A WETT (Wood Energy Technology Transfer) inspection is a specialized type of inspection that focuses on assessing the safety and compliance of wood-burning appliances, such as fireplaces, stoves, and chimneys.

What is the purpose of a WETT Inspection?

The primary purpose of a WETT inspection is to ensure that these heating systems are properly installed, vented, and maintained according to the relevant codes and standards. This inspection is especially important because improperly functioning wood-burning appliances can pose fire hazards and lead to dangerous emissions, such as carbon monoxide. As a WETT certified inspector, using only the official WETT forms, I evaluate various components, including the appliance, chimney structure, clearance distances, and overall installation quality. The inspector provides a detailed report outlining any issues or potential risks, along with recommendations for necessary repairs or maintenance. WETT inspections are crucial for promoting the safe and efficient use of wood-burning heating systems in residential properties.
