If you need your chimney cleaned or repaired, you should always hire a professional. This is because Chimney Liners are essential in preventing dangerous gases and fumes from entering your home. A qualified professional will be able to clean and repair your chimney quickly and efficiently, ensuring that it is safe for use.
It is also important to have your chimney regularly inspected. This is because chimneys can crack or become blocked over time, which can lead to dangerous gases and fumes entering your home. A qualified professional will be able to inspect your chimney and identify any potential problems.
Liners in chimneys serve three main functions
First, they protect the masonry from the corrosive effect of flue gases. Second, they prevent dangerous fumes and gases from entering your home. Third, they help to improve the efficiency of your chimney by providing a smooth surface for the gases to travel up.
Types of chimney liners
There are two main types of chimney liners: Clay and Metal.
Clay liners are the most common type of liner and are made from fired clay bricks or tiles. They are typically used in masonry chimneys. Clay liners provide good protection against the corrosive effects of flue gases and help to improve the efficiency of your chimney. However, they can crack or break over time and need to be regularly inspected and repaired.
Metal liners are made from stainless steel or aluminum and are typically used in prefabricated chimneys. Metal liners provide excellent protection against the corrosive effects of flue gases and help to improve the efficiency of your chimney. They are also less likely to crack or break than clay liners and do not require as much regular maintenance.
When to replace your chimney liner
You should replace your chimney liner if it is damaged or broken. You should also replace your chimney liner if it is more than 20 years old. If you are unsure whether or not your chimney liner needs to be replaced, you should contact a qualified professional for advice.
No matter what type of chimney liner you have, it is important to have it regularly inspected and cleaned by a professional. This will ensure that your chimney is safe for use and that it is functioning properly.
