The Importance of Choosing an NFI Certified Installer


You own a home or business and it has a fireplace or fire-burning appliance. While a fireplace adds ambiance and value to your home, it can also raise the risk of fire and damage if not installed and maintained correctly.

The Importance of Choosing an NFI Certified Installer - Westhampton Beach NY - Beach Stove and Fireplace

Choosing a Professional for the Job

You wouldn’t hire just anyone to replace the breaks on your car. Not only would you hire a professional to do the work, but you would follow the recommended maintenance specified for your car model. You’d probably read the owner’s manual so that you know correct operation, and you’d schedule the routine maintenance as recommended. You’d probably do this because if a car isn’t properly maintained it can kill you. This is true of many things, including your fireplace.

The Industry Standard for Certified Installers

When you’re looking for a professional installer for your fireplace or appliance, it’s important to choose an installer certified by the National Fireplace Institute (NFI). An NFI certified installer is proficient in one or more fire-burning specialties including: wood-burning, gas-burning, and pellet-burning fireplaces and appliances.

When you hire an NFI certified installer you can rest easy knowing they are trained in:

  • compliance with code regulations and manufacturers’ instructions
  • size, type, features of the hearth appliance
  • Proper materials for heat protection of walls and floors
  • Appropriate size, type, configuration, and height of venting system
  • Selection of proper fuel
  • Guidelines for operation and maintenance of the hearth system.

To maintain certification, NFI certified professionals are constantly undergoing training and staying abreast of industry standards and changes, so they are ready for anything that may come up with a fireplace system.
