Visual inspection of the accessible exterior chimney.
Visual inspection of the insert installation.
A properly installed insert will have a chimney liner connected from the insert exhaust into the chimney flue. A liner extending only partially up the chimney should have a clean-out door available. The ideal installation will have the chimney liner extending to the top of the chimney.
Provided the above condition is met the chimney flue will be swept. If the insert is not properly installed we cannot recommend using it. We will recommend what is required to put the unit back in service.
A ChimScan video inspection of the interior flue will be performed.
All findings are recorded using a digital camera and the video inspection is recorded to the inspectors laptop computer. If any problems are noted a detailed report will be compiled including color photos. Suggestions will be made on how to remedy the problems noted.
