What is a WETT Inspection?
WETT stands for Wood Energy Technical Transfer; it has nothing to do with water! WETT is for wood burning appliances only. With rising utility costs, people are looking for alternative ways to heat their homes and turning to wood burning units. With wood burning units, there is a risk. To ensure your wood burning unit is in proper working condition, a proper WETT inspection should be completed by a certified WETT inspector. These inspections are all about being up to current code. Wood stoves, brick fireplaces and factory built fireplaces all have different codes for installation and clearances.
