Description:In the statutory annual inspection of oil burners, the owner has to show the chimney-sweep a contract with an authorised service provider or pay the chimney-sweep for the inspection. The inspection includes measurement of temperature, CO and CO2 content of the smoke and an evaluation report for the owner. Based on fixed maximum values for these figures, the chimney-sweep can oblige the owner to have the oil burner adjusted within four weeks. The 700 000 small oil burning furnaces in Denmark are inspected by 2 500 trained consultants. Inspections have resulted in improved energy efficiency. For example, average chimney heat loss has been reduced from 19% to 12-13%.
