• Are you a home buyer planning to purchase a home that has a gas fireplace?
  • Are you selling your home?
  • Would you like the reassurance that the fireplace was inspected by an expert with special training?

A Level 2 Inspection by a Certified Fireplace Inspector is the best way to make sure cozy calm doesn’t turn into expensive aggravation. Replacing a gas fireplace system can cost $5,000 or more and be an unpleasant surprise for a homeowner who saw that fireplace as a great feature when they bought the house.

Our founder and senior technician Buck Marsters has been certified by Fireplace Investigation Research and Education Services (F.I.R.E.) to perform the Level 2 Inspection and can provide certification letters to homeowners, realtors, property managers, and home inspectors.

A completed Level 2 Inspection gives the seller an additional selling point and gives the buyer peace of mind. It’s also required by National Fire Protection Association code when property is sold or transferred.

The Inspection Will Check

This is a general description of a Level 2 Inspection (see NFPA -National Fire Protection Association 211, Chapter 15 for the legal definition).

Inspect the readily accessible areas of the fireplace system without the use of destructive methods, and also when it is safe to do so .

We will use equipment that may include the following: a camera system, a gas detector, and voltmeter.

This service also includes:
-The servicing of the gas fireplace
-Testing for carbon monoxide (CO) and combustible gas leaks
-Checking for proper operation of the appliance

Once the inspection is complete, you can elect to have us perform any needed repairs at a reasonable cost.
