Let’s Talk Chimney Inspections

There are 3 levels of inspections, each appropriate for different situations. Here’s a little about each and when they’re recommended:

Even if you don’t plan to use your chimney this season, the NFPA and the CSIA recommend that you have a level 1 inspection performed each and every year. Level 1 inspections are ideal for chimney systems that haven’t undergone any changes or shown any signs of damage or defect. These inspections should really be conducted at the same time as a chimney cleaning. During a level 1 inspection, we’ll check all easily accessible parts of your appliance and chimney, looking for creosote buildup, chimney blockages, or any other safety, functionality, or efficiency concerns. The areas we inspect include smoke chamber, firebox, damper, stovepipe, chimney cap, chimney crown, chimney exterior, masonry, and mortar joints.

Have you changed or do you plan to change your appliance type, fuel type, or flue? Have you noticed any issues with your chimney system? Did you recently purchase your home? Have you experienced a chimney fire? All of these scenarios call for a level 2 inspection. During a level 2 inspection, we use a video camera to inspect the accessible areas of the chimney system and attached wood stove, appliance, or furnace. We’ll look at both the interior and exterior parts of the system from top to bottom, including all of the components inspected during a level 1 inspection.

If a level 2 inspection is unsuccessful at identifying issues or reveals extensive damage that can’t be addressed without further inspection, a level 3 inspection will need to be performed. Level 3 inspections oftentimes involve the removal of parts of the system like brick, flue pipe, crown, masonry, walls, etc. These inspections are relatively rare and are only performed when there is no other way to address the issue or threat.
