Significance Of The CSIA
If you’ve been researching different chimney companies, you may have heard more than a few references to the CSIA. The CSIA (or Chimney Safety Institute of America) holds the standard as far as training sweeps and educating homeowners on fireplace safety. This organization is highly respected by businesses throughout the country, and there’s a reason we take pride in holding its certification!
First of all, the CSIA has been around for quite some time. It started back in 1983, and it has been growing and thriving every year since. When you depend on an organization for highly-quality training, you want one that has stood the test of time. The CSIA has been around for 34 years, and they’re not slowing down anytime soon – now that says something!
The CSIA is also a non-profit, run only by volunteers and people who passionately care about chimney care and fireplace safety. There is a high code of ethics involved with being a CSIA certified chimney sweep, and they hold their trainees accountable at every turn. If you feel your sweep has done you wrong, they want to know about it! The CSIA is all about protecting homeowners from any potential scams, and a strict ethical standpoint is the way to do just that.
Another positive feature about the CSIA is that they require their sweeps to renew their certifications on a regular basis. Regulations, codings, techniques, and technology are ever-changing in the chimney industry, so staying up-to-date on the most effective practices is important. When a tech gets certified by the CSIA, they must renew this certification every 3 years in order to hold onto it. When you hire a CSIA certified professional, you better believe they know their stuff
Serving the Public
There’s no doubt about it – the CSIA is here to serve the public! They have an intense focus on promoting fireplace safety, and they strive to contribute to the industry by focusing on how they can better take care of fireplaces and chimney all throughout the country. It’s no wonder why they are nationally recognized, and they are promoted in various forms of popular media year after year!
