IBAO Webinar: Solid Fuel Heating – What Brokers Need To Know

March 29, 2023

Following this interactive webinar participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the many types of solid-fuel heating appliances
  • Realize the insurance concerns with the installation, operation, and maintenance of these appliances
  • Explain the insurance concerns associated with solid fuel heating to your clients

A client asks you the following questions. Are you prepared to answer them?

  • Why is my insurance company worried about my woodstove or pellet stove?
  • What is a WETT inspection and who is qualified to perform one?
  • Why do I need to clean my chimney every year?
  • Why do I need a back-up heat source when I already have an outdoor wood-fired boiler?

Wood-burning appliances in all their variations require extra care and handling by the client but also by the broker!
