Types of Chimney Inspections
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) provides guidance for 3 levels of fireplace and chimney inspections:
Our technician will inspect readily accessible parts of the inner and outer chimney during annual maintenance sweeping. The sweeping will clear the flue of obstructions and deposits like hazardous combustible creosote. If appliances have been swapped out, or an event like an earthquake, tornado, fire, or transfer of ownership has occurred, a Level One inspection will not suffice, and a Level Two inspection is in order.
These inspections dig deeper and are the most frequently performed. The technician will execute everything included in a Level One inspection, as well as inspect unseen areas of the flue system and smoke chamber. Aside from severe weather events, if you’ve experienced an equipment malfunction, a fire in the chimney, or the installation of a new heating appliance, you need a Level Two inspection. People thinking of buying a home should also request a Level Two inspection if one was not already provided by the seller.
These inspections are deemed necessary when a problem is discovered during Level One or Two inspections, but cannot be investigated without the removal of parts of the chimney and building. These are the least commonly performed chimney inspections.
