A well-functioning chimney liner is a must when it comes to the safety and efficiency of your heating appliance. The CSIA highlights three main functions of a chimney liner: they protect your home from high temperatures, they protect the masonry from deterioration, and they help your chimney properly vent out smoke and fumes.
If you don’t have a liner or if your current liner is damaged, you increase danger for your home. Some of which include, house fires, carbon monoxide exposure, smoke back up, excess creosote accumulation, and more. If you need help, do not put your home or fireplace in harm’s way. Rather, contact our team about receiving the care you deserve!
We offer three types of chimney liners. Learn more about each of these below, then contact us with any questions or inquiries. We’d love to get you started on this process with the fit that works best for you.
If you are working with a tighter budget then a clay tile liner may be the best investment for you. These do an effective job, but they need to be regularly maintained in order to avoid any damages. Also, some appliances simply are not compatible with the older style clay liner, so we will have to ensure your system is equipped to handle it.
Now, if you want a liner that will fill every gap and is sure to stand the test of time, then cast-in-place options are a great fit. They rarely corrode, they improve your appliance’s efficiency, and their streamlined structure won’t break down any time soon. They take some time to install, as the materials need to properly set, but once finished, you will be set for a long time.
Stainless steel liners are known for not rusting or breaking down, and they come with a lifetime warranty, so you won’t need to stress should damages happen to occur down the line. These liners are compatible with a wide range of fuel types, and they provide long-lasting results without breaking your budget. Whether you are upgrading your current liner, adding one to a historic home, or resizing your flue, stainless steel is always a great option.
Stainless steel, clay tile, and cast-in-place are the three types of liners we offer here at A-1 Chimney Specialists. We also have HeatShield which may be an appropriate option for your home. HeatShield can be used to either resurface or repair an existing liner, offering folks a different solution. This effective product works wonders when it comes to restoring your existing chimney liner, and you will be amazed at how quickly things look like new again.
A chimney without a properly-fitted or a broken down liner cannot be used safely. Don’t delay. Call today so we can set you up right!
