When it comes to the various parts of your chimney, they all need to work together to help your fireplace function efficiently. A big piece of your chimney’s anatomy is the liner. Many homeowners with older fireplace systems have clay liners which, unfortunately, can show some major signs of deterioration over time. If you’re having issues your current chimney liner, call in the CSIA certified staff at Magic Broom Chimney Sweeps today – we can help you out!
The Role Of The Chimney Liner
If you’re on the fence about whether or not you want to invest in repairs, let us help you out. The chimney liner plays a big part in helping your entire system run more efficiently, so putting off any necessary repairs jobs will cause you a lot more money, stress, and time down the line. Learn more about the role of the chimney liner below!
First of all, the chimney liner protects your home from the heat of your fireplace. As you can imagine, the flames that build up in your firebox can get mighty hot and, if any of that intense heat is allowed past the fireplace and chimney, your entire home could be in jeopardy. That’s why cracks and holes in your chimney liner should never be avoided. When flames are given a clear pathway to more fuel, they take advantage of it! It’s not worth risking a house fire… Let our qualified sweeps take a look.
Another role the liner takes is protecting the masonry itself. When your brick and mortar are exposed to the toxins your fires produce, they deteriorate at a much more rapid pace. This means the lifespan of your chimney will be cut short, and you’ll be due for some big repairs and reconstruction jobs before you know it. Not to mention, as things deteriorate, harmful gases will be able to easily escape into your home and affect the health of loved ones.
Lastly, your liner ensures that your appliance can run better than ever with every passing year. A fireplace will not function as well without proper airflow and, when your flue is out of whack, your drafting gets messed up, too. This not only lowers efficiency… it encourages creosote accumulation, too! Avoid the hassle. Let us help you out soon!
Why Stainless Steel?
As we stated earlier, clay liners just don’t perform up to our standards. That’s why we recommend stainless steel liners in every relining job we take on! While clay easily breaks down, stainless steel can withstand just about anything – heat, vapors, flames… you name it! The best part is, they come with a lifetime guarantee. When we install your new liner, you won’t have to worry about it ever again!
