Fire has long been a source of heat for American homes. Actually, even further back than that! Fire and chimneys were used in Europe before America was colonized. In addition, Native Americans vented their fires through a hole in the top of their teepees. Where fire has seemed to always be a source of heat, there has also been a risk of danger. When an industry developed around chimney systems and fire safety, another risk arose. The risk of scams, exploitation, and fraud. It didn’t take long to became a real threat for homeowners in America. It wasn’t until the 1980’s that an organization was founded for the people. Their mission? To protect and educate homeowners from both fire and exploitation.
A Chimney & Fireplace Standard that Stands
The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) is a non-profit organization, governed by volunteers from the chimney industry. CSIA members must adhere to a stringent code of ethics, which is in place to protect homeowners from scams. Members also participate in continued education and examination every three years. This in order to keep up with a changing and evolving industry. CSIA meets the highest of educational standards. Plus, it is regulated by the Indiana State Workforce Innovation Council, Office for Career and Technical Schools. What has set the Chimney Safety Institute of America apart from comparable certifications? Its mission focus. CSIA places high importance on educating homeowners about fire risk and safety. Not to mention, each CSIA member holds these values to be true.
