What type of coverage do you need?

Are you thinking about changing to a cozy, cheery wood burning stove? You may find that your local building inspector or fire department is very interested in your plans, so it’s important to talk to them so that you can be sure of having your wood burning stove installed in compliance with building and fire codes. Naturally, you want to ensure your stove is safe to reduce the chance that you’ll be making a stove-related fire claim on your Philadelphia home insurance.

Correct installation of a wood burning stove is important, as is proper use and maintenance to avoid the risk of chimney fires. Fire safety authorities recommend burning wood that is dry and well-seasoned, and that creates a hot fire that burns completely and produces minimum smoke. Don’t use cardboard, paper, or trash to fuel a wood burning stove, and never attempt to start a fire using flammable liquids.

Schedule a regular annual inspection and cleaning of your wood burning stove and chimney by a certified chimney specialist. As a further precaution, be sure to install smoke alarms outside bedrooms and on every level of your house. Smoke alarms cannot prevent a fire, but at least they provide an early warning so that people can make a speedy escape before a fire catches hold.

Philadelphia home insurance may provide some financial compensation if a wood burning stove catches fire, but a claim for a house fire is one we hope you’ll never have to make. With The Weimer Group, you can trust our agency to give the advice you need to make the best decisions!
