What is WETT?
- WETT is an Acronym for: Wood Energy Technology Transfer
- WETT training offers the same approach to all Wood Burning Technicians and Installers, Salespeople, Insurance companies, Chimney sweeps and Inspectors as opposed to everyone using their own concept of the rules and common sense ideas that often are wrong.
Check our Video about a Level One WETT Inspection on a Wood Stove.
We also do WETT certification of Wood Burning Fireplaces and Pellet Stoves.
- covers the inspection of “readily accessible” components of a wood burning appliance, or a site-built fireplace, and the venting system for:
- (a) proper use of required components
- (b) clearance to combustibles
- (c) readily visible system obstructions or deposits
- This allows the WETT Certified inspector to verify code compliance of the wood burning system at a homeowner’s request, or with a homeowner’s permission, when requested by a third party (i.e. insurance company, home buyer, local building dept etc)
- WETT Inspections are necessary because one in 7 house fires are caused by a wood burning appliance that was installed improperly.
