What is a WETT Inspection?
A WETT inspection is a visual inspection of a wood-burning appliance to ensure the appliance is safe and complies to the current building code requirements and (CSA-365). WETT inspections are commonly requested by home owners when requested by their insurance companies.
The Truth about WETT Certification!
WETT is a training organization that teaches individuals how to check for code compliance and safety with wood burning appliances. They often are required when you buy or have a wood burning appliance like a fireplace or wood burning stove installed. They also can help with maintenance and the prevention of potential problems. When someone is WETT certified, it means that they are certified ( by WETTinc.ca ) to perform safety checks and maintenance on a wood burning appliance. The term doesn’t apply to your wood burning stove or fireplace, but rather, to the inspector.
WETT inspections typically include examinations of:
- The chimney
- The liner and flue
- The smoke chamber
- The damper
- The firebox
- The hearth or floor around the wood burning appliance
- Whether combustible surfaces are far enough away from the appliance and its parts
In most cases, a basic visual inspection will be enough to tell the inspector if the installation of your wood burning appliance is safe. In other cases, you may need a more intensive type of inspection to make sure that even the parts you can’t see are working properly. This is known as a Site Basic Inspection.
