Why are WETT Inspections Needed?

Why are WETT Inspections Needed?

To understand why WETT Inspections are needed, we need to know what they are and what they accomplish. WETT stands for Wood Energy Technical Transfer. In essence, WETT deals with wood-burning appliances only. WETT inspections will look at appliances such as wood stoves, fireplaces, and pellet stoves.

The primary purpose of WETT inspections is to assess the maintenance and installation of wood-burning appliances and to prevent hazards potentially caused by poor maintenance and incorrect installation. When you purchase a new home, you want to ensure everything is safe and up to code, and a WETT inspection will provide that.

With wood appliances being a common cause for house fires, insurance companies now require an inspection by a Certified WETT inspector. Although insurance companies have previously accepted WETT inspections dated 10 years back, regulations are increasing, and most companies now require an inspection dated within the past year

WETT inspections can also help identify non-safety-related issues, such as poor emissions and energy efficiency. Also, a proper assessment can help extend the appliance’s lifespan as they will point out if anything needs fixing.

WETT inspections are crucial for ensuring the safety of wood-burning appliances, preventing fires, reducing emissions, meeting legal requirements, and maintaining the value and integrity of your property.
