When to Schedule Chimney Inspections

Chimney inspections should be conducted during property sales or transfers, when changing the fuel type, after a chimney fire, or as indicated by a Level I inspection. Just like other property systems, chimneys require attention to ensure a safe and enjoyable fireplace experience.

Fireplace Codes and UL Listings

Understanding fireplace codes is essential. Manufacturers have specific requirements for safe distances between combustibles and their products. At Harth Enterprise, we prioritize UL Listed appliances, which undergo rigorous private testing. Our certified technicians adhere to clearances indicated on the UL Listing plate for enhanced safety.

Levels of Chimney Inspections

The NFPA 211 code book outlines three levels of chimney inspections: Level I, Level II, and Level III. For most real estate transactions, a Level II inspection is recommended. It includes a thorough assessment of the chimney's condition, including video inspections and roof assessments. Level I inspections are advised annually for regular maintenance.

Hidden Defects

It's important to note that some defects may remain hidden even after inspections. While inspections offer valuable insights, they can't guarantee the absence of hazards. Caution and common sense are crucial when using solid-fuel burning appliances in modern properties.
