Three Levels of Chimney Inspections

Chimney inspection in Newbury NHYour chimney is one of the most important systems in your home. Neglecting it may lead to damage and danger, putting your property and your family at risk. Just like you schedule routine service appointments for your cars, it’s also important to schedule chimney maintenance.

Safe and Efficient Chimneys

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the safest and most efficient chimney and fireplace systems are cleaned regularly and inspected annually. After a long winter of regular use of your fireplace, the flue is likely coated in soot and creosote. A system that is clean of soot, creosote, and other debris allows for better airflow and more efficiency. When the chimney is venting properly, there is less risk of flue fire which means your family is safe and you have less risk of property loss.

CSIA Inspections

When you schedule a chimney inspection with Black Moose Chimney & Stove you can choose from three levels of inspection as prescribed by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA).

Level One – This standard inspection requires no special tools and no additional access to the chimney system. The technician will visually inspect the readily accessible portions of the system, including the appliance and connections. This level of inspection is necessary every 12 months even if there are no problems with the fire unit or chimney.

levels three chimney inspection in Henniker NHLevel Two – If there have been changes made to the system, repairs, installations, or if there is a problem with the system, a level two inspection is necessary. It is also required when a property is sold or transferred. It includes all that in a level one in addition to any accessible portions by way of attic or basement. This inspection also includes a cleaning, a 66-point inspection, and a video scan of the flue interior. Your technician will provide a formal report and pictures of damage or hazards.

Level Three – When a hazard is detected and the technician needs to gain access, a level three inspection is scheduled. This appointment may require special tools to demolish portions of the system and gain access to the hazard. A repair usually follows this inspection, but it is only required when absolutely necessary.

I wanted to give 5 stars but they are very busy which meant I had a good wait for both the inspection/cleaning, then for a quote on repairs and then for the repairs. Their prices seemed a little high to me but I have nothing to compare with as they were highly recommended by someone I trust and other companies had plenty of negatives reviews which kept me from getting additional quotes. I am happy with the work and they promptly returned to fix a mistake that had been made. Chris the inspector, Jennifer in the office, and Alex and his repair crew were all pleasant and took the time to answer all of my questions. Alex and his crew even took their shoes off (it was winter) before entering my house without even being asked! So if you are not in a rush and want to ensure you chimney is as safe as possible then I think you'll be happy with Black Moose.

After a recent sweep of our chimney, it was discovered that our flue tiles were cracked. Black Moose techs were hard working, detail oriented and professional! Nice jobs guys! See you next year for my cleaning!

Excellent I highly recommend Black Moose Chimney and Stove; Kelly and Liam are awesome, they did a great job. Extremely professional, arrived early, went through everything with a fine tooth comb ensuring pellet stove was thoroughly cleaned. They also were respectful of my home, conscientious and cleaned up after themselves. Made sure stove worked prior to leaving and told me to call promptly if anything came up afterward. Will definitely use them again.

We've had Black Moose clean our chimney for a number of years.But recently, we had an emergency situation at our home involving our chimney & oil furnace flue, which was caked full of soot from a malfunctioning furnace. They came & cleaned out both flues in no time, even going up on the roof with snow on it! They cleaned up after their work in the interior rooms where the oil furnace and the woodstove are located. Great work. Reasonable prices. Very nice people. You can't go wrong with Black Moose.

Goods: The technicians know their business, very efficient in cleaning/inspection along with cleaning up after the 'dirty work'.Others: Communications could be more effective. Despite early coordination about scope of work (multiple flues within same chimney) the estimate provided did not reflect this and the final invoice was significantly more than the estimate provided.Quote for follow-on chimney relining was significantly more than that offered by other companies in the area (and far more than neighbors experienced for similar work accomplished by other companies)
