The NFPA statistics indicate more than 48,000 house fires from heating equipment issues occurred between 2014 and 2018. Heating equipment failures accounted for 1 in 7 house fires.
Chimney inspections play an important role in preventing chimney fires and Carbon Monoxide issues by making sure the interior portion of you chimney is intact and functioning. Chimneys today have to meet NFPA standard 211. This standard details how chimneys are to be constructed if they were built today. They also detail the different levels of Chimney inspections. A typical Home inspection only includes the equivalent of a Level 1 chimney inspection. A level 1 inspection does not include an internal camera evaluation.
Norway Hil Home Inspections recognized the important information that buyers and homeowners needed to keep their families safe. Our internal camera inspection mirrors that of a Level 2 inspection, while we also realize that not all chimneys were built yesterday. Our internal inspections will determine the condition of the internal components of the chimney so the buyer or homeowner can be sure the internal flue lining is intact and safe.
