Your fireplace and chimney system are an important part of your home heating system. Make fireplaces & chimney examinations a regular part of your home maintenance schedule.

*An inspection is required upon the sale or transfer of a property, per CSIA(Chimney Safety Institute of America)
There are three levels of inspection; level 1, level 2, and level 3.
Level I Inspection - This inspection is recommended when your fireplace, chimney, and venting system are easily accessible and when you are planning to maintain its current use. In general, this level of inspection is performed in most homes. In a Level I inspection our CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep will verify that your fireplace & chimney structures are sound, free of obstructions, and combustible deposits, such as creosote.
Level II Inspection - The addition of a new home heating appliance or a change in the type of fuel you are burning requires a Level II inspection. This inspection level is also required upon the sale or transfer of a property or after an operating malfunction or external event that is likely to have caused damage to your fireplace & chimney. The scope of a Level II inspection includes that of the Level I inspection plus the inspection of accessible portions of your attics, crawl spaces and basements. It may also include a performance test such as a smoke test or a pressure test and possibly an interior fireplace & chimney video inspection if recommended by our CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep.
Level III Inspection - When a Level I or Level II inspection suggests a hidden hazard and the evaluation cannot be performed without access to concealed areas, a Level III inspection is recommended. This type of inspection confirms the proper construction and condition of concealed portions of your fireplace & chimney structure as well as its flue. Level III inspections are generally necessary when investigating an incident that has caused damage to the fireplace, chimney, building, or where a hazard is detected and suspected.
