WETT INSPECTION | Keeping Safe With Wood Heat
WETT Inspection Report is important to have on file in your household documents. The allure of fire is a primordial attraction from the begging of time. Part of our culture in literature exemplifies the glowing home fires, warming up around the hearth to the deep satisfying heat from burning wood.
Smoke may smell good, but it’s not good for you. Wood smoke can affect everyone, but children under 18, older adults, people with diabetes, heart disease, asthma or other lung diseases are the most vulnerable.
Smoke is made up of a complex mixture of gases and fine particles produced when wood and other organic matter burn. A major health threat from smoke comes from fine particles (also called particle pollution, particulate matter, or PM). These microscopic particles can get into your eyes and respiratory system, where they can cause health problems such as burning eyes, runny nose, and illnesses such as bronchitis.
Homes are more air tight with increased insulation, better windows and tighter draft seals around doors save on heating bills and increase risks from improperly installed fireplaces, wood burning stoves or deteriorating flues and chimneys.
Have your installation inspected as part of your regular house hold maintenance. If your Insurance Company has not requested a WETT Inspection have one on file for your next policy renewal.
Enjoy the fires of time in safety.
