When it comes to providing customers with high-quality chimney care, SirVent Chimney has worked to do that and more throughout our years serving this area. One way we better serve our customer base is by obtaining memberships and certifications from the highly esteemed chimney and fireplace organizations throughout the nation. One of these is the National Fireplace Institute (NFI).
The NFI is a non-profit organization that strives to educate sweeps and homeowners all throughout the country. When it comes to safety codes, clearances, regulations, and more, you can count on a NFI-certified professional to know it all! On top of this, certified sweeps are tested on various fuel types, installation techniques, inspection criteria, and everything else necessary to thoroughly examine your chimney system.
What It Takes to Become Certified
Becoming NFI certified is no easy process. There are a total of three specialties that you can take exams for and each holds its own rigorous testing process. If you become certified in all three, you gain the title of Master Hearth Professional – a big honor in the industry. A sweep must do an extensive review before they have all of the knowledge necessary to pass these examinations. There’s no doubt it takes dedication, hard work, and commitment!
But the process doesn’t end there… The chimney and fireplace industry is always introducing new techniques, regulations, and various forms of technology. Staying up-to-date is important and will help businesses provide the best customer care they can. That’s why the NFI requires their sweeps to recertify every three years. When you work with an NFI-certified chimney company, you know you’ll get expert care.
Why It’s Important
We feel that holding this certification is important. Why? Because our customers matter to us, and we know they expect the best! We have built a solid reputation, so we know that homeowners throughout the area can feel confident when they hire us for their chimney and fireplace needs. And we don’t intend to disappoint! That’s why we went through this examination process, and that’s why we continue to do it every three years.
On top of this, NFI-certified professionals know how to address your system while being environmentally conscious. They will be aware of any potential coding violations and they’ll ensure the job gets done efficiently and in a timely manner.
