Is your wood-burning appliance (solid fuel) compliant and safe?

When buying or selling your home, you shouldn't take for granted that your wood-burning appliance (solid fuel) or chimney complies with current standards.

As part of your appliance compliance inspection, the following items will be inspected:

  • Type of appliance
  • Condition
  • Connecting pipe
  • Chimney
  • Clearance requirements

These components must be in good condition and operational for your appliance to pass this part of the inspection. A broken damper or cracked chimney are reasons for failure.

Many fires are caused by people failing to clean their wood-burning appliances and chimneys. Regular inspection and cleaning is the most important way of reducing the risk of fire, optimizing the appliance's operation, extending its service life and respecting the environment.
