condition, and alert you to any dangers, damage, or issues that need to be addressed for performance and safety.
The NFPA breaks down chimney inspections into three different levels:
- Level 1 Inspections — A level 1 inspection is recommended for chimneys which have been regularly up-kept, and which haven’t undergone any changes in use, fuel type, liner, or attached appliance.
- Level 2 Inspections — A level 2 inspection is recommended for chimneys that have undergone changes, like a change in fuel type, liner, or appliance. These are also required when the property is sold or transferred, and when a malfunction, chimney fire, or external event has occurred that may have damaged the chimney.
- Level 3 Inspections — A level 3 inspection is recommended only when serious hazards are suspected, and when the removal of certain components of the building or chimney is required to gain access to the areas in question.
