Our customers, friends, and neighbors in and around the Texas Panhandle depend on West Texas Chimney and Venting Solutions for chimney care, including diagnostics. When a problem arises with a chimney, it is sometimes quite noticeable. Other times it can go on for weeks or even months, but a professional can spot it right away.
Why Inspect Your Perfectly-Good Chimney
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) agree that routine chimney maintenance and annual inspections are necessary for the safest and most efficient chimneys. That means even chimneys that work well and have been changed in no way should be inspected every 12 months no matter what. Speak with the chimney experts so that we can help you determine the type of inspection your chimney needs. We do them all!
Level One – This inspection is required annually when nothing is changed and there are no problems with the system. It includes all the readily accessible portions of the chimney interior and exterior, as well as connections and appliance components. At the end of a level one inspection, you can rest assured that your chimney structure is sound and the flue is free of obstruction.
Level Two – This inspection is required when changes have been made to the system when a natural occurrence has affected the chimney, when a problem is detected, or when the property is being sold or transferred. A level two inspection includes all that in a level one, in addition to accessible portions by way of attics, basements, and crawl spaces.
Level Three – This is the most thorough inspection, required when a serious hazard is suspected in a lesser-level inspection. The technician may need to remove portions of the masonry, the wall, or the chimney crown in order to gain access.
