A fireplace is one of the most desirable assets a home can have and is often on a homebuyer’s wish list, so don’t neglect the importance of a WETT inspection before listing your home.
A WETT inspection is an inspection of a wood burning system performed by a WETT (Wood Energy Technology Transfer) certified technician to determine condition and compliance with existing codes.
Why get a WETT inspection?
- The purchaser’s insurance company may require it.
- The purchaser will want peace of mind knowing if the wood burning system in his new home is up to code.A favourable WETT inspection report reflects well on the condition of your home and will therefore command a higher price than a home with a wood burning system in need of repair.
So… have the WETT inspection done now, before it becomes a ” Condition of Sale”.
