An inspection for the wood burning technologies in your home is important for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the safety of you and your family.
A WETT certified inspection, which stands for Wood Energy Technology Transfer, includes a thorough inspection of all wood burning appliances such as stoves, combination furnace and fireplaces including flue pipe connection and chimney, by a WETT certified inspector.
WETT inspections are more than just something to offer you peace of mind, if wood-burning appliances are a part of your home’s features when purchase, it is very important that these appliances are inspected for your safety. In Canada, insurance companies require homes using wood burning appliances to be thoroughly inspected by a WETT certified professional before the home can be insured.
With wood burning appliances, the potential for harmful pollutants to be released into your home as well as combustible materials to ignite is increased, so it is important that these appliances are regularly inspected and properly maintained.
