Level 1 Inspections
Level 1 inspections are recommended for homeowners who use their fireplace on a regular basis. During this inspection, our professionals will examine all the accessible portions of your chimney’s exterior, interior, and the appliance/chimney connection.
We’ll check for the basic stability of the chimney structure, flue, appliance installation, and connections. We’ll also make sure there are no obstructions or combustible deposits like bird nests, leaves, or buildup.
Level 2 Inspections
Level 2 inspections are more in-depth than Level 1 inspections. They are required when you make a change to your system such as:
- A change from gas to wood
- A change to the shape or material in the flue
- The replacement or addition of an appliance of a different type, rating, or efficiency
You will also need a level 2 inspection in the following instances:
- Before buying or selling a home
- If there is any damage to the chimney
- If there has been a home or building fire
- If there has been a fire in the chimney
- Seismic events
- Severe wind or weather
If we notice any hidden hazards and are unable to continue the evaluation without special tools to safely access the area, we’ll set up a Level 3 inspection with the necessary tools.
