Is Your Chimney To Code?
Fire investigators estimate that 40% of house fires that start from the chimney, start in the smoke chamber.
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 211 Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents, and Fuel Burning Appliances 2010 Edition. 188.8.131.52 The inner surfaces of the smoke chamber shall be parge coated smooth, with an insulating refractory mortar.
Per section 184.108.40.206 code states that masonry chimneys shall be lined.

Did You Know?
- CHIMNEY SWIFTS are the only bird which can fly straight up and down, and they find a perfect nesting spot on the inside of your chimney. They are also on the endangered species list and cannot be removed. A chimney cap can be installed to prevent the return of chimney swifts. For more information, see The Audubon Society page.
- PROPER FUEL is important for the quality of your fire as well as the longevity of your fireplace. Consult a professional wood provider and/or FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) for resources on fireplace safety.
- A WOOD STOVE TAX CREDIT is currently available for those installing a new wood burning fireplace under the biomass tax credit.
