Did you know the latest addition of NFPA 211 has been revised with many changes pertaining to inspections of existing chimneys, fireplaces, vents and solid fuel burning appliances. These changes include circumstances requiring inspections, by a qualified agency at the time of sale or transfer of property.

The average home inspector does not meet NFPA 211’s criteria for a qualified agency.

Ensure you are getting the best advice before purchasing a home.

Guardian Service’s Inspectors are qualified masons WETT Certified ‘IN ALL ASPECTS’ plus a member of the Fire Prevention Officier’s Association.

Any short comings found in our inspection can be followed up with written estimated for code compliant solutions. If no short comings are found our thorough inspection will provide you with paper work for your insurer and peace of mind for all.

Good Reasons to Heat with Wood

It’s a Renewable Energy Resource

 

Renewable means you don’t run out

Renewable means you don’t deplete the earth’s resources. Wood is energy from the sun, stored by the trees as it grows. When you burn wood you are releasing this stored energy. In the dark of winter, it’s like having a bit of summer sun on your hearth..

No Global Warming

When fuels burn they release carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gas responsible for global warming.

Burning fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas is like pumping carbon dioxide from the center of the earth into the atmosphere — a one way trip.

Trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow. When wood burns, the carbon dioxide is released, only to be absorbed again by young trees. Because trees recycle carbon dioxide, wood burning just warms you, not the globe.
