Is Your Chimney Liner Serving Its Purpose?

Nowadays, we know that every chimney should have a liner, be it terra cotta, stainless steel, or aluminum. But, chimneys haven’t always been properly lined. Do you know what kind of condition your liner is in, or if you have one at all?

If you’ve been following the recommendations of the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), you’ve been keeping up with annual chimney inspections and should know exactly what condition your chimney liner is in. But if not, give Your Chimney Sweep a call! We perform thorough Chim-Scan chimney video inspections and can get a close look at your chimney liner from top to bottom. If we find that your liner is damaged, we can reline or repair the liner to restore the safety and efficiency of your chimney system and protect you from house fires and carbon monoxide poisoning.

Why Are Chimney Liners So Important?

When you light up a fire in your fireplace, heat, gases, and other byproducts are created. The chimney liner’s job is to keep the masonry of the chimney protected, contain those byproducts, and usher them up and out of the home. But when the chimney liner is riddled with holes, it can allow heat to escape the chimney masonry and ignite nearby beams and walls. These holes can also allow smoke and carbon monoxide to enter your air supply.

But having a quality chimney liner isn’t just about safety – it’s also about efficiency! If your chimney liner has holes, gaps, or is otherwise damaged or blocked, air flow will be impacted and your appliance’s efficiency levels will decline.

What Are My Relining Options?

Here at Your Chimney Sweep, we offer aluminum and stainless steel relining options. Here’s a little bit about each:

Aluminum – Aluminum liners are the least costly option, and they can provide years of reliable service. Unfortunately, these liners are not safe for use with all fuel types, so if you have a wood appliance or are considering switching to wood, you’ll want to look at other options.

Stainless Steel – Stainless steel liners are the most durable and versatile option, and are safe for use with all fuel types. They cost a bit more than aluminum, but most come with a lifetime warranty when professionally installed, so it’s an investment worth making! Learn more about these long-lasting liners here!

If you have any questions about our chimney relining options or would like to schedule an appointment to have your chimney inspected or relined, call Your Chimney Sweep at 317-243-9687 or click here! We look forward to hearing from you!
