A level 1 fireplace inspection is included with every one of our inspections and is an important step in ensuring the safety and functionality of your fireplace. Here are some reasons why it’s so important :

  1. Safety: A level 1 fireplace inspection is the most basic level of inspection, and it is designed to identify any potential safety hazards. A trained inspector will check for any damage to the chimney or flue, as well as any buildup of creosote, which can be a fire hazard.
  2. Efficiency: A level 1 inspection can also help to identify any issues that may be reducing the efficiency of your fireplace. For example, if the damper is not functioning properly, it can prevent smoke from being properly vented out of the chimney, which can reduce the heat output of the fireplace.
  3. Compliance: If you’re planning to sell your home or if you have a rental property, a level 1 inspection may be required to ensure compliance with local building regulations.
  4. Peace of mind: By getting a level 1 inspection, you can have peace of mind knowing that your fireplace is functioning properly and is safe to use. If it’s not, we will advise you to take the inspection to level 2.

In summary, a level 1 fireplace inspection is a simple and affordable way to ensure the safety, efficiency, and compliance of your fireplace. It can potentially save you money and headaches in the long run.
