Wood Stove Inspection Specialists
You should always inspect your wood heating system before you move into those wood-burning fire nights. With a thorough and deep inspection, you can be sure to not have to deal with problems others might have to when winter comes. These inspections will be great to identify any problems that you may have from the last time you used it.
A proper inspection is important to ensure that you and your family remain safe while enjoying your wood stove. This is also a way to efficiently heat your home through the cold weather months.

Does your wood stove smell?
If any of these apply to you and your wood stove then it may time for a wood stove inspection. We recommend that you have this done at least once a year.
Wood Stove and House Fires Factoid Via FEMA
“Previously, especially during the late 1970s and early 1980s, heating was, by far, the leading reported cause of residential building fires… this surge in heating fires was the result of the sudden increased use of alternative heating, particularly wood heating stoves and space heaters. Since then, the overall number of heating fires has substantially decreased. Despite this decline, from 2010 to 2012, heating remained the second reported leading cause and accounted for 12 percent of all residential building fires responded to by fire departments across the nation.”
