Hearth product retailers offer a wide selection of fireplaces, stoves, inserts and accessories to fit any home and any style, however, planning and installing hearth products and their venting systems requires experience, technical knowledge and skill. Numerous decisions – from proper floor protection to appliance sizing and placement to venting system compatibility and height – should all be made with the expertise of a specialist.
One of the ways to identify a competent specialist is to check their credentials. The National Fireplace Institute®, an independent, non-profit certification agency, has created the standard for certification in the fireplace and stove industry. Only those who pass a rigorous examination covering fundamentals of proper installation receive NFI Specialist Certification.
